2. This Week’s Sermon from Rev. Frank and Mary Hoffman
The Birth of Jesus Christ

3. Matthew Scully Quote
Scully, the author of Dominion: The Power of Man, the Suffering of Animals, and the Call to Mercy, is quoted in The National Review:
It gets us nowhere to diminish animal welfare as a moral concern by changing the subject to instances of great human affliction, as if we cannot be expected to care about both, or as if those very afflictions are a constant preoccupation in our daily lives. Such answers are the first reflex of many people, amounting to the non sequitur “There is human suffering, therefore animal suffering is beneath my attention.”… Compassion for animals doesn’t drain away some finite reserve of moral energy and idealism, to the detriment of human welfare, but surely adds to the supply. In any case it usually consists in simply not doing bad things to them, and in preventing wrongdoing by others. Cruelty issues like factory farming present specific moral choices. If we’re making the wrong ones, then to shift attention to other woes in the world is … idle and evasive”.
