Glendora Vegeterian Club

If you dial the  if you dial the Christian Science Sentinel Watch, the message will help you with cheer, happiness, fulfillment and love. Last week Helene Douglas told about a Viet Nam veteran who believed in killing. As part of his class, he brought chickens to show his students how to kill them in the most cruel way. Helene said to herself that this was not for her, and she stepped aside. In a moment or two, a second person stepped aside with her. Then came another, and finally everybody stepped aside. After the class, the Viet Nam Green Beret asked Helene if she would take a walk with him. He said he had noticed that she had stepped aside, that he had thought about it and decided that he was wrong to do the killing and would never do it again. This is a lesson in veganism. Veganism is kindness. You do not hurt anybody. As the Bible says, “Be ye blameless and harmless, as a child of God, without rebuke.”

Try Morning Star Farms vegetarian cheeseburgers. As a vegan you can have plenty of plant based cheese choices, like VitaLite, Daiya, Chao and VioLife.


1. An Ancient Greek took his pants to a tailor and said, “Eumenides?” The tailor said, “Euripides?” 

2. The teacher asked the class what they knew about toadstools. A little girl said, “Toadstools grow in damp places; that is why they they are shaped like umbrellas.”

3. The teacher asked the same girl, “What is an octopus?” The girl replied, “An eight sided cat.”

4. The minister asked, “What is an epistle?” The confirmant answered, “An epistle is the wife of an apostle.”

5. Mommy, you know that vase that has been handed down from generation to generation? Well, this generation dropped it.
