"You have to work hard to offend Christians. By nature, Christians are the most forgiving, understanding, and thoughtful group of people I've ever dealt with. They never assume the worst. They appreciate the importance of having different perspectives. They're slow to anger, quick to forgive, and almost never make rash judgments or act in anything less than a spirit of total love . . . No, wait--I'm thinking of Labrador retrievers!" David Learn, 1998

POEMS: More poems

Off our bedroom
a balcony.
Off our balcony
a tree.
In the tree
a nest.
In the nest
a hummingbird.

When the radiation comes
we can go inside
and seal the windows--
but what about her?

   --Jessica Reynolds Renshaw

I saw the magician
hold out his hat
tear a newspaper into it
smash his watch into it
break a bottle into it
crack an egg into it
stir it with his wand
reach in 
              and produce
                                   a dove.
May a wand wave over Sendai.
                 --Ted Reynolds
