Call to unity

Jesus frequently preaches unity to his followers. His preaching is a reaction to the story of Adam and Eve, which represents a fracturing of our unity with God and creation–a fracturing which continues into the present day, even as we try to get back to our initial unity with God.

We need such reminders because of the disunity we see in so many ways in the world around us. We need to be called continually to care for each other and for the earth given to us as our home.

Religion is no stranger to disunity. From early church disputes and persecutions to modern-day conflict between and within Christian denominations, we need to listen to the words of Jesus, who calls us to be one, just as he and the Father are one.

Jesus reminds us that we are all loved, that we are all called to be one in Christ. No one is excluded. All are welcome. We pray for the grace to live out our calling to seek unity, to show the love of Christ to the world.

“I pray…for those who will believe in me…so that they may all be one, as you, Father, are in me and I in you, that they also may be in us.” (John 17:21)

  1. So beautiful and so true! What would the world be like if we were all unified? It would be amazing! No one would be left to figure things out by themselves, but would have caring and patient people to help, and in turn, they could help others. What a wonderful world that would be!
