Phyllis Tickle and Joanna Macy? Anybody?
I just finished Tickle’s book, and it’s as good as people said it was. A Friend at SF Meeting was able to loan me Macy’s 1998 book, Coming Back to Life: Practices to Reconnect Our Lives, Our World, co-written by Molly Young Brown. I'm just starting it, and it seems relevant for me on several levels.
I think these two women are prophetic voices for our times, coming from different backgrounds, both observing and commenting on the same mega-shift as Brian McLaren, etc. I’d like to talk to anyone who’s read both authors and would be willing to compare and contrast with me.
In exchange, I’ll offer two end-of-year gifts to readers:
One is a link to an opportunity to win a trip to the Obama inauguration next month by submitting your commitment to change in 2009. It’s offered by the Case Foundation.
Second is a recipe with a fine Quaker pedigree. I first ate these cinnamon-sugared pecans at a couple of SF Meeting events. The woman who made them said she got the recipe from a long-time Friend from another meeting who always brings them to AVP gatherings. It also appeared in the December issue of the SF Meeting newsletter.
Can be any kind of nuts, but pecans are good. Makes one pound.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Lightly beat one egg white. In a medium sized bowl, mix with one pound nuts until coated. In a small bowl, stir together 1 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, then stir mixture into nuts until evenly coated. Spread on a baking sheet. Bake for a total of 20-30 minutes, stirring at decreasing intervals (after 10 minutes, 8 min, 5 min, 3 min, etc.) During the first ten minutes or so, the egg white will puff a little. Watch them carefully near the end and take out when they are lightly browned.
Happy New Year!
