ANTHEM:  Many Gifts, One Spirit by Allen Pote

Many gifts, one spirit, many songs, one voice.  Many reasons, one promise, many questions, one choice.  O God, we pray for unity, give guidance from above.  In our differences unite us in the circle of your love.  O God, remind us we are not alone.  Though we move on different pathways, we are walking to your throne.  Help us learn to love each other, show us ways to understand we are members of one family, growing strong by joining hands.  Take our many ways of working, blend the colors of each soul into the beauty of a rainbow, give us life, Lord, make us whole.
