Prayer Station Invitation “Let All Associate”

Let all associate, therefore, in this great human garden
even as flowers grow and blend together side by side.
(Abdu’l-Baha, The Promulgation of Universal Peace, p. 68)

newcreationcoverDear friends!

What nurtures your soul? What makes your heart tender? Prayer, music, fellowship, food cooked with love, tea poured in peace, cake shared with smile? Whatever the answer might be, sharing prayers with friends gets us all closer to the Creator and recharges us for the week ahead.

I invite you and your loves ones to a very special interfaith Prayer Station this Monday evening, April 6th, at 7 pm. Two wonderful bands, New Creation and TaliaSafa from Gainesville, FL will come to share their beautiful music at my humble apartment. Here is some information about the musicians:

Since the early 1990’s, New Creation has tantalized its audiences with its own unique blend of classical, folk, country, rock, gospel, funk and children’s songs.

In 2003, they finally recorded their most requested and beloved song, “Let All Associate”, written in one inspired afternoon by band members Brenda Cooper Derry, Michael Derry, and Talia Johnson.

taliasafacoverWhile New Creation has been working to record a full album of its music, a few of its members, Talia Johnson and Safa Paulson, joined forces with, engineer, producer, and musician, Jon Rezin and released some of their own music on an album called “Attract the Hearts”, under the name TaliaSafa in 2007. Their music also draws from a number of musical styles, but leans toward a more meditative feel, with lyrics coming solely from the Bahá’í Writings.

The other band members mentioned are also joined by bassist, Caeli Lohr, another dedicated and multi-talented musician, who plays a number of instruments and composes his own “Intelligent Dance Music”, one of which is featured on the Attract the Hearts album.

Though New Creation and TaliaSafa have recorded their music under different names, the message and purpose is the same: to proclaim Bahá’u’lláh’s unifying message of oneness of humanity, oneness of God, and oneness of religion, and to uplift hearts through music.

Please join me on Monday at 7 pm for some light refreshments after which the house concert will start. If you can, please let me know if you plan on coming so I can plan the food and drinks but even if you can’t, do come. We’ll also say prayers for anyone in need, so if you can’t join us but would like to request prayers please post a comment or send me a message at mitko AT befriendedstranger DOT com.

    Do you have the chords sir?
    Or an email address to get ahold of the artists?

    Thanks so much,
