2018 Annual Conference Worship Request 

To enhance the Opening Worship service at this year's Annual Conference sessions, we are seeking visual images: original artwork, photographs, and more. Choose a line from the hymn "For Everyone Born" (see lyrics below) and find a way to creatively and visually represent that text.

We welcome scans of artwork created by children and/or by adults. We also welcome digital photographs (if you feature people in your photos, please seek their permission before submitting). For copyright reasons, please do not include any images that are not your own (i.e.: images that you find through internet searches).

Please send all submissions to lcotman@epaumc.org by May 31 . 
Thank you for your offerings--they will help us experience this hymn in new and meaningful ways!

Thank you, from your Worship Co-Coordinators:
Rev. Monica Guepet and Rev. Candy LaBar
"For Everyone Born"

1. For everyone born, a place at the table,
for everyone born, clean water and bread,
a shelter, a space, a safe place for growing,
for everyone born, a star overhead.
And God will delight
when we are creators of justice
and joy, compassion and peace;
yes, God will delight
when we are creators of justice,
justice and joy.
2.  For woman and man, a place at the table,
revising the roles, deciding to share,
with wisdom and grace, dividing the power,
for woman and man, a system that's fair. 
3.   For young and for old, a place at the table,
a voice to be heard, a part in the song,
the hands of a child in hands that are wrinkled,
for young and for old, the right to belong. 
4.   For just and unjust, a place at the table.
abuser, abused, with need to forgive,
in anger, in hurt, a mind-set of mercy,
for just and unjust, a new way to live. 

  For everyone born, a place at the table,
to live without fear, and simply to be,
to work, to speak out, to witness and worship,
for everyone born, the right to be free.
