http://playingforchange.com/episodes/38/Imagine - - In the beginning of 2010 the Playing For Change crew began work on a new Song Around the World, John Lennon's "Imagine." It has been an amazing year of production, taking the crew from the favelas of Brazil to the shrines of southern India, from villages in Nepal to the glittering urban landscape of Tokyo and New York, and beyond.

This song is the Playing For Change Foundation's gift to the world. The Playing For Change Foundation feels honored to have the blessing and generous support of Yoko Ono as music lovers around the world join together to launch the Power to the People campaign. The campaign seeks to advance John Lennon's vision of peace by engaging artists and audiences to contribute to music education programs worldwide. Proceeds raised will help build music schools, support teachers and music programs, purchase instruments, and connect schools for cross-cultural learning and conflict resolution across borders. Music IS the power: Power to the People.

To learn more about the PFC Foundation, the schools they are building, the lives they are touching, and how you can participate, please visit the Playing For Change Foundation's website at http://playingforchange.org/

Hi Kuuipo... I think I see where you're coming from. The way I understand it is that John Lennon did believe in God (see his quote below) , but he wanted us all to imagine what it would be like if people didn't kill others in the name of their religion.  

 

"I believe in God, but not as one thing, not as an old man in the sky. I believe that what people call God is something in all of us. I believe that what Jesus and Mohammed and Buddha and all the rest said was right. It's just that the translations have gone wrong."~John Lennon

Those who simplify, fear and take literally the metaphor of the messenger, expend inordinate time and energy debating it's validity, rather than simply heeding the overall wisdom set before them, thus perpetuating a circular misrepresentation of the truth, while doing little to accomplish the goals they so adamantly defend...

Imagine, the reality of truly accepting and following the L.O.V.E. offered by the countless messengers throughout the ages... bringing their grace and peace unto fruition.... Imagine....

C.H.A.O.S.

"IMAGINE " Sermon for Sunday December 13, 2009(A lesson in cause and affect) By Kuuipo Makalani
Sermon for Sunday December 13, 2009
By Kuuipo Makalani

"Imagine "
Luke 7:18-19

Jesus Christ Our Lord and Saviour is risen! He is risen, indeed! Imagine the sadness of the world if the Saviour was still in His tomb? Imagine the darkness, the despair, the terrible tragedy of our condition if Jesus Christ Lord and Saviour were dead....... This day we give thanks to God for the crucified Christ is alive. He is our living Lord and Saviour and it is His redeeming resurrection we proclaim. May God's good news touch our hearts. Lord, grant this grace to us all. Amen.

Less than a mile from my home stands a billboard. It is a very pretty little billboard, actually. It's panels look like they are put together with bits of blue and red and yellow stained glass. As to the billboard's message, that is also incredibly simple. In great, bold, black letters, the sign carries three words: "Imagine No Religion." The first time I drove past that billboard I did as it suggested. I tried to imagine a world in which there was no religion, where all the things religion had built, touched, and transformed over the centuries was eliminated or neutralized. My problem was this: when I contemplated a world without religion, I was overwhelmed. There were simply too many things which needed to be altered and modified and eliminated and erased.

For example, many of our hospitals, our nursing homes, the hospices, the retirement communities have been founded by religious organizations. In contrast, I know of very few similar places which have been built upon the humanitarian altruism of atheists and agnostics. Imagine No Religion. Next I thought of the colleges and universities which were begun by religious institutions. Then there is the army of volunteers which has found their motivation, their inspiration and their association in the church. The contributions i give to share the Saviour. Others sharing the Saviour's story for almost decades. Organizations also send out caring Christian teams to locations around the world. In the Name of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, those teams bring learning supplies to children who live on a garbage dump in Mexico, or they may help rebuild a family fishing boat which has been destroyed by a tsunami in Asia, or they may work to reclaim and restore a church building desecrated and despoiled by decades of Communist persecution, or they may work closer to home, renovating and repairing southern homes made unlivable by a hurricane. Once I got started thinking about the volunteers it was difficult to stop. There are so many who, having received the Christ's blood-bought forgiveness and the salvation which it gives, have come forward to share their precious Saviour in whatever way they can, wherever they can, to as many people as they can.

Imagine No Religion. In recent weeks I have passed that billboard numerous times. Each time I drove by I tried to follow through on its suggestion to imagine a world without religion. I thought about the laws which we enjoy in North America. Many of those laws are founded on Biblical principles established by t

" established by the Triune God who recognizes the value of all people. That is why here we do not discriminate between Jew and Gentile, slave and free, male and female. Recent world history has shown what does happen when leaders deny Divine direction, guidance and blessing, preferring to elevate and emphasize their wisdom, their power, their vision. You don't have to look far to see what the state will do when religion is removed. Look to the Nazis of Germany in the 1930s. They tried to legislate religion out of the lives of their citizenry. You know what happened to the Jews, the gypsies, the mentally challenged, the minorities, the conquered countries, anyone who did not measure up, who did not conform. You know what happened. You've seen the movies of the gas chambers and the concentration camps. Yes, imagine a world where there is no religion. It's easy to do. In vast Russia and populated China, atheism and agnosticism had many years to solidify hatred of the Creator and His church. Only now are there historians beginning to tally up the millions who were beaten and banished, the many tens of millions who were murdered and massacred and starved to death by their own brutal and sadistic rulers.

Of course, there were many times when my billboard-inspired imaginings were not so dark. There were times when I passed that sign and I thought of all the Christian people I had known over the years who had been a very personal blessing to me. How much poorer my life would have been without my Christian father. .

I thought of the Christian ladies who prepared and served meals for mourning families after a funeral; of Christian friends who, for hours, sat in silence by the side of parents who had a child who was seriously ill. I remembered the good Samaritans who had, completely behind the scenes and without anyone ever knowing, provided financial help for those who were struggling. I remembered the Christian teachers, brilliant, dedicated, underpaid Christian teachers who consistently went above and beyond the call of duty.......Those who wish only to bring the Saviour's story of salvation to people whom they will never meet, people whose names they will never know, people who live in places they will never go.

Because of a billboard I had remembered the countless blessings I had received from my crucified and risen Saviour. Quite frankly, this is an awful lot for a little billboard to do. It was a lot to ask of a street sign which carried only three words: Imagine No Religion. Somthing John Lennon also asked us to do, and now I know why.... I had imagined such a world and was thankful I would never live in such a place.......

That's why, one day I decided to express my appreciation to the people who had put up the sign. I wanted to thank those who had encouraged me to offer thanks for the multitude of blessings God has given to me through the perfect life, the innocent suffering, the unjust death, and victorious resurrection of His Son. So I could get an address, a phone number, an email, something which might allow me to contact these people, the next time I passed by that billboard I slowed down. There, in a corner at the bottom I found out this sign had been put up by the "Freedom From Religion Foundation."

Did you get that? The small print said the "Freedom From Religion Foundation" had purchased the billboard. Quite frankly, I was shocked. I had thought the billboard had been put up by some conscientious Christian organization committed to helping people realize what they'd been missing if there were no loving God involved in the affairs of men; if there were no Saviour to die on the cross of Calvary as our heaven-sent Substitute; if there were no risen Redeemer to promise, "Because I live, you will live also"(John 14:19). Apparently, and this is just a guess, when the folks at the Freedom From Religion Foundation asked me to imag
