The following article, written John Baltzer (prior to marriage and taking the name of Kintree), was published in the October 1988 issue of "A Plea for Sanity," the monthly newsletter of the St. Louis chapter of Clergy and Laity Concerned.More than twenty people gathered at the Salvation Army office at noon, October 11 for the presentation and discussion, "From the Information Age to the Age of Peace." Some brought their own lunch, and some came without food. By a show of hands we learned that some who had no food did want to eat. We had a maldistribution of resources.
By the way, the price/performance of computers has improved by a factor of tens of thousands in the 28 years since this article was written.
We love because God first loved us. That is trying to say something which goes beyond our ability express in words. It has also been said that love isn't taught, it's caught. That's something like "caring is sharing."
