Carry each other

My friend Miriam recently helped launch a ministry and posted this introductory video:

We'd like to encourage you to find ways to help the women and children of broken families. Support can come in many forms — but what really matters is your willingness to give of yourself. For more information please visit our website at http://www.onep3.com/.

Carry Each Other
Aaron Niequist

Life is not meant to live, on shoulders and shins —
All alone. It’s too heavy to hold.
We need the arms of a friend, again and again —
To be strong, and walk with us ahead.

Love is not meant to live, on tongues and on lips —
All alone, we need to let our love show
In how we give and we hope, and make His way known —
Redemption’s calling!

If we are a temple — then I am a stone
If we are a body — then I am a bone
If we are community — then I’m not alone
I’m not alone, and you’re not alone,
We’re not alone...
We've gotta carry each other!

God has made us to be a new family —
Of His blood, for eternity.
From every nation and name, the call is the same —
Love and unity!
