> MY MESSAGE FOR PEACE AND HARMONY
> Dear brothers & sisters,
> We all need to pray for one another, and to love one
> another. We should always pray for the safety, peace,
> love and brotherhood for people all over the world.
> Too bad we can't have an independence day for the
> entire world. A day of freedom from ignorance, hatred,
> war, illusions, power and control. A day where we can
> all love each other as human beings and toss away the
> weapons of war, and cast out our fears and hatreds
> from our hearts into the graves. We must mourn the
> graves of the innocents all over the world, and give
> the children of the world the hope of a peaceful,
> loving and beautiful world.
> A world full of love and without hatred or fear. A
> world where we can join hands together and accept one another,
> regardless of our skin colour, ethnic divisions, religion or
> nationality. If we don't unite as a human race, then we have condemned
> the future generation of children a dark and very grim future.
> Think of love, compassion and peace always...
> MY PRAYER FOR PEACE AND HARMONY
> Merciful God, You made all of the people of the world
> in Your own image and placed before us the pathway of salvation
> through different Preachers who claimed to have been Your Saints and
> Prophets. But, the contradictions (made by us) in the interpretation
> of Your teachings have resulted in creating divisions,
> faith based hatreds and bloodshed in the world
> community. Millions of innocent men, women and
> children have so far been brutally killed by the
> militants of several religions who have been
> committing horrifying crimes against humanity and
> millions more would not be butchered by them in the
> future, if You guide and help us find ways to reunite
> IN THE NAME OF GOD, THE COMPASSIONATE, THE MERCIFUL,
> look with compassion on the whole human family; take
> away the controversial teachings of arrogance,
> divisions and hatreds which have badly infected our
> hearts; break down the walls that separate us; reunite
> us in bonds of love; and work through our struggle and confusion to
> accomplish Your purposes on earth; that, in Your good time, all
> nations and races could jointly serve You in justice, peace and
> harmony. (Amen)

Visit to Belarus July/August 2006
Late July, 2006 and time to yet again visit “Moy Dom” – Mozyr, Belarus. As always, wary of the possibility of extremely high temperatures but that was not to be. Temperatures during my stay were hot without being uncomfortable and at night cool enough to sleep soundly.
I was met at the airport by my “beloved brother” Sergey, Sasha and Nastya. I remember Nastya as a delightful child but now she has blossomed into a beautiful young lady and an excellent speaker of English. She is currently studying at the University of Minsk.,,,,,,,,,,,, more.........
