James Twyman has had the privilege of composing music for the peace prayers of each of the 12 major religions of the world. His was a gift given to be shared and the desire was to share it specifically in countries that were experiencing violence caught up in religion. Performing first in the homeland of St. Frances in Italy, he subsequently visited Croatia and Bosnia. While on a teaching tour, he met a group of mystics calling themselves the Emissaries of Light. His experiences with them and their methods of transforming fear into love inspired his book Emissary of Light. James's words and music inspire in each of us the power to be an emissary of light and make a peaceful difference in the world.
