"If it's worth anything, it's worth doing poorly". GK Chesterton.
Since the "virtual workshop" I had planned is not perfected yet, I would like to offer you a CD and handout that was given to those attending the first "Justice in Pieces" workshop.
Stephanie Block's talk is forty minutes long and worth listening to over and over again. Saul Alinsky "tactics" have are alive and well in Oregon and in our Church. For a preview go to www.faithinpubliclife.org
Hilary Clinton did her thesis on Saul and he mentored her until her death. If you could send a donation to VOCAL PO Box 458 Sublimity, OR 97385 that would be great, HOWEVER, this is a labor of love and "God cannot be outdone in generousity", so please, I'm happy to make them as a gift.
Wonderful opportunity. Donna Steichen, author of "Ungodly Rage, the face of Catholic Feminism has agreed to a trip to Oregon for a Justice in Pieces workshop.
Our affiliation with Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon has attached us to Faith in Public Life affiliation and we need further education to protect our way of life and True Justice and True Ecumenism.
With the "ordination" of Toni Tortorilla, at an Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon Church and a former Archdiocesan employee and "Catholic" counselor, Oregon needs this.
If you are unaware of Donna Steichen, please buy or borrow Ungodly Rage. www.amazon.com has them new and used.
This will take place in early 2008 and for this event we will need a venue and the costs for her talk and airfare. We have time to read Ungodly Rage and learn and ask questions. Final plans will be sent out soon, so we can advertise.
"I am, in fact, convinced, that what feminism promotes in its radical form is no longer the Christianity that we know; it is another religion."
Pope Benedict XVI
speaking (as Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger) on radical feminism.
