Outside, sniper fire crackled over the mosque-dotted hills to the east and military FA50 fighter jets thundered overhead. Wedding or no, the porridge was nourishing, and Villarosa was happy: Villarosa, a teacher in Marawi, was handing out wedding invitations when black-clad fighters of what the locals call Grupo ISIS swarmed the streets.

The Fall Pendle Hill focused on life in prison [The September retreat at Pendle Hill focused on how to create sacred spaces in the prison system.
Our Fellow Correspondent, Kelli Felice provided this lively account. It is set in the quaint town of Wallingofrd, PA. It resembles a tiny campus with separate houses for food mmmmlodging, worship, classes, library, and art.
We began our weekend at 6pm on Friday at Brinton House and immediately felt at home. We were greeted by Roothbert Board member Jim Rosengarten, coordinator of the Fall retreat, and walked over to the Main House for possibly the best pot roast dinner ever! After dinner and beginning to get to know our fellow Roothbert recipients and hosts, Jim Rosengarten and Jane Century, Roothbert VP for Fellowship, we returned to our meetinghouse to meet our speakers and go over our weekend agenda.
After a warm welcome from our Pendle Hill contact, Emma, we played the interview game. We paired up and interviewed one another before introducing them to the rest of the group.
I can honestly say I spent the weekend with impeccable company: The Roothbert Fund made no mistakes in their selection! But, enough about us! Laura told us how she came to work in the prison system and about her expertise in working with women inmates and their children.
Phyllis gave us a graphic description of what it is like to be inside a prison by using our 5 senses and explained the differences between jails vs. However, this was only a small taste of what was to come.
But, we all thanked her when we saw that we would not want to miss a breakfast a Pendle Hill. Our morning session began with a video presented by Laura of women she has worked with in prison. The women were bearing their souls about their children, how they had lost them, their plans for getting them back, their drug addictions and life inside the prison walls.
Unfortunately there is only one Laura and an insurmountable number of inmates who need services like hers. We were all left with the question of how these inmates could possibly create a sacred place for themselves within the prison walls?
Laura answered all our questions and let us know that there is hope for inmates who ask for it and make the most of their prison time. The recurring theme of the weekend became: Phyllis dispelled the idea that because inmates have wronged society they should be allowed to suffer.
More importantly, they have made a mistake, but that does not make them less of a person or give them the right to endure more pain then you or I. Phyllis sees to it and believe me she has her ways of making sure every inmate receives their basic human rights and above all else lets them know that they are not alone.
She creates programs and travels to prisons all over the country to educate them on how we can better our corrupt justice system. Now back to the food! There are permanent residents of Pendle Hill and students of all ages who come for year or two of study called sojourners.
They have come to Pendle Hill for different reasons, but all pay a small fee for lodging in exchange for different services. Again the mystery brownies were alluded to, but never appeared. We now had some free time.
Some fellows went on a tour of the Pendle Hill grounds including beautiful fish filled ponds, rare trees, and serene wooded areas.
Some went running or into town to investigate. Some continued to get to know each other and discuss the prison topic as well as many others.Philippine Journalists Inc Case 14 Philippine Journalist Inc., Time Context – October 20, (History and start of the experience of the company under martial law) 2.
