Cockburn, Bruce. The Whole Night Sky. Alum: Charity of the NIght. Columbia, 1996. CD. Bruce Cockburn has been a deeply inspiring poet, prophet, and singer / song-writer for me over 30 years. When I feel distraught with no where left to turn, I find his songs, written often in the deepest turmoil human experience, give me hope in the midst of despair, love in the midst of hate, acceptance in the midst of rejection, justice in the midst of oppression. As Canada’s Goodwill Ambassador, many of his songs are written in war torn countries, as he enters in to the pain and agony of the victims of war.  Cockburn has written more than 300 songs on thirty albums over a career spanning nearly 50 years.

Why I Write

Keller, Helen Adams.  (June 27, 1880 – June 1, 1968) was an American author, political activist, and lecturer. She was the first deaf-blind person to earn a bachelor of arts degree. The story of how Keller’s teacher, Anne Sullivan, broke through the isolation imposed by a near complete lack of language, allowing the girl to blossom as she learned to communicate, has become widely known through the dramatic depictions of the play and film The Miracle Worker.

Mother Teresa, known in the Catholic Church as Saint Teresa of Calcutta (26 August 1910 – 5 September 1997), was an Albanian-Indian Roman Catholic nun and missionary. After living in Macedonia for eighteen years she moved to Ireland and then to India, where she lived for most of her life. In 1950 Teresa founded the Missionaries of Charity, a Roman Catholic religious congregation which had over 4,500 sisters and was active in 133 countries in 2012. The congregation manages homes for people dying of HIV/AIDS, leprosy and tuberculosis; soup kitchens; dispensaries and mobile clinics; children’s- and family-counselling programmes; orphanages, and schools. Members, who take vows of chastity, poverty, and obedience, also profess a fourth vow: to give “wholehearted free service to the poorest of the poor”.  Wikipedia.

Quakers (or Friends) are members of a historically Christian group of religious movements generally known as the Religious Society of Friends.[2][3] Members of the various Quaker movements are all generally united in a belief in the ability of each human being to experientially access “that of God in every person,” and therefore they profess the priesthood of all believers,[4][5] a doctrine derived from the First Epistle of Peter. They include those with evangelical, holiness, liberal, and traditional Quaker understandings of Christianity. To differing extents, the different movements that make up the Religious Society of Friends/Friends Church avoid creeds and hierarchical structures. Wikipedia.
