That we all may be one, Easter 2020

The line “In essentials, unity; in nonessentials, liberty; in all things, charity” has been used to articulate what the Church strives for since 1617.

Jesus prays that his followers may be one as he and the Father are one. Which I’ve always heard with a mournful tone as the Church is so often not one. Right now, as Churches are open so differently and we are learning new answers to the question of how we are a community, this prayer of Jesus sounds both mournful and newly hopeful. We are one, in our love of Jesus.

I worked most closely with John 17.1-11.
