PEACEMAKERS CITY PATROLS will be out on the street of Bristol brandishing the good news in an innovative way on Good Friday.

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.

PEACEMAKERS PRAYERS FOR VICTIMS OF ISTANBUL’S AIRPORT BOMBINGS

At the beginning of the year 2016, we were commissioned to pray for the world. Love, Hope and Peace is the charge. Six months in, and we have heard of scores of murders and all sorts of atrocities, on a global scale. We can choose to follow the charge and believe for change; or we can continually shift our focus to the terrible news reports of terror and fear. I recommend that we continue to pray, unceasingly, with great fervency and determination to see the invisible good, even amidst the illusions of chaos with its temporary disorder.

“And so, in the wake of the Istanbul’s bombing, I pray.    I pray thanksgiving for the lives of the innocent dead. Strength comfort and healing for their relatives and friends. And reiterate the charge of love, hope and peace for the rest of us.”

While the killers are strategizing their next move to steal kill and destroy lives, I am hereby advocating a movement to protect, preserve and save lives. We might not all be able to perform the great action of actually stopping further murders, but, at least, we can all play a part.  world of peopleIf individuals would think of a country, and pray (an intentional thought for safety) for the people of that country, we would soon create ‘an intentional quota of goodwill’ for the preservation of dignity for the human race, where the safety and value for life is upheld, and permeates the whole world.
