There is a culture in the USA that says problems are always from outwith. Americans can do no wrong. I can almost hear a sigh of relief, "thank goodness the bombers were foreign, and Muslims!". And yet, when yet another Columbine High School event occurs as did a few weeks back, the reaction is, don't look at us, it's not our fault, it's not guns that kill, even though that is what they are designed to do. I think the Bible has an analogy about a plank and an eye.

A couple of numbers to juggle with.

September 11th, 2,996 murdered.

Murders by firearms in USA in one year (2010), 8,306.

And the USA went to war over the 2,996 leaving an estimated further 112,043 dead.

Mucky Paws

  • Mucky Paws
    Mucky Paws is a variety of bit of liturgy that have been used in New Kilpatrick. There are wee prayers, bigger prayers, creative moments, meditative sequences, actions, thoughts, reflection etc. It just a collection of whatever was possible in a particular moment and suited our culture here. That doesn't mean it will suit anywhere else but the idea might if adapted and edited to suit a different place and community. So help yourself to Mucky Paws items. they are all copyright but freely available to be adapted to suit your own place and people. A monthly digest of many of the items is available if you wish to subscribe. Just email me and you'll get about 10 pages of things towards the end of each month (which means you'll need to keep them for three years before they are useful again!)
