1. The July Issue of “The Peaceable Table” Is Now Online

Contents include:

  • In the Glimpse of the Peaceable Kingdom, Oregon resident Mike Jivanjee poses for a photo with his animal-companion goose Kyle, whom he rescued in infancy, and who has taken his companion status very seriously ever since.
  • A Letter by subscriber Lisa Adam questions the significance of feelings of revulsion some vegans feel when they accidentally eat meat.
  • The American Medical Association has announced that hospitals ought to stop serving processed meats, and move in the direction of plant-based meals.
  • Thomas Tryon, an extraordinary English mystic of the seventeenth century, is our Pioneer for July. Born into a working-class family, he taught himself to read and write, prospered as a hatter, and wrote many books promoting compassionate causes, including vegetarianism.
  • This month's Recipe, Black Bean & Veggie Casserole, is really special, in texture, taste, and healthfulness.
  • Professor Pamela Hedrun Reviews The Animal's Agenda: Freedom, Compassion, and Coexistence, by biologist Marc Bekoff and bioethicist Jessica Pierce.On the basis of what biologists have learned about animals, the authors give a morally devastating critique of the human use of animals in agriculture, research, and other areas, including a rejection of the totally inadequate "welfarist" approach to these enormities.
  • Our Poetry selections are two super-brief, light-hearted poems by G.K. Chesterton (on a snail) and Strickland Gilliland (on microbes).
