Christian Unity Week, January 18-25

path2014A few years ago another sister and I planted two tiny trees at Lial Renewal Center. They’re still there and taller. When we planted them I didn’t place bets on their survival, but there seems to be a chance for full growth someday. Nelson Henderson wrote, “The true meaning of life is to plant trees under whose shade you do not expect to sit.”  I doubt that I will ever sit under the shade of those two trees, and I have other doubts.  In this week for Christian Unity I doubt that all Christian churches will become one in my lifetime. Yet you and I can “plant trees” of ecumenism. Do something this week to promote Christian unity. Research another Christian faith. Attend a prayer service. Join other Christians in a service project. Pray that one day we’ll all sit in the shade of God’s one love for all people
