I took my youth group to Greenbelt again this year. All sorts of things moved and inspired us, but perhaps most of all this song, “One Day”: http://www.greenbelt.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/One-Day.pdf
So at our first youth group session of the new term, we wrote our own “One Day” verses – and were inspired all over again. Here they are:
One day there will be no war anywhere in the whole world.
One day the world will be a less violent and more eco-friendly place.
One day there will be no more famine and everyone will be able to get a job.
One day everyone in the world will be kind to each other.
One day everyone in the world will care about the environment.
One day there will be no racism.
One day we will experience world peace.
One day all people will be respected.
One day grown ups will listen properly to children.
The last one seems particularly telling. Perhaps we can start that today?
