[Love Revolution by Michael Tyrrell]
I think now after all these years I could really dig being a “hippie”. 😉 The whole concept of a Love Revolution has sparked a movement in me, that serves to change my focus from the ‘follow the rules’ thing [which I have never been good at] to the ‘follow One’s Heart’ thing [that I soo love]. And it appears to this listener, that Michael Tyrrell highlights & embraces rather poetically the True LoveFest that is available to you & me. And if I were not already ‘head [& heart] over heels’ with the love of Christ, I would be so inspired to go there now. The words, the focus, and the up-beat melody stirs my heart & moves me… to dance [or at the very least] ‘sway to the music’.
“Don’t know much about…
But I do know that I love you
& I know that if you loved me too…
What a wonderful world this would be.”
(Written & first recorded by Sam Cooke  &
What a wonderful world – Simon & Garfunkel version )
“What the world needs now is love, sweet love;
It’s the only thing that there’s just too little of.
What the world needs now is love, sweet love;
No, not just for some… but for everyone.”
(What The World Needs Now (1965) – Jackie DeShannon)
At the time… When I was ‘coming of age’ it was a decade too late to fully embrace the ‘impact of the 60’s generation’. But ‘the good part’ of what I remember from that time was the passion, the cause, the movement, and the move of passion for the cause.
I loved how they had a genuine interest in being “in love” and shared that with and “for the love” of others. When they fought, they appeared to be fighting for someone or something. I find this admirable because they “chose a side”, they were “on fire”, they were “hot” for what they believed in. [Sticky note~ I’m not sayin’ here that they all had good eye-sight, just cause, or even that I agree with their actions. I just loved their passion!]. And I noticed a wisdom & integrity of the 60’s I didn’t experience so much with the latter decades… The LOVE Cause & its POWER for change.
Fast forward to today… We seem to need a jump-start or have an occasion [like a Presidential Election] to Rise Up, Love, & Fight for What & Who we believe in, with the Love, Focus, Power ~with Passion~ that God gives us. And sadly still, so many of us “feel”… hopeless, powerless, loveless, worthless, passionless, voteless, & godless to do so.
Oh my God I pray, it’s time…

John 15 (NASB)
Jesus Is the Vine—Followers Are Branches
1“I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. 2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bear more fruit. 3 You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. 5 I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing. 6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is thrown away as a branch and dries up; and they gather them, and cast them into the fire and they are burned. 7 If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. 8 My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be My disciples. 9 Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; abide in My love. 10 If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love; just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. 11 These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full.
Disciples’ Relation to Each Other
12 “This is My commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends. 14 You are My friends if you do what I command you. 15 No longer do I call you slaves, for the slave does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I have heard from My Father I have made known to you. 16 You did not choose Me but I chose you, and appointed you that you would go and bear fruit, and that your fruit would remain, so that whatever you ask of the Father in My name He may give to you. 17 This I command you, that you love one another.
