On this World Communion Sunday, we celebrate the diversity and community of God's people throughout the earth. Songs of unity, praise, and of the Living Bread will be shared. The Chancel Choir anthem "One World" by Linda Kachelmeier beautifully encapsulates our worship time together in these words:
O for a world where there is peace.
O for a world where we are one.
A world: where I can be myself.
A world: where I can grow old.
A world: where I am free to love and add love to the world.
A world: where teachers are revered.
A world: where laughter is heard.
A world: where children all are safe and sleep in loving arms.
A world: where we can trust our leaders.
A world: where hunger is fed.
A world: where we break down the walls that threaten to divide.
Let peace fill our hearts, our nation and our world.
So we may dream together, pray together, work together
to build one world with room enough for all.
"One World" (2012) by Linda Kachelmeier
