Smedley Butler

At the time of his deathMajor General Smedley Darlington Butler, also known as “The Fighting Quaker”, was the most decorated Marine in US history; he was the only person to be awarded a Marine Corps Brevet Medal and a Medal of Honor for two separate military actions. He had also become an unrelenting voice against the business of war.

Raised by prominent Quaker parents, Smedley Butler defied his pacifist lineage by joining the Marines just before his 17th birthday. He served in Honduras, Nicaragua, Mexico and Haiti (earning his Medals of Honor in Mexico and Haiti). Butler was known for his leadership and commitment to the welfare of the men under his command. He rose quickly through the ranks to become, at age 48, one of the youngest major generals.

Prior to World War II, Butler spoke out against what he saw as admiration for Fascism and for Italy´s leader Benito Mussolini. He was punished for telling an unfavorable story about Mussolini, avoided court-martial by accepting a reprimand. Because of his rank, he was able to write his own reprimand and never apologized to Mussolini.

Butler retired from the military in 1931. By then, he was beginning to question US involvement in foreign conflicts. He had come to believe that war–in particular WWI–was really a profitable business for the few and at the expense of thousands of lives. He thought of himself as a cog in the imperialist war machine.

In a booklet titled War is a Racket, Butler wrote, “In the World War [I] a mere handful garnered the profits of the conflict. At least 21,000 new millionaires and billionaires were made in the United States during the World War….How many of these war millionaires shouldered a rifle?….The general public shoulders the bill. And what is this bill? …Newly placed gravestones. Mangled bodies. Shattered minds…For a great many years, as a soldier, I had a suspicion that war was a racket; not until I retired to civil life did I fully realize it. Now that I see the international war clouds gathering, as they are today, I must face it and speak out.”

War is a Racket grew out of a series of speeches Butler gave to whatever group wanted to hear his views. Though he faced criticism, Butler was steadfast in his beliefs about war, US imperialism, and a growing Pro-Fascist movement. He spoke frankly and honestly about his experiences and opinions, and was very popular with the American public.

In 1934, Butler went before the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) to expose a conspiracy against the government. He had been recruited by a group of wealthy Pro-Fascists had hoped to use him in a coup against President Franklin D. Roosevelt. He went along, gathering intelligence about the plot, and took it to Congress. Butler’s assertions were not aggressively pursued, and the matter was largely dismissed. However, an internal report to Congress from HUAC confirmed the veracity of the plot.

Face each difficulty, however great and seemingly unconquerable, as you go forward towards it. The strength you will require from Me for that adventure into danger, as it may seem to you, will fortify you for its overcoming. “Fear thou not to, for I AM with thee, Be not afraid for I am thy God.

That’s a pretty striking statement. We love to talk about being “alive” in Christ. So why do I see so many Christians trudging through life powerless, purposeless, and lost in their pursuit of Jesus? great culling away those who just do not get it… hope you aren’t one such individual. what’s the scene for those prepared? in the words of a great man: “I don’t know…” neither do i, yet the sadder comparison speaks for itself: Heaven or Hell; why would you get lazy when you understand what it’s like in either one? choices, hope everyone makes a wiser decision.

John 4:16 Lord, bless us and this evening hour, and in Thy Mercy heal us all. Do not think that suffering is the only path into My Kingdom. There are sunlit glades, and ways amid the loveliest flowers, along which the steps and hearts of men are drawn to Me. There are birds and laughter and butterflies, and warm, life-giving summer air, and with these as tender companions and friends, the Joy-Way into the Kingdom can be taken. Bleak, cold, and desolate, brier-beset and stony, are not all the ways. Leave all to Me. The choice of ways, the guidance in the Way. But when the sunlight calls accept it gladly. Even in the Spirit-World appreciation results from contrary experience. Can the fireside of home be more dear than to the traveler who has forced his way over bleak moor and through blinding storm? Take to your hearts this word of cheer. “He will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able but will, with the temptation, also find a way of escape that ye may be able to bear it.” The world is not the Kingdom. In the world ye shall have tribulation but “be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

Live with Me, the Conquering Christ, and the Joy and Peace of conquest shall be yours too. https://wordpress.com/view/the3rdonlive.wordpress.com

1 John 4:9-10

November 12, 2o21 1:41.34 pm

To us, the greatest demonstration of God’s love for us has been his sending his only Son into the world to give us life through him. We see real love, not in that fact that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son to make personal atonement for our sins. (PHILLIPS)

It may sound surprising, but if you follow Dolly Parton

for a while, one thing is clear: God is the most important thing

in her life. Dolly is very outspoken about her faithin GodGod and Jesus

often play a major role in the music she makes. She certainly isn’t ashamed of

her faith. It doesn’t matter which talk show or which stage she is on, she always likes

to talk about her personal relationship with Jesus. And about prayer!David BuckleEVNGRFollow On

