The ABCs of Love for Health, Justice and Liberty for All Life: Our Heart’s Wisdom Points Us Beyond Personal Violence & Planetary Exploitation

A draft of The ABCs of Love for Health, Justice and Liberty for All Life: Our Heart’s Wisdom Points Us Beyond Personal Violence & Planetary Exploitation is posted at www.freedomwise.com. I seek others to enhance its content and presentation in print and other media because this material will be most completely helpful when produced collaboratively. The material promotes dialogue among people of all paths of faith in overcoming the obstacles that fear has fabricated as false yet persuasive excuses for not sharing the power of divine love as Jesus shared it -- without reservation and extended to everyone. The ABCs of love liberate our hearts and minds from learned fears to allow us to discover within us the native gifts and power with which we are each endowed by our Creator and to share these gifts and power within bonds of trust beyond the ego's learned barriers of mistrust.

"Give Us Eyes," a hymn

I wrote the words and music to this hymn one afternoon when I should've been studying for finals. Instead, I felt the need to write a hymn for myself, my church, and for anyone who may find it meaningful. It can be sung as an invocation, an offertory song, during the time of response, or as a benediction. Each verse of the hymn pays attention to a specific part of our bodies. The singer asks God to help us use our bodies in ways that reflect our commitment to the cross and God's intention for them. Give Us Eyes stresses the physical, practical nature of discipleship and asks God to reorient the singer toward the cross, in both word and action. Lastly, through focusing on our bodies, the singer is reminded that our collective bodies make up Christ's resurrected body today that is the church. Download and print it for free!
