GREETINGS & NEWS

“Plenty sits still.  Hunger is a wanderer.” 

ZULU PROVERB

 

Greetings and welcome to PANTHER NEWSLETTER ISSUE 10

A big shout goes out to our new readers here in the UK, Jamaica and the USA; you know the drill, ‘Welcome aboard; rock and come in.’

This month we have more or less our usual suspects; a unique SPECIAL GUEST, a special FEATURED POEM; the FEATURED ARTICLE and everybody’s favourite THE CULTURE CORNER.   Also this month check out PETRIE’S MUSICAL COA-COA BASKET dedicated to him; his favourite tunes from the vaults of the COUNT NYAH record box. 

So less chat, more reading; enjoy PANTHER NEWSLETTER: ISSUE 10

A ‘T’ SHIRT NOT TO BUY

This shirt and a bumper sticker version have been circulating the past few months.  The scripture on the T-Shirt reads: Psalms 109:8-10. When you look in the Bible it reads: ‘Let his days be few and let another take his office, Let his children be fatherless, And his wife a widow.  Let his children continually be vagabonds, and beg; Let them seek their bread also from their desolate places.’

So show them that you just don’t buy and wear ANYTHING!  And that you do know what the word of God says.  Click on the ‘T’ Shirt image here…

An interesting Newsletter was posted my way this month called Yes Cuba; the official newsletter of Jamaican Youth and Elders in Solidarity with Cuba .  A fascinating read.
