TRACK LIST
1. SONG FOR THE EDUCATORS ... a new version of one of Peter's most popular songs - often used as a staff-prayer-reflection at the start of a new school year or term.
Hear an MP3 sample
 CHORUS: Can we show the face of Jesus to the children in our caring love?
Can we show the face of loving to the people in our care?
Can the mystery of God's world be revealed in the commonplace?
In an unjust world can we show the Kingdom's way?
In a lonely world can we show the loving way?   

2. Celebrate Me Day ... Peter's gift for 'Rainbows Ireland'. The Rainbows movement helps young people to 'healing through hope' following the experience of loss through death in the family or separation of parents.
Let's celebrate me. Let's celebrate you - coming through the storm.

3. Love Shone Down ... A lovely modern Christmas Carol

4. Sadako from Hiroshima ... Robin Mann's beautiful song about the little girl who made paper-cranes in the hope of recovering from leukemia.

10. One in Love, One in God ... A catchy song / chant for Eucharist

11. Love is Starting Over ... Peter wrote this for his brother John and wife Christine who married in 2003. For both John and Christine this was a second marriage.