Jesus fills me with hope and strength,” she says in an interview. “Prayer helps me ]

to persevere under all circumstances. Every day I pray that God would help me to

be a light in the world. To bring His love and light into the world and to bring Him

glory every day!”

do have a few books in the fuel-tank
at each item’s ending IS but A new
beginning the eventful ride my
day’s deliver to me each
morning as I slumber
betwixt seven a.m 
and 8:oo am. 

it’s then that i arise
to meet the day with
a smile on this face;
and sometimes a smirk
(which is dependant on what I will to be my more immediate future )
irregardless of a waking
*premonitions and how
they make me feel,
immediate like.


a calm contemplative
premonitions filling my mind
as I feel the warm shower on the
back of my neck; what to do now? 
breakfast, that bag of cereal I received
too in trade for  few bucks at FOOD LION!
sometimes i get iced cream sandwiches, nice…


 NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT  ;’) 

had long known, via his Mother in 1988 that this is the one of two beginning’s; a

conglomeration of essay retrieved from this iMAC’s brain – go be chill; We got a long way to go…

I was on a retreat at Jamberoo Abbey. The nun who was my spiritual director on that retreat mentioned that the great majority of people who came to that place for healing and refreshment had one great question in their life: “am I loved?” I had to confess that resonated with me as well.

We can spend a lot of time and energy trying to deepen our love of God. But the Scriptures emphasise that God’s Love for us is the primary love. Any love we offer to him is a response to his own love. So if I am to truly love God, I must first realise just how much He loves me. For many of us, our big problem is not our failure to love God, but our failure to recognise just how much he loves me.

This realisation involves embracing the shape of that love. Jesus coming to earth to take on himself the load of our guilt and shame is the clearest expression of God’s Love. Way beyond mere sentimentality, way beyond some impersonal principle. When I am tempted to doubt God’s love for me and thus stumble in my love for him, I am to look to Jesus.

The Christian faith has many and varied complexities. But perhaps it can be summed up in one simple sentence: God Loves me and Jesus proves it.

Blessings,

David

Peter 3:14

FEATURED

Alert 8/27/21 5:44.o3 pm THIS not, ‘JUST IN’

i, we are praying for these United States Citizens – the great ‘reset’ is a boondoggle method to gain socialism in guv’ment, in wazintoon, who are only playing into the communist’s hands; you think the debacle that comes to be in our war against afgun- estun is a sign? “Rumors of war…” seems to me that the stuff playing in reality ‘over there’ i hope what i describe as OUR nation’s unfolding future. Romans 12:12: Rejoice in hope and patient tribulation; continuing instant in prayer

Think:
Rejoice in hope;
patient in tribulation;
continue instantly to pray.

.5.
If you feel a lack of gratitude in your life and are afraid that may be, just
creating an inner part cut away, as is the casein honesty from our elected
“‘m able to say: it’s not my fault, we didn’t vote for buyhim now, time for all of you to
take action and learn how you can develop gratitude to live life. If you are
currently having a situation in your life, to think that it is impossible for
you to be thankful, then it’s time you learn how to cultivate gratitude.

1. Make a Gratitude List.
[TIME: 5-10 MINUTES. EFFORT: MEDIUM]
Make a list of five things you are grateful for right now.
You can include big things like the love of your family,
or the little things, like the person who opened a door
for you this morning. Focus on people instead of just
things. After finishing, read the list, and reflect on i,
allow yourself to feel good about the people who
share good things such as time with you.

2. Act(ion, not words) on YOUR Gratitude List.
[TIME: 1-5 MINUTES. EFFORT: LOW]
If there is something you can do to show your appreciation
for someone on your list, call him up or send him an email.
Or return the favor by doing a similarly kind thing to another.
Getting into the habit of showing appreciation will increase
feelings of gratitude.

3. Think of gratitude Quotes.
[TIME: 1-5 MINUTES. EFFORT: LOW]
Stick gratitude quotes up, on your computer, the fridge,
bathroom mirror—a place where you’re sure to see them.
You may feel a little corny at first, but these daily prompts
are handy gratitude cultivators. One Ann likes is, Let us rise
up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least
we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little at least we did
not get sick, and if we did get sick, at least we didn’t die, so let us
all be thankful. Another fave is from Albert Einstein: There are
only two ways to live your life. Nothing is a miracle. [idiotic]
Another way is to understand that everything is a miracle.Loading…Posted byGod gives us all a staggering proposal: “Don’t worry about anything,”Posted inUncategorizedLeave a commenton Alert 8/27/21 5:44.o3 pm THIS not, ‘JUST IN’EditAlert 8/27/21 5:44.o3 pm THIS not, ‘JUST IN’FEATURED

But even if you suffer for doing right, God will reward you for it. So do not be afraid, don’t worry.


want is devious term; be satisfied with our lot in our live’s

In God have I put my trust: I will not
be afraid what man can do unto me.

