About "PERFUME FOR ARABIA"
Since the beginning of time the east and west have argued over brotherhood and philosophy.
The bible documents the arguments and conflict of Cain and Abel. In more recent times conflicts have continued between the brotherhood of humankind.
Some people take the perspective that we are one people existing on a planet which is traveling through space and time.
Many great thinkers suggest there is a need to discover what is good in each of us, to celebrate this and to cooperate, working together for the good
of all humankind.
In New Zealand we are blessed to be far enough away to have a unique view point of the world.
We have no natural enemies and we are one of the youngest nations and the last piece of earth to be occupied by a colony.
Perhaps it is this distance from the problems faced by many nations of the world, that allows New Zealand to think and act differently.
We believe that everyone has the right to a quality of life, to be respected, to be honored and cheerished. New Zealand is a nation in which a people have come from many nations, each to make a better life for themselves and their families. We all came here from somewhere else and so we view ourselves as merely caretakers of this beautiful place.
Then let the thoughts of these words reach you and encourage you.
WE APPRECIATE YOU.
WE VALUE YOUR CONTRIBUTION TO HUMANITY
WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR ART AND YOUR CULTURE
AND EMBRACE YOU AS A FRIEND.
Psalm 133 (This is) a song for climbing by David.
v1 See how good it is. And see what pleasure it brings when brothers stay together.
v2 It is as a sweet *oil poured on the head. It goes down on to the beard, as it did on to Aaron’s beard. It then poured down over his clothes.
v3 It is like the *dew on the mountain called Hermon. It (also) pours down on to the mountains of Zion. The *LORD has said that it is a *good place to be. There is always life there.
Enjoy the music.
