(Block Island - 8 Aug 02 - Ducks - 02)  As we were watching these ducks, we couldn't help but think about part of the consequence of God granting us reluctant permission to eat animals: "the fear of you and terror of you shall be upon [them]" (Genesis 9:2).  We get the feeling that animals would rather be our loving friends rather than have constant fear of us, and that Isaiah's prophecy of the Peaceable Kingdom (Isaiah 11:6-9) is for the here and now, if we would stop our violence and allow it to come to pass.  There are plenty of plant foods to eat.  We don't need to kill animals for food!

Lamb Right Lamb Left Presented here are just a few of the countless components of God's creation.  Just as we cannot have human and animal life without water and plants, neither can we have lasting peace without love and compassion.  It is our hope and prayer that this series will motivate people to live and act in a cruelty-free manner; that we would no longer hurt or destroy each other, the animals or our environment.
