  1. Dear Reverend Delgado,

    I am excited reading this and my sincere Prayers for you is for the Lord God Almighty to continue spreading the message of hope in the wake of climate change through your Ministry.


  2. Dear Sharon Delgado.

    I just made the following comment to your article published in Tikkun.

    There is no such thing as “exceptionalism” when it comes to the scourge of nuclear weapons, and no single nation on earth has any right to claim it.

    The NPT treaty’s Article 6 stipulates the ultimate destruction of ALL nuclear weapons and that has to start NOW with the Club of Five nations initiating it in tandem with Israel, Pakistan, India, and North Korea.

    A highly disciplined, well funded, global movement needs trigger this phenomenon from the bottom up.


  3. Hi, Sharon, was interested in reading your entry on Goodbooks, as I share many of your same interests. I am a retired clergyperson in the Anglican Church of Canada. I write fiction and am looking at doing more nonfiction. Hope to get more in touch with like-minded folk out there, so here I am. Very interesting books you are reading.

    Best wishes on your reading and writing.

    Kathleen Schmitt
