Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
Peace Begins with our Meals

Today, Christmas Eve and tomorrow, Christmas, many of us will get together to celebrate the birth of Christ with friends and relatives, who might not share our choice of a compassionate plant-based diet. These type of celebrations are sometimes hard on us because we witness how indifferent people tend to be toward the pain and death of God’s animals, who suffer unnecessarily unimaginable pain and terror in factory farms and slaughterhouses. What’s sometimes worse, is that the vast majority of people eat animals simply for their taste and convenience, hardly good excuses.

The celebration of the birth of Christ, the “Prince of Peace”, should involve foods that align with His teachings of mercy, peace and love. There is no peace or love or mercy in the raising of animals for food, because the meat, dairy and egg industries look at God’s animals as commodities for profit and power.

We can spread peace, compassion and love by being witnesses of the faith of Christ, and showing people that we can live very healthy, joyous and fulfilling lives by embracing a lifestyle that creates as little suffering as possible.
