G8 Leaders Feast After Discussing World Food Shortages

“G8 Leaders Feast on 8 courses After Discussing World Food Shortages”

When I read this headline, the first thing that popped to my mind was this: Luke’s Gospel, Chapter 16, Verses 19-31.

I’ve copied the text from the New American version of the Bible, but it should read the same regardless of the version you have access to.  Please read the excerpt, then click on any part of it to be taken to the story about the great feast.

Peace and Much Love.

“There was a rich man  who dressed in purple garments and fine linen and dined sumptuously each day.

And lying at his door was a poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores, who would gladly have eaten his fill of the scraps that fell from the rich man’s table. Dogs even used to come and lick his sores.

When the poor man died, he was carried away by angels to the bosom of Abraham. The rich man also died and was buried, and from the netherworld, where he was in torment, he raised his eyes and saw Abraham far off and Lazarus at his side.

And he cried out, ‘Father Abraham, have pity on me. Send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I am suffering torment in these flames.’

Abraham replied, ‘My child, remember that you received what was good during your lifetime while Lazarus likewise received what was bad; but now he is comforted here, whereas you are tormented.

Moreover, between us and you a great chasm is established to prevent anyone from crossing who might wish to go from our side to yours or from your side to ours.’

He said, ‘Then I beg you, father, send him to my father’s house, for I have five brothers, so that he may warn them, lest they too come to this place of torment.’

But Abraham replied, ‘They have Moses and the prophets. Let them listen to them.’

He said, ‘Oh no, father Abraham, but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent

Then Abraham said, ‘If they will not listen to Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded if someone should rise from the dead.'”

Conscious Tuesday

In keeping with my ‘no stress for the week pledge’, here’s some Conscious Reggae music.

Rasta Coulored Lion of Judah

Steel Pulse has always been one of my favourite Reggae groups.

Their songs are catchy, memorable and always carry a strong lyrical message.

One of my favourite Steel Pulse songs is “Chant a Psalm”, which I’ll share here with you.

Enjoy.

Rejoice, Rejoice
Good tidings I bring you
Hear ye, a message to you my friend
Voices cry, invoke your angels
When pressure drop it cannot conquer dread, No
So blow away your bluesy feeling
Spirits say take the world off you shoulder
One foot in the grave is a foolish step to take
Who sow in tears shall reap in joy
Wise man doctrines assure your safety
No more stumbling block, back stabbers get down
To the righteous revealed, the secret of the scriptures
The wicked dem portion is vanity
Disciples of Lucifer

In your hands lie your destination
The book of true life you hold the key
Mystical powers to you unfold
Seek ye the half that has never been told

Get behind me Satan

Get behind me Satan

I’ve got to chant

Chant a psalm a day

True Democracy

Reach you in a vision yeh, come on
Come walkies down easy street
Attract these angels in dreams and your prayers
Remember the three holy children
Remember the visions of Daniel
Remember the magic of Moses, so
Dash away your bluesy feeling
Spirits say take the world off you shoulder
One foot in the grave, my friend
A foolish step to take

When pressure drop it cannot conquer dread

When pressure drop it cannot conquer dread
Got to be wise yes yes in dis ya iwa
Woe betide for the wicked

Disciples of Lucifer

Get behind me Satan

Get behind me Satan

I got to chant

Chant a psalm a day

Moses he did, chant chant
Samson he did, chant chant
Elijah he did, chant chant
I want the whole a we fe chant chant
Solomon he did, chant chant
His father King David, chant chant
John the Baptist, chant chant
I want the whole a we fe chant chant.

This song is from their 1982 album “True Democracy”

Peace and Much Love.
