1. Activist Feedback

One volunteer and her partner leafleted at Winter Jam in Ypsilanti, MI. She shared, “It was great! That was my first time volunteering and it was such a cool experience. I had some awesome conversations! I was able to pass out most of the booklets and ALL of the jerky! People were very appreciative. Thank you again for letting me be a part of it!”

Upcoming Activist Opportunities

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-June Issue of “The Peaceable Table” Is Now Online

Contents include:

  • The Editor's Corner Essay "The Fear and Bliss of Oneness" reflects on the mystical experiences close to death of three persons. They experienced oneness with God and with those they encountered in their lives, and these experiences were somehow both terrible and blissful.
  • Have you heard about the happy three-way marriage of a family of three adults eagles and their three eaglets in Illinois? See the NewsNote.
  • One of the Unset Gems is a well-known line from T.S. Eliot, "Humankind cannot bear very much reality." Judging from the union that we will probably experience at some point after death, one can see something of what Eliot may mean.
  • Our Pioneer is the likeable and colorful George Cheyne, an eighteenth-century physician, who went veg first for his girth and his health, and renewed his regime out of love to his fellow humans and other animals.
  • Try the New Zealand Supper Dish, our Recipe for this month. It is both simple and sumptuous.
  • Finally, the Poetry selection is Ella Wheeler Wilcox's "The Voice of the Voiceless."
