  5. Region 8 Field Day

CORAC East Texas, geographically located around the center of Region 8 (Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas and Oklahoma) produced our Field Day on November 5. Members from all four states were present. Our “headliner speakers” were Charlie Johnston, who opened and closed the day, Mother Miriam of the Lamb of God, and Doug Barry of the US Grace Force and EWTN’s Battle Ready. All three gave rousing talks. (Photo credits: Mark Tanner Photography)

We were fortunate to begin with Holy Mass, always the best way to start any event. One priest came to hear confessions, and the demand was great enough that two other priests set up impromptu confessionals on the lawn.

Our own local CORAC experts gave the topical presentations on:

  • Radio communications
  • Livestock butchering and dressing
  • Raising chickens and ducks
  • Water purification, from lake to table
  • Home defense
  • Emergency medicine
  • Foraging and tincture-making
  • Emergency sanitation
  • Canning and food preservation
  • Prudent gardening

The butchering, dressing and roasting of the goat generated much interest, and provided a treat for those who stayed late (and it was delicious!) The radio display was especially impressive, with National Comm team members Paul Allred and Scott Allred coming from Dallas to set up a multi-vehicle station with antennae high in the trees and a solar array to power it. One of our east Texas members, a 30-year physician, gave a demo on treating household emergencies if 9-1-1 were slow or non-responsive for a time. The chickens and ducks were co-presenters for a talk on raising poultry.

Local events bring out the expertise that may be hidden among your members. All the topical presenters were from Region 8. I had no idea the depth of knowledge in our region alone. They just needed a forum. I believe it’s the same in every region. There is a depth of knowledge and experience that needs to be mined.

Leadership is not a position at CORAC, it’s a mindset fueled by the heart. In these challenging times of rapid change and uncertainty, we thrive by empowering our members –– from all walks and stages of life –– to humbly take an active role in our mission.  Now is the time to take responsibilty for the gifts God entrusted you with, use them for the benefit of others, and trust that God will multiply your effort to help reap an abundant harvest. In short, acknowledge God, take the next right step, and be a sign of hope to those around you.
