1. Activist Feedback

Jen, who leafleted at Winter Jam in Cleveland, writes:

I got there at 6:30, and I distributed my entire box in literally 20 minutes flat. There were SO many people coming from all directions, it was insanely crowded! And it seemed to be mostly young people.

2. Commentary on the Lectionary:
January 24: The Body Has Many Parts

1 Corinthians 12:12-31a

This passage features Paul’s well-known analogy between the body of Christ and the human body. Each has parts with different functions that are crucial to the proper functioning of the whole.

Increasingly, we recognize that all of Creation is interrelated and codependent. It was not possible in Paul’s time for humanity to change the climate, and similarly humanity’s ability to alter eco-systems is vastly greater today than 2000 years ago. Jesus repeatedly expressed concern about the welfare of those on earth, with particular focus on those who were weak and vulnerable. When humanity plunders and destroys God’s earth, the first victims are generally animals. The next victims are weak and vulnerable people, and the ultimate victims will likely be those people whose callousness and selfishness have contributed most heavily to the devastation.

Stephen R. Kaufman, M.D.

4. Excellent Blog

I’ve found the blog from Jack Norris, RD to be helpful and informative. He carefully evaluates the scientific evidence on health aspects of a plant-based diet. To get his blog, go to www.jacknorrisrd.com.
