I’m thinking about unity and diversity. People within my church denomination don’t all have the same view on some of the ways we live out our faith. We each see the world through our unique mindset and our individual spiritual experience. In our grouping of Friends (Quakers) we join with other Christians on the common ground of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as lord and savior. It was more than 1,500 years ago that Augustine said, "In essentials, unity. In non-essentials, liberty. In all things, love." This works great as long as I’m the one who gets to decide what is essential and what in non-essential.
