Change: One person at a time

Parliament terrace
The Thameside Terrace of the Houses of Parliament
In company with many, I passed under the scene of the attack on a tube train at the exact moment it was happening: entirely oblivious to the atrocity taking place above.
What is the proper response of people of faith? Surely not to display some kind of righteous, holy anger, but to find ways to reflect the grace of God in all aspects of our lives.

The recommended tune for singing these words to is Go Forth.

To God we come and lift our voices high;
 
children of hope, we sing his majesty!
 
Called to be faithful to the Lord of life
 
– to change the world, one person at a time.
 
In faith we build communities of Grace;
 
hold broken lives for God’s love to retrace.
 
Ours are the faces and the feet he’ll use
 
to change the world, one person at a time.
 
 
Our lives become a song of hope for all:
 
‘Jesus is Lord’ is now our clarion call!
 
God’s chosen people take it to the streets
 
to change the world, one person at a time.
 
 
Open the doors, let none be left inside:
 
send us to share with all who fear the light.
 
Praise God who calls his Church to dare to go
 
and change the world, one person at a time.
