Reflection: John 17: 21

Here’s a thoughtful reflection on Christian Unity inspired by John 17:21.  It was written by Thom Shuman.

Maybe
(inspired by John 17:21)

“I am not praying only for these,
but for all those who will believe in me through their message,
that they may all be one.” John 17:21


we would be one

if that place
across the street
   would stop braggin'
   about all its
              missions;

if those big box
        entertainmentplexes
      would realize
      how serious worship
           must be;

if others
      would recognize
    that certain doctrines
         just can't be
         compromised;

if everyone
      would just stop
            fighting
        over the questions
        we already have
               answered.

we could be one
                if
       it wasn't for
  us.
