A million dreams inspired Phineas T Barnum to create “The Greatest Show On Earth,” filled with wonders like the Feejee Mermaid and General Tom Thumb. These, of course, were hoaxes, but Barnum believed in attracting and pleasing the public, not duping them. He described himself as The Greatest Showman and he certainly attracted and pleased a great audience.
The theme of Salvation and Wholeness continues this Easter Sunday, April 21, with our congregation’s traditional Flower Communion, and an expectation of a million dreams come true!
I close my eyes and I can see
A world that’s waiting up for me
That I call my own.
Through the dark, through the door,
Through where no one’s been before,
But it feels like home.
They can say, they can say it all sounds crazy.
They can say, they can say I’ve lost my mind.
I don’t care, I don’t care, so call me crazy.
We can live in a world that we design.
‘Cause ev’ry night I lie in bed
The brightest colors fill my head.
A million dreams are keeping me awake.
I think of what the world could be,
A vision of the one I see.
A million dreams is all it’s gonna take.
Oh, a million dreams for the world we’re gonna make!
