The Goal of World Community With Peace, Liberty, and Justice For All – Our Sixth Principle

Published by AV Coordinator on

Message by Emmie Seaman

The opening words are by the Commission on Common Worship.

From the fragmented world of our everyday lives
We gather together in search of wholeness
By many cares and preoccupations
By diverse and selfish aims
Are we separated from one another
And divided within ourselves
Yet we knew that no branch is utterly severed
From the Tree of Life that sustains us all.

Soon the Day Will Arrive

The closing words are Go Forth in Simplicity, by Samuel A Trumbore.

Go forth in simplicity.
Find and walk the path
that leads to compassion and wisdom,
that leads to happiness, peace and ease.
Welcome the stranger and
open your heart to a world in need of healing.
Be courageous before the forces of hate.
Hold and embody a vision of the common good that
serves the needs of all people.
