that all of them might be one'.” Stuart Bell, Senior Pastor, Alive Church and
Leader, Ground Level network “In a dangerously divided world, we need the
constant reminder of the blessings of unity and reconciliation. The real inspiration
of this book is the personal commitment of the author over many years to bring

love and unity as his people engaged together in his mission as his sent ones (
John 20:21). Our Moment The Cape Town Commitment states my own
conclusion: “A divided church has no message for the divided world.”7 Our failure
to live the shared life that I have called missionalecumenism is not a minor
problem that we can ignore for another day. It is a “major obstacle” that hinders
us in ways that we do not begin to comprehend. The problem in the West is
evident. Our blindness is ...

I.1 Our ecumenical goal is a unity in and with diversity. On the one hand, this
implies that unity must not be confused with uniformity. Uniformism obscures the
vast richness of the church and deprives us of God's profuse gifts to his people in
the Spirit. On the other hand, ecclesial diversity should not be equated with static
pluralism or mere coexistence. Unity requires visible manifestations—in order
that the world shall see and believe. And it includes a continual growth in

One God, one people of God. The unity of God's people is a significant theme in
the Bible, as seen in the previous chapter. It is not simply that “it's nice when we
can all get on well together.” It is the profoundly missional truth that, out of the
fractured nations of humanity, scattered and divided since the tower of ... The
Cape Town Commitment of the Lausanne Movement recognizes this missional
element of the unity of God's people: A divided church has no message for a
divided world.

It is the air of the land of Israel that makes one wise, that illuminates the soul to
enlighten that element which is derived from the world of unity. In the land of
Israel, one draws upon the light of Jewish wisdom, upon that quality of spiritual
life which is unique to the people of Israel, upon the Jewish world-view and way
of life, which are essentially derived from the dominance of the world of unity over
the divided world. And it is on this basis that idolatry is blotted out, together with
all of 171 ...

In this regard the writer in Ephesians 4:3, urged the saints to keep the unity of the
spirit in the bond of peace because there is a relationship between unity and
peace. ... Unity therefore is itself an instrument of witness in a divided world. Unity

can be sustained: there is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to the
one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of

If one found that the role of "boss" is thought of in terms of an elder brother's role,
one could assume that the terms "boss" and "brother" are being used as
mediators between distinct, separate, and perhaps contradictory social domains.
... but remain members of it (Radcliffe-Brown 1952:chap. 3). Radcliffe-Brown's
explanation was inadequate in that it chose to emphasize "the unity of the
