In Reference to: Human-Animal Reconciliation

Dear Daniel:

Yes, your answers and comments were very helpful, and confirm much of what we have thought and felt over the years. And, as a Messianic Jew, I (Frank) have experienced similar experiences.

Our encounters with animals have been very similar, too. One day we had a women come to visit and we went for a walk, and we were talking about the animals. As we were relating our own experiences, I was silently praying that the Lord would also show her, and almost immediately a damsel fly flew by and I put up by finger and he or she landed on it, and I told Marcela to do the same and as I reached my finger over to hers, the damsel fly jumped over to her finger, which delighted her immensely. And a little while later, we saw a deer with her two children and were able to get very close to them. God's blessings are all around us.

We also had the same experience with anger, but our change was very quick, and may have had a lot to do with our successful prison ministry in a maximum security facility.

The challenge we face today is overcoming and functioning through the constant state of mourning we feel for the suffering humans and other animals of the world. We see and write about the horror every day.

Where are you located? We live in Athens, NY.

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
