"Called to be salt, we share
the flavor"--based on Belhar Article 3--suggested tune: RATHERVUE, 98 98 88
by Alfred V. Fedak (in Sing to our God New Songs of Rejoicing, Selah
Called to be salt, we share the flavor
of Godís strong Spirit, lively Word
with broken people who might savor
the sweet communion we have heard
and tangy joys that shall not cease
if we live Godís whole righteous peace.
Called to be light for all the nations,
we must help all the world to see:
there are no multiple salvations;
only when joined are we set free.
We shine the truth that all are one:
All races share in Godís own Son.
Called to be bearers of the Gospel,
let us reject ideas which break
our covenant too, loving, thoughtful,
reach past each human gulf to take
the hand of every God-made child,
together washed and reconciled.James Hart Brumm
