Tom Chaney: What we need is here

Of Writers And Their Books: "What We Need Is Here." Tom reviews An American Gospel, Erik Reece's attempt to reconcile doing good on earth with escaping to heaven. This column first appeared 31 May 2009.
The next earlier Tom Chaney column: So Open to Infinity

By Tom Chaney

"What We Need Is Here"
--Wendell Berry


Leo Tolstoy observed that one cannot believe in both the Sermon on the Mount and the Nicene Creed. The Sermon on the Mount begins with the beatitudes and Jesus charges his audience to "love their enemies, turn the other cheek, give to those who beg, and avoid hypocritical judgments." The Creed is an assertion of the need to escape the world through sacrifice.

Thus Erik Reece begins his new book, An American Gospel: On Family, History and the Kingdom of God, [Riverhead Books, 2009] citing Tolstoy's essay "the Kingdom of God is Within You."

Chuck Hinman: IJMA. Weaning A Baby Calf Off Its Mother

Chuck Hinman: Weaning A Baby Calf Off Its Mother. Chuck tells of fresh cows (recently calved cows) and of teaching the calves to drink from a bucket.

By Chuck Hinman

Weaning A Baby Calf Off Its Mother

I can hear you saying "Doing What to a What?"

In writing my memories recently, I remembered, as a little kid growing up on a Nebraska farm, weaning baby calves of dependence on the mother cow for food. A calf would still be nursing its mother as a teenager if you didn't wean it.

Poetry by Robert Stone: Facades to cope

Facades to cope - a sonnet for a twenty-ninth birthday
Whenever wondering why all went wrong,
Everything enters heart and mind unsorted,
Nothing denied accepts defeat for long
Distance is detail but with truth aborted.

Easily entertaining tears that still pain,
Laughing and loving but relieving naught,
Longing and living with unwanted gain,
Constantly changing but with change unsought.

Only the ordinary shelters hope,
Merely remembering brings back the horror,
Pleasant and plentiful facades to cope,
Each of the elements hiding a sorrow.

Records are reckless random rough reminders
Yielding to yearnings for soothing light blinders.
- Robert Stone, 29 May 2014
