Humane Society presidents/CEOs coming to do a talk!

Postby LilGreenPuffer on Wed Nov 02, 2011 1:08 pm

The Humane Society presidents/CEOs are coming to my college tomorrow to give a talk on stewardship and taking care of God's whole creation. Event description:

Dr. Matthew Sleeth, author of Serve God, Save the Planet and co-founder of Blessed Earth, and Wayne Pecelle, President and CEO of the Humane Society, will team up for an interview style talk in which they share about the compassionate work the Humane Society does. Dr. Sleeth will weave in the scriptural framework to care for and preach the Gospel to all of God's creatures.


Dr. Sleeth's book:

Blessed Earth:

So excited! While I may not really be a Christian anymore, I am excited to see Christians taking up the call to stewardship!
"I will give you a talisman. Whenever you are in doubt, or when the self becomes too much with you, apply the following test. Recall the face of the poorest and the weakest man whom you may have seen, and ask yourself, if the step you contemplate is going to be of any use to him or her. Will she gain anything by it? Will it restore her to a control over her own life and destiny? In other words, will it lead to freedom for the hungry and spiritually starving millions? Then you will find your doubts and your self melt away."

Wayne Pacelle is a great speaker. I've worked in animal welfare for 14+ years and have heard him speak a number of times. You'll enjoy it, I guarantee it. And he's not exactly hard on the eyes, either. ;)
Yo ho, yo ho, a puffer's life for me.

It was great! A nice range of topics, and great fun. :D Plus, I got to talk with Wayne Pacelle and get his contact info for internship/job stuff when I graduate this May.

And he's not exactly hard on the eyes, either. ;)

Not my type at all, but undeniably good-looking! Maybe if I was ten or fifteen years older...

LoL I am 26 and I thought he was nice looking! It totally helped that in all the pics that I saw him in, he had some kind of animal in his arms....now if I could get Denzil to love all animals as much as he loves the dogs, then he'd let me have a menagerie...LOL! I would have birds, every type of puffer, horses, and my dogs. And of course, all would have huge living spaces and be loved into oblivion..

I still prefer slightly darker skin...you know, them darn Filipino men...LoL well, only one in particular! Hahahaha.
