Hear the full audio of “On Christian Unity“
Seventeenth Sunday after Trinity, 8 October 2017
The “one, holy, Christian and apostolic Church,” we believe, is indivisible. Unity in the Church is not ours to accomplish, the result of human effort or wisdom. Rather, Christian unity is God’s own gift and work for us in Christ. The oneness Paul preaches is never ours to build by our own ingenuity, effort or power. Christian Unity remains the solitary handiwork of one Spirit through the pure preaching of God’s Word and the right administration of His Sacraments.
