PEACEMAKERS CITY PATROLS will be out on the street of Bristol brandishing the good news in an innovative way on Good Friday.
“Every day is a good day,” says Peacemakers leader, “but on Friday 19th April 2019, we are actually setting apart this day to use as the platform to do something good, by providing ‘a good Friday service’ which shares goodwill for all. How do we hope to achieve this? Our goal is to give out our ‘Life Loves You’ stickers to passersby, on a day that is regarded all over the world by many as Good Friday.”
They are inviting everyone to come and spread the love around town. They will be setting up a stand at the front-side of Debenhams, in Broadmead Shopping Quarter, Bristol from 11 am to 1 pm. There will be balloons, stickers with ‘Life Loves You’ written on them, and of course, a free Easter Egg.
The Emphasis behind this Initiative is the powerful, positive 3 worded sentence. They hope their efforts will raise the morale of shoppers and visitors to the area, to create a greater sense of worth and wellbeing, as well as a safety deterrent. Reverend Palmer, the visionary behind the project says, “When a person feels valued they are able to value someone else too. A small gesture such as our ‘Life Loves You sticker’ is very likely to create a ripple effect of an environment of charged with positivity, love, harmony, and peace. When a person learns that their own life is lovable, they can begin to see the value of life in another, hatred through fear of difference, and intimidation gives way to self-esteem, tolerance and kindness so that we can all enjoy a more peaceful and just society.”
Sometimes people just need a reminder … a little love can go a long way towards healing old wounds. We hope our presence will help to Make Bristol Better – Peacemakers City Patrols.
In a world where political uncertainty, growing knife crimes and violence, relationship breakdowns, and terribly sad news internationally and locally fills our news channels as the expected, I dare to believe that we have found a few solutions to change this!
PEACEMAKERS have come up with a few innovative ideas for Spring 2019 through 2020, which, I hope you will find exciting and willing to support. It is because I believe that Life is Magnificent and full of creative ideas and fresh possibilities to make Bristol a safer better place to visit, live, work and play.
The new ideas are exciting, simple and open. They are designed in a way that more people may become interested and choose to get involved in spreading the love, so to speak – as well as taking part in something where they see themselves making a difference and becoming a beneficial presence on the planet.
Therefore we would like to invite you to join us next Thursday 4th April 2019, at the Butlers Cafe, upstairs within the Broadmead Galleries Food Court, at 11 am, and here we will unfold our fresh new Vision for Making Bristol Better 2019-2020, over a cuppa!
I do hope that you will be able to come. Please indicate if this is something that you are interested in, would like to be kept in the loop about, or to get involved with at a later date, and we will forward updates as they occur.
Many thanks for dropping by. Wishing you a blessed, safe, happy day, all day
A small Meetup is to held in the Cafe area, on the top floor of the Galleries, in the Bristol Broadmead Shopping Centre, on Wednesday Morning, 20th February 2019 at 10.30am. The Butler’s Diner seating area is being discussed as the most likely. It is an open invitation to attend and hear first-hand the new ideas for Patrol 2019 going forward. Not much has been disclosed so far except the Title for the new Initiative “Let’s help make Bristol Better”.
Plans are also on the way to meet and discuss the plans with Police, Various Communities, Groups, Organization, and Businesses. In the past, Visible Peacemakers Patrols were successful in reducing high levels of crime in many parts of Bristol and other parts of the UK as well as abroad. Most of these areas remained low or no crime areas afterward.
Let us hope that LHMBB will be as great as its aspiration! see below the copy of the letter that was sent out from the Chief Commissioner’s Office today.
May love and supply visit at your hearts’ door.
Fling open wide the windows of your souls to the freedoms of Bliss that is already yours by Divine Design. O let it be! O receive it now! Then say, “and so it is” …. and so it is! Amen. Amen.
PREDICTIONBENEDICTION - by the Reverend Dawnecia Palmer, OBA AFP AOC - Chief Commissioner PEACEMAKERS Prayer Patrols
As we approach the last few days of 2018 what lessons have been learnt? And are we any wiser going forward? Because if we haven’t learnt Life lessons and are none the wiser, we might very well find that instead of going forward, we are even further back than where we were, when the year begun.
In order to move forward, we must rid ourselves of these 3 things – Worry, Want, War.
Worry not – because we cease to be in the now – we have forgotten what we are. Want not – because we haven’t yet learned that all is as should be – we have forgotten whose we are. War not – because hate, fear, anger, guilt and pain consume, consummate and separate – we have forgotten who they are.
So as 2018 fades into history, let us be mindful of the follies that separatism brings, disasters and wars. Wars within, and those without, of personal, societal and country. Gross consumerism, materialism, maltreatment of the ozone through greed and political tyranny, gluttony and competitiveness increase the illusion of not-enoughness, and the incessant vacuum of discontent. And so, we fill our world with fears and stress and worry. Worry, the no.1 killer and not only does it kill personal joy, but it holds nations in terror, blocks out the light of camaraderie and trust for humanity, and in fear they subscribe to war.
Prayer " How good to know that God Is, Peace, Constant Supply, Blessed Assurance. How pleasant also to know that our life is the the life of God, and that, that Life lives and moves us all. It is good, it is very good. And standing on the final step of 2018 we delcare, war no more, I AM my supply, both now and always. Amen, amen, amen."
The PEACEMAKERS Prayer Patrols teams are as rays of light, bringing hope and uplifting communities in the areas they Patrol. If you are interested in joining or creating a team in your area please do get in touch with us through the Contact Us page.
Namaste and Blessings.

PEACEMAKERS PRAYER PATROLS prays Peace for all.
May the presence of peace be felt and known throughout the earth, on land, air and sea,
And the spirit of peace born in each heart.
November, December, Winter, days are shorter, evenings darker, and depending on where you live, the weather is considerably colder too. Yet it is during this season that we most celebrate the rich luminosity of lights. From the oil lamps and candlelights of Diwali, fireworks on Bonfire night, the flickering glow of small tea lights hidden inside scary-faced pumpkins, larger crackling fires of the Winter Solstice, the nine-lights lampstands of Hanukkah, or the twinkling bulbs of Christmas, to the seven candles lit each day for for the Sabba of Kwanzaa.
And so, for any going through a restless dark night of the soul this winter, these festivals of lights are invitations to share in the warmth and glow of The Light and to brighten the path on the journey of Life.
At this juncture, let us call to mind that great Master Teacher who said, “I am the Light of the world.” It is this light that lights everyone at birth. And furthermore, we are told that we are the lights of a city set on a hill. We came here loaded with light. Therefore, comprehend your shine. And as we own our light, we shine a path for others to see and so find their way through the darkness.

May Peace like a mighty shower of rain wash over our souls today
May Peace Rain wash our streets, our towns and villages, cities and countries, nations
May Peace Rain flood our hearts
Flooding our dreams, and, finding sanctuary,
Peace Rain, here remain.
Peace Rain, prayer for peace - composed by Reverend Dawnecia Palmer October 2018
Peace, real peace begins inside. Peace starts with you. As we become open to this realisation, it allows an invitation for peace to enter and renew our lives.
The changes we so desperately long to see in the world around us must already be happening inside us. As we wake up in consciousness to peace, we become a peace-giver to our own world and peacemakers for the world at large.
Seeing peace. Seek to see peace through lenses of peace, re-viewing each person as part of the global family of Life, the life of God, the Christ, the soul’s peace, thus creating peace for all.
So, step away from the noise of separation and not-enoughness, let go of fear and thoughts of pending dooms. Now, Turn inside, and with peace eyes, behold the vast domain of peacefulness! it is off the chain!
