One nation, one people is the dream of our President, our Founding Fathers and our God. It is “we, the people” in this one nation who struggle with the concept of unity. In Christian tradition, we remember that Jesus prayed that we would be one. I believe Jesus prayed about it because he understood how hard it would be to achieve it. We have grown up in a world where the dividing lines we draw make diversity a chasm to cross instead of a divine construct to celebrate. The faith community should be leading in efforts to work together in making our love for our God and one another visible. Today the world primarily sees how we continue to divide over our differences. There are innumerable opportunities for the faith community to come together in unity, working together to eradicate hunger, visit the prisons, clothe the ones who have so little, and care for the sick. “We the people” are too busy disagreeing on whose responsibility it really is. I agree that it is time for sensitivity to the voice of God’s Spirit calling us to be one in the way we partner, in the way we seek to work together, and in the way we set aside differences to seek the common good.
