Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

The Carpenter's Son

To the "Christians"

By Francis Adams

Take, then, your paltry Christ,

Your gentleman God.

We want the carpenter's son,

With his saw and hod.

We want the man who loved

The poor and the oppressed.

Who rebuked the Rich man and King

And the Scribe and the Priest.

We want the Galilean

Who knew cross and rod.

It's your "good taste"

that prefers

A bastard "God"!

"Nonviolence is the greatest force at the disposal of mankind. It is mightier than the mightiest weapon of destruction devised by the ingenuity of man." Mahatma Gandhi

I am a little pencil in the hand of a writing God who is sending a love letter to the world.--Mother Teresa

An eye for an eye and the whole world goes blind. - Gandhi

"It is for us the living...to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us --...that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth." -Abraham Lincoln, Gettysburg Address

"...and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?" -Micah 6:8
