A reader alerted me to this story from the Sacramento Bee.

 As 18 doves flew into the skies over the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament Saturday night, more than 100 diverse Sacramentans blessed copies of the Quran with roses of love. ["diverse Sacramentans"  … I … I … umm… ]

Again and again they uttered the refrain, "Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me" at the entrance to the downtown church framed by white statues of Jesus, Mary and Joseph. A musician with a white guitar accompanied them.

Representatives of Jewish, Catholic, Protestant, B’hai, Mormon, Sikh, Vedic Druid and Muslim beliefs read scriptures from the great religious texts – including six verses from the Quran calling for all faiths to live in harmony.

Sacramento’s interfaith community organized the peace rally.


There is no way I will leave the combox open for this.



If you sense that your blood pressure might be rising – out of pure coincidence – after reading this story, don’t blow your stack!

Try chilling out with a mug of freshly brewed…

Myyyyystic Monk Coffeeeeee!

Yes, Mystic Monk Coffee will help you wash away the very thought of white guitars.

Mystic Monk!

It’s groooovy.
