Well Songwriters: ROGER COOK, ROGER GREENAWAY wrote a song for Blue Mink called Melting Pot, the chorus goes like this:
What we need is a great big melting pot,
Big enough enough enough to take,
The world and all its got
And keep it stirring for a hundred years or more,
And turn out coffee coloured people by the score.
Well the oneness of the church, it doesn’t look anything like that, oneness is something that doesn’t come about by us being made into the same race of people, by being mixed up into a standard pattern so that we are all the same. Oneness in God comes from us having the same focus, us all wanting to bring glory to our Saviour, to him who through his willingness to carry our burdens to set us free, gave us freedom.
