Christians Against All Animal Abuse
"Christ’s redemption is for the whole of creation!"
Article from Winter 2003 Issue
'All that's necessary for evil to thrive is that good folk do nothing’
Yes, one has heard the above expression many times; the danger is
when one ceases to be challenged by it. Not all of us are gifted in
walking round markets holding a banner, and it doesn't come easy.
Nevertheless, degrading and deadly times demand drastic measures. And
when one steps out to do the difficult for Christ, the feel of His
presence becomes far more than compensation!
The season in the Church calendar is that of Advent. It reminds us of
how Christ came over two thousand years ago. It tells of how He will
come again at the end of this era to be our righteous judge. But we are
equally reminded of how He comes to us today in a variety of ways, and
primarily as we take up a cross of self-denial in order to further His
cause, which He has placed upon our hearts to fulfil. Our Blessed Lord
is no one's debtor and as we step out for Him it is surprising how many
well wishers one encounters on the road. That which we were possibly
hesitant in doing becomes a heavenly blessing.

As for the fellow with a trilby on the left, he stated that it was quite
amazing to find a cleric doing what the church had abysmally failed to
do. Admittedly, he went on to say: 'these broiler sheds for fowl are
infinitely more atrocious than the quibbling that centres around fox
hunting!' Well, he may well have had a point, but two wrongs never make
a right. He was entitled to his view; as was another hunter on the
previous day spent in Rhyl. Blood ‘sports’ I could never justify, but
the fellow returning with a mug of lemon tea to keep us warm during
campaigning was certainly, more than welcome. Here's a picture of us
taken in Rhyl by Doreen:
