Peace

"About two years ago, just as Church of the Beloved was getting off the ground, I (along with several others) was asked by Ryan to write a song for our church. The topic I was given: peace. As I began to think about what I might say about peace, I recalled a conversation with a friend where he had said one particularly simple yet stunning sentence. He said, "We don't have to agree to relate." These words helped me shape the message of the song. I wanted our community to have a song that invited us to peace and relationship amidst our differences and conflicts. I felt that as we laid the groundwork for our new church, it was important to establish this as a core value and commitment to each other."

Lyrics

Broken conversations, broken people, we're broken Lord.
Terrified illusions, seeking comfort, we're seeking more.
We need each other more than we need to agree.
Father, Son, Spirit bless us with your love,
with your grace and peace.

Peace.
Let there be peace.
Let there be peace.
Let there be peace.

Let us see and not destroy. Let us listen. Let us listen.
Let us suspend judgement for the sake of love, for the sake of love.
We need each other more than we need to agree.
Father, Son, Spirit bless us with your love,
with your grace and peace.

Love.
Let there be love. (among us)
Let there be love. (among us)
Let there be love.
