“I Pray that All of Them Might Be”

July 2, 2018

The Rev. James P. Nolte and I were in school together. Recently he wrote this, and it’s with his expressed and gracious permission that I share it with you here —

Why does every issue that faces us in our nation have to be “either or”? It can be “both and.” 

This, in a nutshell, is what is wrong with politics in the USA today.

We have been so polarized that we have become paralyzed.

— That last line applies other places as well.

Like, oh, in some churches.

And in entire denominations.

Painfully true: We have been so polarized that we have become paralyzed.

By contrast, “I pray that all of them may be one.”

Jesus said that in John 17.

What a contrast: unity vs. polarized & paralyzed.

In light of our Lord’s prayer for our unity, what about our beliefs and actions might you and I change today?

Amazingly, we can help answer Christ’s prayer!

Or…we can stay polarized and paralyzed.

What’s it gonna be?
