Posted Today--Godparents, Peace Tribe: Both on Facebook

The sequence of Peace Tribe building is the sequence of the national revolutions of the West in Gardner, Chapter 5, 'Beyond Belief'. Compare Aristotle's 5 causes?

First, recognize your imperative. The most important thing you can do at which you would be most difficult to replace, lifetime.

Luther: Freedom of conscience. CHH has this: Enjoy Comprehensive Beauty. It's somewhat based on this:

"The history of the human race is written on a single theme: How does love become stronger than death? The composition is recomposed in each generation by those whose love overcomes murdering or dying. So history becomes a great song, Augustine's Carmen Humanum. As often as the lines rhyme, love has once again become stronger than death. This rhyming, this connecting, is men's function on earth. But that this is our function we have only known since the birth of Christ." - Sociology II, p. 759

 On 'Build A Peace Tribe, A How-To Manual' I posted the sequence of building a Peace Tribe: Imperative, Subjective, Narrative, and Objective out to Planetary Service. (Rosenstock-Huessy, best explained in a short way in Gardner's 'Beyond Belief,' Chapter 5. Clinton Gardner how this occurred in the national revolutions of the West)

The Imperative of 'Godparents for Eldsters Compassion Ministry' is comprised of The Fifth Word ('Honor your father and mother...'), James 1:27, and Matthew 25.

More on Subjective, Narrative, and Objective later.

I hope this works. I'm trying to link to 'For' on 'ChuckHartmanHistoryConductor' blog.
This gives some background, and more links.

Also about 'Peace Garden'. In Portland, OR, people pay to have a small garden tended by unemployed and youth. Someone coordinates it.  This is a way to get gardens going, without giving up 'conspicuous consumption'. 

PS: I like the acronym 'BAPT' for Build A Peace Tribe
