Justice, Peace & God, A Minister’s Personal Odyssey, Barbara Mills

1 Justice, Peace & God, A Minister’s Personal Odyssey
Barbara Mills
2006, 5½x8½, paper, index, 494 pp, Heritage Books
Frank Thompson’s story is about a number of journeys that coalesce around the belief that God created his life for a purpose. And, with a great grandfather who was part of the Lewis and Clark expedition, grandparents who were homestead pioneers in Arizona, and his own rugged childhood on a western ranch, perhaps it was inevitable that he would see his challenge to live out God’s purpose as a struggle to make a difference, and equally important, the need to inspire others to struggle with him to bring tolerance, justice and peace to the world. Frank Thompson’s story, with its ups and downs, unfolds as he crisscrosses the nation from Arizona to California to New England to Oklahoma and overseas. His powerful sermons, delivered in a deep resonant voice, connected the Bible’s teachings to current-day happenings of significance; his anti-World War II sermons could be preached today with only a word changed here, a country’s name there. Himself a life-long pacifist, he encouraged young men to resist the draft and become conscientious objectors. He deglamorized that war and gave another perspective to the propaganda that surrounded his congregation in films, newscasts and elsewhere. He invited Mennonites, who were against all war, to speak at Sunday services; and a Japanese-American college student who told of her family’s experiences—suddenly uprooted from homes and jobs in California and thrust into one of this nation’s now-infamous wartime concentration camps. During the course of his cross country journeys, Frank graduated from Andover-Newton Theological Seminary in Massachusetts; had a personal encounter with Rhode Island’s fierce 1938 hurricane (which is recounted in his own words); was president of Bacone Indian College in Oklahoma; Vice President of Development at his alma mater, Redlands University in California (where he had debated Richard Nixon when both were college students); headed the western offices of the United World Federalists; and spent a year in Laos seeking to build cultural ties with its people. Despite growing doubts near the end of his life, that the answer to “one world united in peace” lay within the religious community, there is little doubt that Frank Thompson influenced many lives and passed on his abiding concern for the underdog, be he poor or of another race or culture. Extracts from a number of his sermons are included. Numerous illustrations and an index to full names, places and subjects add to the value of this work.

2 CD: Ruth and Levi, Volumes 1-4
Clayton L. Johnson
2006, CD, Graphic Images, Searchable, Adobe Acrobat, v6, PC and Mac, 1298 pp, Heritage Books
This extensive family history and genealogy starts with the author’s parents, Ruth Christine Moe (1901-1975) and Levi Reuben Johnson (1893-1976), and extends backwards to identify as many of their ancestors on all family lines as possible.

The first volume of this four-volume set, Volume One, The Search for Ancestors: Introduction and Background to My Big Project plus Direct Descendants and Dozens of Cousins, is devoted to introductory and background material. The next three volumes reflect the family heritage from the three areas of Scandinavia: Volume Two, Grandma Josie’s Hardanger Heritage: Tracing the Western Norway Heritage of Ruth’s Mother; Volume Three, Hedmark Heritage of Grandpa Chris: Tracing the Eastern Norway Heritage of Ruth’s Father; and Volume Four, Family Lineages of Tiliander and Catherine in Skåne: Tracing the Ancestry of Levi’s Parents from Southern Sweden. These volumes identify more than a thousand direct ancestors and their children going back over several centuries. Maps, family charts and numerous photographs enhance the text.
