Greetings and peace be with you Bro Hulk,
Hulk; Greetings Bro Eric H,
Being looked on as a Bro despite all our differences, is a great blessing.
Unity and the ‘Oneness of God’ are a profound subject.
When I look at the struggle for unity in my marriage, we have far more that we disagree about, than we have things we can agree on, yet somehow we have been together nearly thirty years. At times I struggle to understand how we are still together, yet something keeps us coming back for more.
We have the same problems in Christianity, we are all stubbornly right in our beliefs, and this separates all the Christian denominations, you do things your way; and I will do things God’s way. But none of us truthfully knows the mind of God.
Put a dozen Catholics in a room and there will be disagreements about our faith, but we tend to tolerate these differences more; because we all have the same label.
The unity that inspires me the most, is when people with great differences; work together for a good cause. I have been a Street Pastor for nearly six years, and this brings Christians of eight denominations together, we pray with each other, and we pray for each other.
I would like to see some kind of interfaith initiative that would do the same kind of thing.
In the spirit of searching for the ‘Oneness of God’
