Posts Tagged ‘Peace Train’

A co-worker friend of mine collects old LP’s. Our colleagues

Sometimes bring in theirs to share, and today’s

batch of around 200 classics contained Cat Stevens’

Teaser and the Firecat. There are some great songs on this

Record, such as Morning has Broken, Moonshadow, and yes,

our beloved Peace Train.

My friend knows about my passion for the Peace Train, so

he gave the album to me. Now I have heard the song

a gazillion times but must admit I had never paid a

whole lot of attention to the lyrics, which, I now know

are brilliant and beautiful!

I am sure the full lyrics are out there to

find if you wish, but here are a few nuggets

directly from the inside cover…..

I’ve been smiling lately, dreaming about the world as one and I believe it could be….

Peace train sounding louder, glide on the peace train

Get your bags together, go bring your good friends too, cause it’s getting nearer, it soon will be with you

Come and join the living, its not so far from you and it’s getting nearer

Oh I’ve been crying lately thinking about the world as it is.

Why must we go on hating, why can’t we live in bliss?

Come on now peace train

Oh, please train…

 

The Peace Train is sounding louder as we get closer to our first SL Peacefest event! Many are joining the group and coming up with fantastic ideas on how to make this event even more in line with our goals and dream of a more peaceful planet.

Kudos to all who are working for peace, and to all who may still join us on our quest!

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!