Psalm 56:11

Trials and troubles seem to overwhelm you.

They cannot do more than work My Will, and that

Will you have said is your Will.


Do you not see that you cannot be destroyed?  From now the

new Life is opening out before you. Yours to enter into the Kingdom

I have prepared for you.The sunlight of My Presence is on your paths. Trust;

Go forward unafraid.

My Grace is sufficient for all your needs.

Remember that the moment a thing seems
wrong to you, or a person’s actions to be not what
you think they should be, at that moment begins; our
obligation and responsibility to pray for those wrongs to
be righted, or that person to be different. Face our responsibility.
What is wrong in your country, its statesmen, its laws, its people?
Think out quietly, and make these matters your prayer matters. You will
see lives you never touch altered, laws made at your request, evils banished.

Yes,Live in a large sense. Live to serve and to save. You may never go beyond one
room, and yet you may become one of a most powerful forces for good in our country,
in the world.You may never see the mighty work you do, but I see it, evil sees it. Oh! it is
a glorious life, the life of one who saves. Fellow-workers together with me. See this more and more.

Love with Me, sharers of My Life.

August 22 – Gleams of Sunlight

But rejoice, inasmuch as ye
partakers of Christ’s sufferings;
that, when His Glory shall be revealed,
ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
1 Peter 4:13
Because you have both longed
to save My World I let you have that
training that shall fit you to save. Take your
pains and sufferings, difficulties and hardships
each day, both of you, to offer them up for a troubled
soul, or for some prayer specially needed to be answered.
So the beauty of each day will live on after trouble and distress,
difficulty and pain of the day have passed.Learn from My Life of the
suffering that saves others. So, you will sing in your pain. Across grayest
days there are the gleams of Sunlight.


our key to our faith is when we let go, let God.

The Rev. Gary Jones
St. Stephen’s, Richmond

Jan. 24, 2014-219th Council

I love our bishops’ exhortations that we can look

for the new thing the Holy Spirit is doing. And after this

morning’s presentations, I can see we don’t have to look far.

This church’s (St. Paul’s Church’s) Downtown Mission; St. Andrew’s

intentional community; the touching and deeply moving ministry at Buck

Mountain, Earlysville; the vitality at the Falls Church and the Church of the Resurrection;

the amazing GIRLs at St. George’s, Fredericksburg. The list is goes on and on.

But I’m convinced the Holy Spirit is active beyond church in ways that

should get our attention.

The cover of Time magazine this week was entitled

“The Mindful Revolution,” and it pictures a young woman

dressed in Lu Lu Lemon in a meditation pose. I’ve heard that

most popular time for yoga classes in many major cities is Sunday

morning. What is the Holy Spirit doing?

We live in a noisy, information saturated, multi

tasking world, people know something is wrong. I just

sometimes wonder why so many people seem to be looking

everywhere but the church for answers. When Oprah hosted that

web-based discussion on meditation with Eckhart Tolle a few years ago,

so many tried to log on that it ended up crashing Oprah’s website. The amazing

thing is that Eckhart Tolle is simply popularizing ideas and practices that have been

part of Christian tradition since the days of Desert Monasticism, Gregory of Nyssa

and Augustine of Hippo. Apparently, we’ve been distracted with other things.

It’s enough to make you believe that the Holy Spirit is going to reach out

and care for people with or without the church. And this is one reason

we started offering Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction classes at

St. Stephen’s Church. We are constantly over-subscribed, and in

other contemplative groups, yoga classes, Tai Chi, Centering

Prayer groups are popping up all the time. Some of those

people quickly make an association between Centering

Prayer offerings and the 14th Century Anglican work, 

The Cloud of Unknowing, which in all fact is the very

basis for Centering Prayer, maybe who cares if our

Holy Spirit is flying under the radar and getting to

people without the churchy labels? “A rose by any

other name would smell as sweet,” so we don’t about

that. It doesn’t surprise me that often the largest of our six

Sunday services is the quieter and more meditative Celtic service.

And with a single cantor instead of several paid choir members, it also

happens to be one of the least expensive of all our worship services.

The Holy Spirit seems to be moving, and in other interesting ways

at St. Stephen’s. One of our largest congregations is that weekly

Farmers Market, attended; people who may not want to have

anything to do with organized religion, but who are serious

about caring for creation and their own bodies. Lots of the

young people with strollers, lots of dogs, lively, foot-tapping

musicians, joggers meeting for morning coffee, … all manner of

folk coming together at a church. We like to think of it as a modern

village green; and it frequently occurs to people bless each other there

in our church parking lot. “God bless you,” I hear people say to each other as

I pass by incognito in my sunglasses and jeans, “I’ll be praying for you.” And some,

who apparently have no interest in institutional religion, who feel at home on the church

refuge with us, and ultimately join our worship or our community meals.

