A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.


Thought for Today – 4 August 2008
By Mary T. Hoffman

Howard Lyman is an outstanding speaker whom we have enjoyed seeing and hearing many times. Here are a few of his words of wisdom:

“Veganism isn’t just a strict vegetarian diet; it is a complete philosophical viewpoint. It is practical in outlook, simple to understand and aspires to the highest environmental and spiritual values. I am sure it holds the key to a future lifestyle for a humane planetary guardianship…”

– Howard Lyman, ex-cattle rancher turned vegan, international lecturer, founder of the non-profit “Voice for a Viable Future,” and author of the best-selling book: Mad Cowboy. His “Mad Cowboy: The Documentary” is available as a DVD and has been shown on TV.
