As you know from our post last month, January 2016 Prayers for Peace, James Twyman, The Peace Troubadour, held his ISIS Prayer Vigil in war-ravaged Syria on February 1. He picked that day to coincide with the beginning of 2016’s World Faith Harmony Week.

Just moments ago it was raining heavily. The heavens still looked a bit grey, were full of ozone though, and smelled fresh, elated and loaded with expectation.

Askew above me an oval shining golden spot in the veil of clouds attracted my eye. To my surprise and with an elegant swing I unexpectedly rose up from the earth and seemed to travel in the direction of the golden gate in the heavens.
