Shoes of Peace

by Patrick P Welch

These songs are all related to peace and social issues. The concept of shoes of peace is from Epesians 6, where we are encouraged to "put on the whole armor of God." Music has been a strong component of social change, so let the music motivate change.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Most if not all of these songs have been specifically written or recrafted with additional verses for a series of Pro-Peace Song Rallys held at the Sly Grog Lounge in Asheville, NC. My personal social-issue-self has been re-awakened in the last few years causing more songs to be created. This has been a gratifying effort, making those of us involved be and feel involved in needed change. My style is often to ask a question, or describe a specific thing that is occurring, like "smoke" on the horizon. " Funeral Train For Lady Planet Earth" began after I read about a train car load of putonium that had been lost or misplaced. This sounded bad to me, and I began forming a song. it has progressed to deal with various things such as the "terminator seed" or migrants seeking assylum. The "Wall" is a reference to a passage of Scripture where Daniel interpreted the handwriting on the wall to mean, "You have been weighed and found wanting". In the song are many social issues which point to our societal guilt. "Where is he wall that the handwriting's on? Do think that we could read it if the writing weren't small? Or is the print just much too large for us to focus on?" So as in the final song, We have The Power Of the people and the Power Of The Soul", let's get busy., and please vote.