We don’t report such people as official members of St. Stephen’s to

the diocese or the larger Episcopal Church bureaucracy, but they

know they truly belong.A friend of mine who is rector of one of

the largest churches in the country recently told me that his

church’s thinking about opening a “Center for Spirituality”

in his city – a place off campus where people could go to

classes on healthy eating, and so on.But wait a minute,

I think my friend was simply acknowledging that many spiritual

seekers today are so put off by the agenda of Christian churches that

you have to start a whole new entity to attract them. I get it. But experience

at St. Stephen’s suggests that it’s not too late for us parish churches to become

greater compassion and engagement with God, the world, and themselves.

very Lest I give you the wrong impression, I should be emphasize that at

St. Stephen’s, we experience tremendous vitality in our ancient liturgies.

our of our Sunday services, strictly according to The Book of Common

Prayer, and Daily Morning Prayer every day of the week is sometimes

painfully rubrical. But our experience that if it is reverent, prayerful,

if we are truly spiritually present, God is nowhere more powerfully

alive than in our liturgical tradition.

This past summer, few posts by bloggers in their 20’s and 30’s

caught my attention. A young woman wrote of trouble she

she had had finding a church community. Saying she and
her husband wanted to find an anti-institutional church,

something that looked less like a church and more like

a hip coffee house. It led them to a worshiping community

full of people their age, a church called Praxis. “It was the kind

of church where the young, hip pastor hoisted an infant into his arms

and said with sincerity, ‘Dude, I baptize you in the name of the Father and

]community. I missed hymns, historicity, sacraments and aesthetics.

“[Ultimately,] we found an Episcopal church; where every Sunday

morning, watch clergy process up that aisle wearing vestments

and carrying a 6-foot cross. “We take communion from those

ordained priest who held the chalice of blood-red wine and

lays a hand blessing on our children. We sing the Lord’s

Prayer and recite from the Book of Common Prayer in

which not once … does the word ‘dude’ ever appear.”

In another post that went viral entitled, “Why the

Millenials are Leaving the Church,” 32-year-old

Rachel Held Evans wrote: “Many of us, myself

included, finding ourselves increasingly drawn

to high church traditions [like] the Episcopal

Church, etc., precisely because the ancient

forms of liturgy seem so unpretentious, so

unconcerned with being ‘cool,’ and so find

that refreshingly authentic. “What millennials

really want from the church is not a change in style

but a change in substance. You can’t hand us a latte and

then go about business as usual and expect us to stick around.

We’re not leaving the church because we don’t find the cool factor

there; we’re leaving the church because we don’t find Jesus there.”

I think we are finding something similar at St. Stephen’s Church here in

Richmond. We are trying to offer worship, education and ministry opportunities

that are deeply rooted in ancient tradition. Our evening Celtic service might sound like

an attempt to be hip, but the classical instrumentation and liturgy say otherwise. What it is

different is the quiet, the laying on of hands, the space to breathe deeply in an environment of

or chalice bearer or in any other leadership role in that service, you have to arrive one hour

before the service to prepare and pray silently with us, that you are centered in holiness

yourself and thus able to be with others, especially strangers, in the way God is present

to you. I do think the Holy Spirit is going to reach and care for people with or without a

church, but I think She’d rather do it with us. And we might need open new doors for

them to find us.

August 23 – The Summit

The Lord God is my strength,
and he will make my feet like hinds’
feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine
high places.
Habakkuk 3:1

See not the small trials and vexations of each hour of the day.
See the one purpose and plan to which all are leading. In climbing
a mountain you keep your eyes on each stony or difficult place, as you ascend, seeing only that, how weary and profitless your climb!

But if you think of each step as leading to the summit of achievement, from
which glories and beauties will open out before you, then your climb will
be so different.

August 24 – Sublime Heights


If it be so, our God whom we
serve is able to deliver us from 
the burning fiery furnace, and he
will deliver us out of thine hand, O King
Daniel 3:17

Our Lord, we know that
Thou art great and able to
deliver us. I Am your Deliverer.
Trust in Me absolutely. Know that
I will do the very best for you. Be ready
and willing for My Will to be done. Know that
with Me all things are possible. Cling joyfully in
that truth. Say many times, “All things are possible
with My Master, My Lord, My Friend
.” This truth, accept;
and firmly believed in, is the ladder up which a soul can climb
from the lowest of pits to the sublimest of heights.
