audience through its publications For many years Pendle Hill has published pamphlets and books that explore in depth the perspectives embodied in the community A sampling of Pendle Hill Pamphlets illustrates the range of topics Cooperation and Coercion as Methods of Social Change by Vincent Nicholson 1 1934 The Value of Voluntary Simplicity by Richard Gregg 4 1936 Reality of the Spiritual World by Thomas Kelly 21 1942 Christianity and Civilisation by Arnold Toynbee 39 1947 The Use of Silence by Geoffrey Hoyland 83 1955 The Way of Man According to the Teachings of Hasidism by Martin Buber 106 1960 Mysticism and the Experience of Love by Howard Thurman 115 1965 Nonviolent Action How It Works by George Lakey 129 1963 On Being Present Where You Are by Douglas Steere 151 1967 Quaker Worship and Techniques of Meditation 195 1974 by Scot Crom 195 1974 Nurturing Contemplation Carol Murphy 251 1983 A Zen Buddhist Encounters Quakerism by Teruyasu Tamura 302 1992 A Plea for the Poor by John Woolman 357 2001 A Quaker in the Zendo by Steve Smith 370 2004 Living from the Center Mindfulness Meditation and Centering for Friends by Valerie Brown 407 2010 Meditation Worship and Social Action It is commonly supposed that in order to practice meditation and contemplation one must give up efforts to change society and retreat into a private space The above pamphlet titles contradict this supposition Cultivation of a deeper spiritual life whether through prayer meditation contemplation or other spiritual discipline can energize one s commitment to service and facilitate more effective action in society Through practicing meditation contemplation or silent Quaker worship we cultivate greater compassion and more harmony with others We become less attached to wealth and less likely to pursue purely private satisfaction and material excess Thus religious communities provide essential teachings to counter the false values of society These teachings speak to a deep hunger in everyone for we all carry within ourselves an intimation of the deepest values an inchoate awareness of what matters most After all where is true inner peace to be found Not through mindless pursuit of power fame and material gratification no matter how seductive these may appear The deepest needs are for the highest things Writing on behalf of the Catholic tradition the great Christian theologian St Augustine 354 430 C E declared Our hearts are restless till they rest in Thee vii Likewise the peace and gladness that can be found in Buddhist practice speak to the deepest longings of our hearts Inspired scriptures from the world s great religious traditions convey similar messages My religious tradition of Quakerism also endorses this view holding that the problems being addressed in this Forum the environmental crisis economic injustice decline in morality the loss of spirituality religious conflicts wars and so on all stem from the same cause unrestrained pursuit of self centered goals viii In particular the environmental crisis global warming destruction of rain forests toxic poisoning of the air water and ocean depletion of fish stock desertification accelerating extinction of countless species and much more these disasters in our natural world spring from attachments of the human ego and its endless thirst for more more more They reflect a lack of compassion or love for humans for non human life for the earth itself If our motives remain small and self serving all initiatives to resolve the problems will fail To promote peace and justice harmony and healing we must rise

    Kilpack a Quaker friend and director of studies at Pendle Hill called Eichenberg with the exciting news that Day was to be part of a small symposium on religious publishing Eichenberg was invited and was seated at the roundtable between Kilpack and Day While Eichenberg was familiar with Day s paper and her Catholic radicalism and peace efforts he was overwhelmed by her presence and determination She looked at me wistfully out of her slanted eyes braids forming a halo around her head She was clearly made of the stuff of saints and martyrs although no one realized it then You couldn t possibly refuse her anything without feeling ashamed of yourself She must have known of my work through Dostoevsky whom we both revered She loved art I loved her faith and courage Would you be willing to do some work for our paper she asked with her bewitching smile I felt I had been knighted and hooked Did she know that I was not a Catholic just a recently convinced Friend Yes she knew and that didn t bother her a bit Eichenberg and Day had much in common There was the appreciation for music love of the great Russian authors Tolstoy and Dostoevsky a reverence for peacemakers like Jesus St Francis and Gandhi a social conscience that burst forth in action and art and an ardent dream that the world was capable of being reformed by compassion and peace Day asked Eichenberg for something emotional some thing that would touch people through images as she was trying to do through words Day realized that many of her readers like the coal mine workers in West Virginia could not read but could understand through pictures and their allure This is where Eichenberg and Day created a powerful alliance Word and image were combined deliberately to promote the tenets of the Catholic Worker movement and to satisfy the conscience cravings of Eichenberg the Friend Read more of Daprile s article here Fritz Eichenberg wrote about the influences on his life and art in his Pendle Hill pamphlet Artist on the Witness Stand He said I felt honored that Dorothy Day wanted my work on the pages of The Catholic Worker a true witness that Art and Faith can go together In an earlier Pendle Hill pamphlet Art and Faith published in 1952 Eichenberg expressed his hope as an artist The child the poet the fool and the saint how close they are together in their longing for God The artist is among them and may be allowed to believe that men still prefer beauty to ugliness and deception blooming meadows to scorched earth a Bach chorale to the screech of battle For Fritz Eichenberg art was irrevocably linked to spirituality and conscience Of the artist s life as he knew it he wrote in Artist on the Witness Stand To remain sensitive to the human problems surrounding us we will have to descend from our Ivory Towers into the
