How good and pleasant it is when brothers and sisters live together in unity!  …It is like refreshing heavy dew on a desert mountain,
for there the Lord bestows His blessing, even life evermore.   
Psalm 133:1,3
O How Good It Is
O how good it is when the family of God dwells together in spirit, in faith and unity;
Where the bonds of peace, of acceptance and love, are the fruits of His presence here among us. 
So with one voice we’ll sing to the Lord, and with one heart we’ll live out His word
 ’til the whole earth sees the Redeemer has come, for He dwells in the presence of His people.
O how good it is on this journey we share to rejoice with the happy and weep with those who mourn;
For the weak find strength, the afflicted find grace when we offer the grace of belonging.
O how good it is to embrace His command, to prefer one another, forgive as He forgives. 
When we live as one, we all share in the love of the Son with the Father and the Spirit…..
