Lions Lambs Eagles Doves

This blog-title happened because I remembered a greeting card (I think) with a quote from Weston Priory about the lion lying down with the lamb. Thinking it might be from a Weston Priory song, I tried doing an internet search, but found nothing. Most likely it's on a Christmas card I've saved, so when I find the card I'll amend this blog with the exact passage.

Well there's a rose in a fisted glove
And the eagle flies with the dove

~Stephen Stills~

From the album Absolutely: ABC—"One Better World"

One better world
One better world
One better world

Someway – Somehow – Some place – Somewhere
Let the lion lie down with the lamb
Someway – Somehow – Some place – Somewhere
Don't use the color of the skin to judge a man

~Martin Fry and Mark White~

On the news this past Monday, the Rt. Rev. Katherine Jefferts Schori, the Episcopal Church's Presiding Bishop-Elect essentially said she could form a relationship with just about anyone through dialogue and conversation. But that's what I'd always imagined about myself, and it had happened close to countless times—but what about now? Oh, I know, "overdeveloped skills in reconciliation, accommodation and peacemaking," but the world would have no social workers, pastors, therapists, teachers or much of anyone else in that kind of direct service profession were some of us not somewhat codependent! Before writing codependent I hesitated and came close to saying "people-addicted," but instead I consulted Microsoft Word's synonym list and found mutually dependent, mutually inter-reliant and mutually supporting. Those words sound just fine to me!
