The Millennium
Poet: A. C. Shaw

When man will treat his fellow man
As man should treat his neighbor,
Then every man will have in full
The product of his labor.

When man will gladly recognize
In every man a brother,
Then will he scorn to live upon
The labor of another.

When man depends upon himself,
With nothing to inherit.
Then every man will stand or fall
According to his merit.

Then every new device would aid
And not retard the plan,
And every new invention be
A benefit to man.

There's nothing standing in the way
Except our inner blindness;
And if this inner man should wake,
'Twould flood the world with kindness.

And if it's free we wish to be,
And safe within his keeping,
Then we should wake the king within
For he is only sleeping.

The carnal man is on the throne;
He's but a false aspirant;
As long as man will give him sway,
He'll rule him like a tyrant.

This carnal man is robbed and crowned,
Demands a princely dower;
'Tis time that man should call a halt,
Deprive him of his power.

The inner man should be the king,
And he should wear the crown.
The king's within, he must be heard;
He can not, will not, down!

One road to the Millennium —
There is but one, my brother;
Tis founded on unselfish love,
The joy you give another.



Let us all hope that the dark clouds of racial prejudice will soon pass away, 
and that in some not too distant tomorrow the radiant stars of love and brotherhood
 will shine over our great nation with all their scintillating beauty. 
Martin Luther King, Jr.


Brotherhood
Poet: Lena Hammer Thacker

There is much talk of brotherhood.
O how I wish that talking could
Bring conflicts to a speedy end,
Turn hate to love; make foe a friend.

But there can be no brotherhood
Except man love God as he should
To be a brother one must be
Like Him who walked in Galilee
Who always did the Father's will
And thus His mission did fulfill.

Christ taught God's Word from door to door
Je healed the sick and helped the poor;
Fed the hungry, cheered the faint;
Turned helpless sinner into saint;
Speech to the dumb He did restore
And hearing to the deaf; what's more,
The dead to life again He raised
Then voices sang, "Our God be praised!"

Read prayerfully our Lord's life story
From manger bed to heaven's glory.
'Twill do your soul a world of good
To join the ranks of brotherhood.
Brothers are they who hear God's Word
And do it, for they love the Lord.


The crest and crowning of all good, life's final star, is Brotherhood.
Edwin Markham


Brotherhood Poem
Rev. Rebecca Lassiter

If we keep a heart full of love,
For all mankind today,
Come what may war and strife,
May the soul still trust and pray.

Keep the heart full of love,
Ask God to make it so,
You can these troubled day,
Help men make hatred go.

Keep the heart full of love,
And though the night seems long,
God's grace sufficient is
To fill your heart with song.

Keep the heart full of love
So that all others see
The Christ of God alone
Now and eternally.
