Rosa Bonheur - Sultan and Rosette, arcangelo Corelli - Op 6 no.4 in D. Major, John Oxenham - In Christ there is No East or West

This painting by Rosa Bonhuer is almost comical in its contrasts.  What do you think she meant by the setting she chose?

Continuing on with Concerto Grosso by Arcangelo Corelli we have  Op. 6 No. 4 in D Major today.  It is filled with energy.  Again today, you can watch the musicians perform.  

If you want to listen to the complete Concerto Grosso as background music this week the link is here.

         John Oxenham
In Christ There is No East or West

In Christ there is no East or West,
  In Him no South or North,
But one great Fellowship of Love
  Throughout the whole wide earth.

In Him shall true hearts everywhere
  Their high communion find.
His service is the golden cord
  Close-binding all mankind.

Join hands then, Brothers of the Faith,
Whatever your race may be!--
Who serves my Father as a son
  Is surely kin to me.

In Christ now meet both East and West,
  In Him meet South and North,
All Christly souls are one in Him,
  Throughout the whole wide earth.
