1. Activist Feedback

Rick Hershey gave reports about two events last month:

On 4/26, Chip and I handed out 600 CVA booklets for Outcry at the Curb Event Center at Belmont University in Nashville. We had problems with rain, and we only had access from the sidewalk along the city street.

Dianne, Chip, and I handed out 865 CVA booklets at Intrust Bank Arena for Outcry in Wichita on 4/13.

Leafleting and tabling are effective, enjoyable ways to show our brothers and sisters in Christ that a plant-based diet is good for God’s Creation. When you volunteer for the CVA, the CVA now donates $16/hr. for tabling and $25/hr. for up to 3 hours for leafleting to the veg. or animal protection group of your choice. Contact Lorena at lorenavalenziveg@gmail.com if you can help.

2. The May Issue of “The Peaceable Table” Is Now Online

Contents include:

  • The Editor's Corner Essay, "On the Virtue of Temper," reflects on the stiff challenge of building self-discipline, without which strong and even necessary feelings of grief and anger may boil up out of control, and do much harm.
  • One of the NewsNotes reminds us that UPC has declared May to be Respect for Chickens Month.
  • "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves," urges one of the Unset Gems, from the book of Proverbs.(That group of defenseless ones certainly includes chickens.)
  • The May Pioneer is an English saint of the eleventh century, Wulfstan, who became a vegetarian without any outside nudging or support, and remained compassionate to animals and humans all his life.
  • "Corn-Stuffed Peppers" makes for a delicious entree for any dinner.The Recipe is veganized from a 1986 vegetarian cookbook entitled "A Feast of Friendship," produced by members of Orange Grove Meeting in Pasadena.
