Seek unity

May 7, 2016

  Here in the U.S., our presidential election cycle is revealing some deep divisions in our country.  We all want this to be a wonderful place to live, but our opinions vary widely on how best to get to that goal. 
  Jesus, in his prayer to God before his arrest and trial, prays that we (his followers) would be one.  As we are one, we would reflect the love God and Jesus have and show forth that love to the world. 
   How are we called to live out this oneness, this love, in a such a world?
   Gospel reading;  John 17:20-26
