Tricia and I wrote this song several years ago, but it seems that the lyrics are even more relevant today. Our society is becoming increasingly polarised. Those of us who use social media cannot fail to notice the hatred and vitriol that people pour out on those with differing political, religious or philosophical views to their own. We see racism raising it's ugly head, alongside nationalism, intolerance, suspicion and fear of those who are different.
More than ever we need to embrace the wonderful words of 1 Corinthians 13, which ends with: "And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love".
In this current climate may we all do our best to not only love the Lord with everything we have, but to truly love our neighbours as we love ourselves.

You might be right and I'm wrong
I may be weak and you're strong
No matter where we come from
Why can't we all get along
Why can't we live side by side
Let go of all that divides
You can't hear my point of view
When I don't listen to you
We need to love
We need to show
We need to love
Each other as we love
Why does our truth make us fight
Why do we need to be right
Our fears flourish and grow
When we let prejudice show
Some say God rules over all
Loves all His children the same
So is He taking the fall
For all that's done in His name?
So I will try to be kind
And leave good memories behind
Knowing that when I am gone
This love will still carry on
