Reflections of a Peacemaker

We live in a world where it is easier to let pride, jealousy and recrimination rule us then it is to work at forgiveness and reconciliation. Mattie Stepanek's heartsongs of love and peace should inspire us in our day to day lives. Maya Angelou said "He believed that the human spirit could overcome wars, and rumours of wars, hate destruction, cruelty, brutality."

Listen to his heartsongs and renew your faith in the human spirit.

The Season is upon us now,
Let us enter, here is how...

Come in joy to celebrate.
Come in hope for future's sake.
Come in gently, open-hearted.
Come for unborn, and departed.
Come in happiness and mirth.
Come with faith that serves the earth.
Come in kindness, come forgiving.
Come to share the gift of living.
Come in patient, calm, assuring.
Come with grace and trust enduring.
But most of all, let's come in peace,
The dark of angry hurt, release.

The Season 'tis upon us now,
Let us
enter, here is how...

For young and old in every land
Let us come joined hand-in-hand.
