 ZENSday: Free Meditation & Yoga!

Every Wednesday: Meditation at 5:15, Yoga at 6pm

Meditation, understood properly, is a process to create a meditative state. Once this meditative state is achieved, where there is serenity, calmness and peace we are able to manifest the intrinsic goodness of our heart. This expression of our heart’s goodness makes peace more dynamic and life-affirming, and, in its wake, brings unity and harmony to this world. Kamlesh Patel

Supporting the Mexican Wall exhibit is a new project on Immigration in Dayton and across the globe. The project points out that controversy over waves of immigrants is not a recent problem.

Immigrants after World War II faced a different fear: Accusations of being Communists and often were deported. Unlike the millions of European refugees who arrived in America during the Industrial Revolution, immigrants after the 1940’s tended to be from Latin American and Asia.

Decoding US-China Trade

Though arguably the most advanced economy in the world, the United States still uses centuries-old numbers to measure trade.  These antique numbers mangle understanding of the U.S.-China trade relationship, shrinking America’s true economic size and competitiveness, while swelling China’s.  Bad numbers give rise to bad policies that ultimately kill U.S. jobs and cede market share to China.  What other tools can the United States employ to counter China’s unfair trade practices?  There are several available, yet they remain mostly unused.

Ted Studebaker


Ted Studebaker


Click on the photo below to watch the video

This is the ABC News account of the story of Ted Studebaker, just after he was killed in Viet Nam in 1971. It was resurrected from partial film elements found in both the Brethren Historical Library and Archives in Elgin, IL and the Archives at Manchester College, North Manchester, IN and re-edited to replicate the original broadcast.

Ted Studebaker

Ted Studebaker (born September 29, 1945, outside of Dayton, Ohio) was a pacifist and conscientious objector who served as an agricultural worker during the Vietnam War and was executed by North Vietnam in 1971.

Studebaker was the 7th child of eight born on a farm in the small town of West Milton, Ohio. He was a devout member of the Church of the Brethren, and also excelled in sports and played football in high school as well as in college where he attended the small liberal arts school Manchester College in Indiana. He then attended Florida State University for two years pursuing his graduate degree in social work before he left for Vietnam. He also had a great love for music and was a guitarist.

While in Vietnam he volunteered with the Vietnam Christian service where he volunteered for two years working with a Montagnard hill tribe where he helped them with agricultural production. 

He was killed on April 26, 1971 by North Vietnamese when they first attacked the volunteers’ house with rockets and then invaded. The soldiers did not know who Studebaker was, they merely saw him as an American and therefore a threat and so he was executed. The lives of his wife and other volunteers were spared.
