Chris and I handed out 2400 CVA booklets at Winter Jam at McKenzie Arena at University of Tennessee Chattanooga today mostly to kids in beautiful sunny 76 degree weather. Unfortunately, the crowd was about 2/3 to half the size as last year. On guy remembered getting a booklet from me in Knoxville and we chatted in Nashville; we said hi again today.

Leafleting and tabling are effective, enjoyable ways to show our brothers and sisters in Christ that a plant-based diet is good for Godís 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 July-August Issue of the Peaceable Table Is Now Online

  • The Glimpse of the Peaceable Kingdom features a picture from 2010 of a male dove named Noah tenderly fathering a litter of orphaned bunnies.
  • "Killing Animals for Entertainment," the Editor's Corner Essay, describes some of the reasons people claiming Christian convictions engage in "sport" hunting, and problems with their position, such as nutrition.
  • In one of the NewsNotes, the firm Beyond Meat made its stock market debut with the price of shares rising no less than 163% on the first day - the biggest since 2000.
  • James N. Brune, a seismologist and supporter of QUAK who went veg on his own in the 1950 - and is still veg - is our Pioneer.
  • Robert Ellwood reviews God, Nimrod, and the World, an anthology about "sport" hunting by avowed Christians which for the most part favors hunting as an acceptable Christian activity.
  • Zucchini Lasagne is our recipe for this issue. It is from The Peaceable Kitchen, a cookbook produced by Sandpoint, Idaho Friends in 1994.
  • The Poetry selection, by Thomas Hardy, briefly sketches a scene in which a deer standing in the snow looks through in the window at people in a house. She (or he) sees us, but we do not see her...
