Grow in Peace

New on You Tube ... Grow in Peace ... featuring one of my favorite hymns, "One Earth, One Sky" by Kim Oler (son of All Saints clergy colleague Clarke Oler).

From a 2004 ENS article:

The spot features the song “Peace on Earth” composed by Kim Oler and Alison Hubbard, and recorded by the choir of All Saints Episcopal Church, Pasadena, Calif., which commissioned the music and lyrics in 1986. Since that time, the song has been sung regularly, and often weekly, during Sunday services at the Pasadena parish ... Oler – a New York City-based composer whose father, Clarke, assisted on the staff of All Saints, and was previously rector of Holy Trinity, Manhattan, and All Saints, Beverly Hills [recorded] the spot with the Pasadena parish choir, directed by James Walker.

One Earth, one sky,
one God on high,
one people here below;
one binding theme,
one goal,
one dream,
for all who live and grow:
Peace on Earth,
Peace on Earth,

I hope Bishop Bruno is fully recovered from his surgery. Say hello to Fr. Jon Anderson in Ojai.
