Church Unity

Sometimes, simply allowing scripture to speak is the best approach to tackling a subject. Why don’t you read the following words, very slowly, and then imagine a church community living this to the max. After a few minutes revisit that imaginary church but include yourself in the mix and see what impact it has upon how you think, feel and act:

12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. 13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity  – Col 3:12-14
