May the Peace of Christ Be With You

11 Jul

This is a beautiful Japanese folk melody, arranged by Lori True for worship services dedicated in memory of those affected by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan: “May the peace of Christ be with you. May the love of Christ dwell deep in your heart. May the Spirit enlighten your way. May you walk in the comfort of God’s care.”

For two reasons it is here. First, at evening prayer on Sunday, June 26, the people of St. Andrew and I sang this blessing over Bishop Joseph Binzer seventeen days after his ordination, using the verse, “Holy one of God, humble shepherd and guide, may you find contentment in Christ.” We did it. Second, I wanted to learn how to imbed a YouTube video in my blog. I did it!
