POSITRACTION: Gibbons, Patti (MC1986) shares a Lenten Prayer

Keeping a Holy Lent
by patti

Years ago, when my family and I lived in the Pacific Northwest, we had the opportunity to visit Mount St. Helens. You may know that mountain is a volcano that erupted in deadly, spectacular fashion in May, 1980.

Though I knew about the volcanic eruption's devastating effect on the mountain, its wildlife, and the people who lived within the miles and miles of landscape which surrounded Mount St. Helens, the area had a much more profound impact on me spiritually than I anticipated.

I expected to see confirmed the details I already knew. I expected to hear stories of destruction, of wasted beauty, of death. I did.

As we drove up the mountain, there was a clear line after which there was little left. The forest, the wildlife, the lush greenery that is omnipresent elsewhere in the breath-taking Cascade Mountains, was absent. Though it had been many years since the eruption, it left an indelible mark on the landscape. It was a solemn realization, but it was part of the natural order. It felt like a holy place.

Today, we enter the season of Lent. One of my high school student friends asked me on Facebook yesterday what "Lent" was:

Lent is a season of the traditional church year. It is a 40 day period of time beginning tomorrow (Ash Wednesday) and continuing until Easter - it doesn't include Sundays because they are always a day to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. From ancient times, people have taken the practice of giving up (sacrificing, fasting) something(s) in order to more clearly focus on what God has done for us and prepare our hearts to celebrate Easter with new commitment and understanding.

Sometimes people will fast from (give up) a particular food, or something that consumes their time (like Facebook, TV or other screen time). Usually, I have preferred to take up a new devotional practice, read a more difficult devotional or theological book, or develop a new habit of prayer. Whatever is chosen, it ought not be "easy" -- it should be something that takes attention and discipline, so that we know we need God's help to accomplish it. It's a reminder that we didn't earn salvation ourselves, but it required God.

A quick reply, to be sure. The season calls us to particular devotion, above and beyond the regular habits, and to set aside some of the comforts of our lives through prayer, fasting, and study, in order to more deeply understand what our salvation cost -- Jesus' life. We intentionally revisit the story of "before" to more deeply understand the story of "after."

So what does this have to do with the stunning destruction of the eruption of Mount St. Helens?

As the literal fire and molten rock of the mountain laid waste to what had accumulated for miles around it, Lent is a season holding an invitation for the spiritual fire of the Holy Spirit to lay waste to the accumulation of our lives. Lent is a season to shed "it's about me" and re-focus on "it's about Jesus."

During our tour of Mount St. Helens, the Park Service officer who led our group told us about something remarkable. Spirit Lake, which had been boiled to death by the molten flow, had recently been found to have microscopic life. The surrounding forest land, which had been dense and lush but left in ashes feet deep, was sprouting new growth. Re-creation was underway.

My Lenten prayer? Lord, let re-creation be underway.

I posted this message to let anyone know, who has your address from a third party, that it's changing. That's why I push folks, especially youngsters, to get their own domain name. Like "reinke.cc". Best money I ever spent. And, gmail does a lot of the work behind the scenes on some of the names, but I'm in control. FYI! Funny how this goes in spurts, big day one day and then a drought. ]

JEMAIL: McFadden, Michael J. [MC1973] takes issue with Stebbins, Donald M. (MC1961)

I'd like to respond to the note by Donald M. Stebbins (MC1961) about plastic in the ocean. Don, you make a good point about the problem of plastic pollution, but I don't think it's really correct to blame the washing machine itself. The blame would more properly lie with clothing manufacturers using the plastics in clothing (which would leach microfilaments into the water even with ordinary vigorous scrubbing on a washboard... maybe even MORE so!) A secondary, but still quite strong, blame could be attached to the machine manufacturers and government regulators for not requiring better filters as environmental controls. (I may share some of Jasper John's "l"ibertarianism, but reasonable environmental standards are, I believe, a reasonable role for our government to step into.)

With proper filters, washing machines could well be our savior. And, as noted above about the washboard scrubbing, it's possible that even with current filters they've ALREADY been our savior!

PRAYERSREQUESTED: David has been diagnosed with an incurable disease

Good Evening All,

I ask for your prayers for a good man that I met today. David has been diagnosed with an incurable disease that requires treatments that cost $25,000 and are a monthly/weekly cost. Today he was informed that he will be losing his job as of 2/28/13 after 17 years of service without a mark. I had conversation with one of the Managers of David's place of business. This man shared his feelings and we discussed possibilities. From personal and business ethics perspectives, the Manager is sympathetic to David's plight. Even from a court of public opinion perspective (this Manager may use this as a wedge with more Senior Management) to see what can be done for David who is dealing with his circumstances very well although he feels as if he has been kicked in the stomach as he puts it. If the Disease does not kill David, it will probably leave him unmarketable but we shall see. I ask for your prayers for David and his family and as we pray that this illness can be contained if not cured, please pray that this good man's Managers are moved to help him further. It is a very difficult situation. Thank you, God Bless.

