1. The May-June Issue of “The Peaceable Table” Is Now Online

Contents include:

  • The Glimpse of the Peaceable Kingdom features a tender relationship between a big Labrador dog named Fred and a little orphaned duckling named Dennis. Fred adopted and nurtured Dennis after the duckling was rescued by compassionate humans.
  • "Can killing an animal be compensated for by the creation of a new animal?" This question, the topic of our Editor's Corner Guest Essay by Karen Davis of UPC, would immediately receive a "no" answer. From anyone who ever loved and lost an animal. Davis answers the question as posed by Utilitarian philosopher Peter Singer, a pioneer who has, over the years, moved toward affirming that the answer is "yes." She gives good reasons for a "no" answer.
  • One of the NewsNotes tells that veterinarian Elliott Katz, founder and president of In Defense of Animals, died in March at age 86. (It is encouraging to see that the Los Angeles Times, a major newspaper, marks this event with a long and laudatory obituary.)
  • Our Pioneer in this issue is Ralph Waldo Trine, a leading Positive Thought writer, whose major concern was not just achieving success or riches, but spiritual growth and love for all beings, including animals.
  • The Poetry selection for March-April is "Rainbow Rooster" by Hilda Conkling. The poem celebrates the beauty of the rooster, while noticing his vanity.
  • Vegetable Cutlets, from a Recipe in a 1987 cookbook produced by the Animal Kinship Committee of Orange Grove Friends Meeting, are tasty patties that provide a good introduction to compassionate and healthy eating for pre-vegans, as well as being enjoyable to long-time vegetarians or vegans.

To read all or selections in this issue, go to Issue 166.
