One world: a litany of celebration

We celebrate the essential unity of the world -
May there be an end to systems of distrust and enmity.

We celebrate the glorious diversity of the human species -
May there be an end to injustice and prejudice.

We celebrate the web of life enfolding this good earth-
May there be and end to all that destroys our global home.

We celebrate and give thanks for the resources of our planet -
May we put an end to hunger, poverty and wasteful husbandry.

We celebrate the divine Spirit, at work within us and sustaining our one world -
May the one world vision be ours.

We celebrate our unity here together. May what is true for us
now be true for more and more people everywhere
Until the whole world knows that it is one..

From Spirit of Time and Place, by Cliff Reed
