It is the love experienced
when Christ is at the center of one's life,
that draws us into unity.
We do not create unity or fellowship.
They are gifts.
When our lives are Christ-centered,
we can disagree
without being bitter or divisive.
It is a mark of the working of the Holy Spirit
that we can hold one another
in love and fellowship
there is diversity among us.
