O God of Life, Your Waters Flow

We Were Born Out of the Waters

Rev. Osagyefu Uhuru Sekou: "Faith in the Age of Ferguson"

Rev. Sekou delivers the keynote address at the 2016 PPF Peace Breakfast in Portland, OR.

 

Hymn: God, Whose Love Is Always Stronger

God, whose love is always stronger than our weakness, pride and fear,
In your world, we pray and wonder how to be more faithful here.
Hate too often grows inside us; fear rules what the nations do.
So we pray, when wars divide us: give us love, Lord! Make us new!

Hymn: O God, Our Hearts Were Shattered

O God, our hearts were shattered on that horrendous day;
We heard the news and gathered to grieve and then to pray.
We cried to you and wondered, “Where did the violence start?”
The world as we had known it had just been torn apart.

Another Son is Killed (A Hymn for Peace)

The following hymn is dedicated to the memory of Shaul Lahav, grandson of Paul and Helen Loeb (members of the church where we were then pastors), who was killed while serving in the Israel Defense Forces by a Palestinian on November 18, 2003 on the road between Bethlehem and Jerusalem.  See Carolyn Gillette's hymn note for more on this tragic story that inspired this hymn of lament.
