Hi Gang,

I set us up a group at a heavy traffic site called Second Life Profiles

Please sign up and start using this site to promote when you can, as it is a good alternative for those of us who cannot do Second Life away from home. Find me on there and add me as a friend too. My username is KK4Peace.

The death of Benazir Bhutto today may bring out difficult emotions.  As we carry on in our quest for peace, here are some words of prayer from different religions, to aid us in bringing comfort  and hope to ourselves and others…

images2.jpg

Islam:                                                                                                                                               O God! We call you with your beautiful names: the One, the Holy, the Sovereign, the Just, and the Peace. We call with love and sincerity to bring peace to our world and guide our steps to do what is right and what pleases You.

O the Eternal and Compassionate Lord!
Fill our hearts with your Love, and help us to love one another, and show compassion to your servants throughout the world and your creation.

O God! We ask you in submission and humility to allow wisdom to triumph over vanity, truth over falsehood, and love over hate.

Amen

Buddhist                                                                                                                                        Now this triple world
All is my domain;
The Living Beings in it
All are my children
But now this place
Abounds with illness and calamity;
And I alone
Am able to save and protect them.

Christian                                                                                                                                        God of perfect peace,
violence and cruelty can have no part with you.
May those who are at peace with one another
hold fast to the good will that unites them;
may those who are enemies forget their hatred and be healed.

We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God,
for ever and ever.

Baha’i                                                                                                                                                O Lord!  Draw up the people from the abyss of the ocean of hatred and enmity, and deliver them from the impenetrable darkness.  Unite their hearts, and brighten their eyes with the light of peace and reconciliation.  Deliver them from the depths of war and bloodshed, and free them from the darkness of error.  Remove the veil from their eyes, and enlighten their hearts with the light of guidance.  Treat them with Thy tender mercy and compassion, and deal not with them according to Thy justice and wrath which cause the limbs of the mighty to quake.  

Jewish                                                                                                                                                You who make harmony
in the ultimate reaches of the universe,
teach us to make harmony
within ourselves, among ourselves — 
and peace for the Godwrestling folk,
the people Israel; 
for our cousins the children of Ishmael; and for all who dwell upon this planet.
(Cong: Amein) 

Hindu                                                                                                                                                Oh Lord God almighty, may there be peace in
celestial regions.

May there be peace on Earth.
May the waters be appeasing.

May herbs be wholesome, and may trees
plants bring peace to all. May all beneficent
beings bring peace to us.

May all things be a source of peace to us.
And may thy peace itself, bestow peace on all
and may that peace come to me also.

Native American                                                                                                                              O Great spirit of our Ancestors, I raise my pipe to you;
To your messengers in the four winds, and
to Mother Earth who provides for your children.
Give us the wisdom to teach our children to love, to respect, and to be kind to each other, so that they may grow with peace in mind.

Let us learn to share all good things that you provide for us on this Earth.

Tonight at 01:08 EST, the sun will be the farthest away from the Equator, marking the winter solstice. For some, the solstice is a very spiritual experience.

Believers and nonbelievers alike gather each year at stonehenge to celebrate the light in the darkness, the longest night, and the birth of a new season….a new year.

Paul Winter celebrates with his “living music” every year at St John the Divine Cathedral in New York City.  Like a breath of fresh air  and a storm coming all at once, Winter walks us through the darkness to the light in sound and fury, refreshing our spirit and waking our soul. 

Hear the 2007 performance

Watch short video clip:  Paul Winter opens the concert

“The solstice event is a journey through the world, celebrating the cultures and creatures of the whole earth”

What a perfect time to decide to take part in the worldwide event this coming August, in support of peace around the globe!  Join us in Second Lifeas we get ready for SL Peacefest 08!  Join the group “Peace Train” and contact us in world to let us know!

We still need plenty of volunteers to pull off this multicultural, multilingual, truly worldwide event to support peace and the efforts of peacemakers from every walk of life on the planet.

This line is from the final verse of “Oh Holy Night”, which I just heard Celine Dion Sing for the first time. Give yourself this gift and listen if you have not had the pleasure:

Listen to the whole thing. It’s the rest of that last verse that will take your breath away.

….and in his name all oppression shall cease

We are working toward this very goal with SL Peacefest 08.

So many of us have the passion, unbridled, knowing not where to focus our love and energy.

Now we have such a place. We are engineers of peace, the faithful from all walks with God, and we invite you to join us this coming summer to celebrate peace, embrace peaceful ends to war and oppression, to love one another by doing good works.

Hop on the Peace Train! Contact us in world (Second Life) to be a part of this ground breaking event!
