Beyond Blue

I try not to worry too much about discriminations and uninformed labels here on earth because I know the Kingdom of God is stereotype-free. I was reminded of that as I sang the beautiful lyrics to “One Bread, One Body,” composed by John Foley, S. J., at Church on Sunday. He based the song on several Scriptural passages, one of them being 1 Corinthians 12: 12-13:

“The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ. For we were all baptized by one Spirit into one body–whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free–and we were all given the one Spirit to drink.”

Or like the refrain of John Lennon’s classic, “Imagine“:

“You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one”