JEMAIL: Stebbins, Donald M. (MC1961) advocates for "the environment"

Dear Jasper John,

I find it difficult if not impossible to believe that anyone growing up in North Jersey
during the 1950's would oppose government action to clean up the environment.
I remember well the horrible smells, smog, and gas mask requiring atmosphere
encountered when traveling on the NJ Turnpike and other roads in the area, Those
conditions were the product of the unregulated "free enterprise" system you love
so much and would inflict on the rest of us. Look up the history of this problem
and you will find that strong government action saved the day.

As far as filters for plastic fibers in washing machines are concerned I have found
the subject quite complicated as will have to defer a response. A quick Google search did not uncover
an answer as to which is the best way to go.

Your mention of Whirlpool sent me in another direction leading to my questioning of
your claim that companies are apt to act to the benefit of consumers. A couple of years
ago my washing machine ( apparently built by Whirlpool although it had a different name
on it) suddenly stopped working, I called a local appliance repair company who found that
the problem was a defective temperature control switch. The machine started working again
but the technician said the switch would probably fail again shortly, He said he would
install the switch if he could find one (or I could find one). The problem I faced then is
that the company had stopped making the part ( worth about 2 dollars) and none were available
anywhere on the internet or elsewhere. Sure enough the switch failed in about two weeks
and I thought I was faced with forking out 500 dollars for a new machine for want of a two
dollar switch. But my Manhattan education led me to the old solution of hitting the machine
with my hand and it has worked ever since. The fact remains however that companies
should be required to maintain parts for the machines they make until they are not being used.
I'm sure that Whirlpool could have made enough parts but decided not to on the basis of costs
and to heck with the consumer. Government laws requiring the stockpiling of parts for
machines should be passed. That would save consumers a lot of money and trouble.

Sincerely yours.

Donald M Stebbins

What makes you describe what we have as "unregulated free enterprise"? New Jersey is know for its Gooferment corruption. Essex, Hudson, and such are well known for how much you can get away with! I'd suggest that our problems are all caused by the Gooferment! They are the biggest single polluter as well as the biggest enabler!

A law requiring inventory might sound good, but you'e imposing a cost on someone that you don't want to bear yourself. By what right do you or your Gooferment transfer that cost from you to others. A company is nothing but an illusion that represents a cooperative effort of a lot of people. So you make a law that imposes your will on others. You couldn't do it alone so how can your agent, the Gooferment, do what you're not able to?

I attended Manhattan College for 5 years where I received my M.S. and B.S. in Chemical Engineering. There I became aware of an engineer's responsibility to evaluate processes to ensure that it operates efficiently and effectively, while always looking for sources of optimization and being mindful of regulatory safety practices and ethical decision making. Through various course work and independent research, I have applied many concepts and technical skills to my work here at Noblis. My work in energy and environmental remediation technology is very exciting, and it has always been something that I wanted to pursue. I am very interested in discovering and implementing new technologies and methods that assist in the on-going search for cleaner, more efficient, sustainable energy.

[JR: Any fat old white guy injineer's wistful for classes with an accent should spend 60 minutes reliving it. Five was all I needed! "No questions? Good that's what I like to hear …" LAFF! I was usually so confused (or, hungover) I couldn't form a question. Oh well, water under the fallen down bridge. (Students who had Zia will understand. But, as in life, "no partial credit"!). Argh!]

JNEWS: Williams, Harry Roger III [MC1970] resigned as director of the Thomas Crane Public Library in Quincy

Harry Williams: why I resigned as Crane Library director
By Sue Scheible

Harry Williams III has resigned as director of the Thomas Crane Public Library in Quincy. It is time to smell the roses.

"I have been working since I was 14, and in the library profession for 41 years, but I realized there are other ways to live," Williams says in the winter issue of Happenings, the newsletter of the Friends of the library.

His resignation was effective at the end of January.

Williams was the 12th library director.

He said he had expected to be in his position for many years, but recent experiences "shook up my feelings and thinking."

One was a visit to a dear friend who was dying. "No more taking for granted a limitless supply of time to get around to unfilled dreams and ambitions," Williams said in the newletter.

The other event was spending a week in Arkansas with his wife attending family reunions and experiencing life at a more leisurely pace.

One of the most satisfying parts of his position in Quincy had been collaborating with other community leaders and organizations, he said. He included Quincy High School and Quincy College, the Wollaston Garden Club, the Quincy Police Department and Friends of the Library, the Quincy Historical Society and Quincy Rotary Club.

Any question why we should ALL be against the death penalty?

No eraser.

No way to "un-execute" someone!

Seems so obvious to the fat old white guy injineer.
