WHEN FELLOW CHRISTIANS are deeply divided on issues, if they center around the risen Christ with prayer, both verbal and silent, and celebrate the Eucharist together, the living presence of the Christ brings healing answers far deeper than we had dreamed.
—Flora Slosson Wuellner, Forgiveness the Passionate Journey: Nine Steps of Forgiving through Jesus’ Beatitudes (Upper Room Books, 2001)

The glory that you have given me I have given them, so that they may be one, as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become completely one, so that the world may know that you have sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.
—John 17:22-23 (NRSV)
