1. The November-December Issue of “The Peaceable Table” Is Now Online

Contents include:

  • Our Glimpse of the Peaceable Kingdom features an arranged friendship between a widowed and grieving orangutan named Tonda and a ginger cat named TK. Tonda recovered from her depression, and the two became fast friends. Their story is told in a book for children entitled (of course) Tonda and TK.
  • "Happy Endings" is the title of the Nov-Dec. Editor's Corner Essay. Whether or not a story has a happy ending is important for what it implies about the real world, particularly our labor for justice. When seen as a parable, the story says that, despite ignorance, violence, and suffering in our world, hope is valid; there can be a happy ending, or at least a bittersweet one.
  • One of the NewsNotes tells of the successful rescue and rehabilitation of four koalas from the terrible fires in Australia in the southern hemisphere's last summer.
  • We have a Pilgrimage account of Laura's life. Having had a deep sense of awareness of animals' minds from her earliest days, she couldn't understand how people could thoughtlessly eat them.
    At age ten she announced that "I am now a vegetarianism," and has maintained that commitment ever since.
  • This issue's Recipe is for a tasty lentil-cheeze casserole called "Christmas Roast," from a 1967 British vegetarian cookbook that I acquired in 1971. Enjoy.
  • One of the Poetry selections is a song of thanksgiving entitled "Thanks Be to God," from the tune to a 1920 song of the same name.

Happy holydays! May all of our stories finally have a happy ending in God, the Home of all beings.
