“I have given them the glory that you gave me... so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me." John 17:22 Jesus says that it is the unity of the church that will lead to a revelation of God's love to the world. Unity and mission are tied.

"I consider Western Christianity in its practical working a negation of Christ's Christianity." - Mahatma Gandhi Is he right? Somewhere inside of every single one of us, we long for a place where we are loved and can love others. Jesus describes a community whose love is so authentic and so visible that people will look at it from the outside and recognise the truth of Jesus.
