This is a tough network! First, I was accused of being a racist and now a sexist! I learned my RS-1 at the feet of Kay Lush and Charles Lingo so one could see why I am easily confused.

Hey you dear "guys",
This gal recalls we said that:

  RSI (and all our methods that emerged from that understanding of 
  TWLI) was branded on our eyelids;
  When we were deployed overseas, we needed to be able to teach 
  RSI in an instant, even as we passed another person, while "swinging 
  across the jungle on a vine." [I attribute this last image to Slicker];
  "Cutting off the right arm" was what might be required in our 
  time (the 20th C) to signify being the Church; and
   When all was finally at stake, we would, collectively, from every 
  point across the globe, move backwards toward Chicago, brandishing our 
  "swords," to protect our sacred place of Origin.
So, the notch in the ear and the toe tag (for one who has always worn ear 
baubles of some kind, and painted her toes) are not as 
memorable.  But any common glue is good glue, I say.
Peace and affection,

  Wow, and I thought it was the notch in the ear! 
  Can you return a notch?

It's the tag on the toe, the tag on the 
    toe, just look!

      Damn--Afraid I 

      was so sure we said on the underside of our eyelids!  At any rate, 
      that's where I had mine done.

Can you return a tattoo?  Or 
      exchange it?

        Bill, thanks for sending the story.  It is great.  Were 
        the questions helpful?
        For those of you who have not yet sent their stories, the link 
        On your question about glue, Bill -- someone sent out an email on 
        this . . . and I lost it . . .
        Gordon, Jack,
        Do you have the email with the picture of the tattoo of the 
        earthrise we are all engraving at the base of our spines??  
        Bill (see below) did not see that one.  I hurt my back over the 
        holidays and cannot twist around to take a close enough picture of mine 
        to pass the censors or post on my personal page.

              Like most of you I'm 
          frequently awakened to discover I've been thinking about the 
          material out of Junaluska, and there seems to be something missing. So 
          I share this reflection with you and, perhaps, you can set my mind at 
              Rev. Joe Buckles (from 
          Kansas) was responsible for my desire to join the Order. One day I 
          visited with Joe in Chicago when everything was run out of our 
          facilities at 5th City. He greeted me warmly and asked what I was 
          doing now. I launched into my best presentation about establishing the 
          Lake Ministries in the State of Kansas, and how deeply involved I 
          was in recreational ministries.
              Joe looked at me and replied, 
          "Um-m, too bad your work is so reduced. The world needs your spiritual 
          energy rather than just the state of Kansas." I laughed off his spiritual dart, but the truth was too 
          clear to be ignored. Shortly after that both 
          Beverly and I were on our way to the Ordered Life.
              What was it that held us 
          together? As I remember, one thing was the critique that we were 
          Nothings in history because we made paramount The Great Awakening to 
          live the humane life by creating structures for the Human Factor 
          in Human Development. The point being, we became the nothings 
          so that our secular-religious Christ could be 
              We lived on behalf of those 
          unable to, unwilling to, or in denial about, living the Awakened Life 
          against the day when all the earth would live the awakened 
          life  together.
              For this purpose we used the 
          traditions of the Christian Church as the theological glue to hold us 
          as one. This was grounded in the Daily Office and the Sunday 
          evening Common Meal.
              Did anything like this get 
          raised at Junaluska?
              Maybe I've been reading too 
          much of "Mother Teresa: Come Be My Light." Here is the living 
          embodiment of Transparent Doing done in the midnight of her soul 
          that experienced the entire absence of faith. She stood as the little 
          Dutch Girl with her finger in the dyke holding back the destructive 
          waters of social degradation against the day the Missionaries of 
          Charity would have the structures in place to do what history needed 
          them to do.
               Maybe this is 
          what our Order is experiencing since 1988? Certainly, this has 
          been a dark night of our corporate soul, but I've lost sight 
          of the transparent awakening event the world is waiting 
              The lesson I keep coming back 
          to is the glue that held her together, and that of her 
          sisters/brothers, and that kept her work going was the Eucharist. 
          If, and when, the Order again finds its voice, what will be the 
          Eucharist that sustains it?
              Bill Salmon
          Jim Wiegel here.  This is a good question.  I have not 
          read Mother Teresa's book.  Bill Bailey sent me a CD of their 
          advent service and that was interesting, and I found an old book that 
          had Chardin's Mass on the World in it, and that was even more 
          interesting in this regard. 
          I think we have not gotten further than to suggest putting 
          personal pages on the repository web site as a sign that you 
          acknowledge the declaration that was drafted. (That is, in addition to 
          the tattoo)
