Wrote Lawrence Stern, an 18th Century
clergyman, "This world surely is wide enough
to hold both thee and me."
Indeed, there is plenty of room on this earth...
For every color
For every creed
For old truths
For new insights
The shortages on this earth exist not because
there is "the lack of space" as some would contend.
Rather, our deficiencies are primarily due to a
scantness of Spirit in the hearts of men.
Wide enough, wide enough, yes, this world is
wide enough for both thee and me.
