DEVOTION: People of the World
In the Olympic games, we saw origination and variation in the combination of many nations.
The goal of each athlete was to excel all others and win the gold. The face of agony and ecstasy could be seen with every challenge. Words of joy and sadness were voiced in a multitude of languages. Amazing acts of courage and execution streamed around the world.   One in hope ...united in purpose ...living in expectation ...sharing vitality.    I am that bread from heaven! Everyone who eats it will live forever. My being is the life-giving bread that I give to the people of this world.  I have life because of the Living God."   O God of all, we are made one in your omnific love.  How can we say thanks for the variance of your possibilities.  We look into the faces of others and see your existence. We listen and learn and realize your gracious intention for every living being.  O forgive us for our limited vision and understanding.  Empower us with the nourishment of your unison bread.  Draw us together in cherished support as we eat and drink from your tree of life.  We yearn to walk together in harmony and peace no matter our culture of experience.  Open our eyes... our hearts... our mouths... our minds... our spirits to YOU, O Living God, as we share infinite energy with all people of the world.
