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 ...

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 ...

I speak this morning as one of the ministers of my Church privileged and required
to preach under the Word of God. I speak as a minister ... But it does mean that
our separate organizations, however much we sincerely try to cooperate in
councils, present a tragically divided Church to a tragically divided world. Our

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
lineage" and did not give sufficient weight to these "connective positions." The
notion of the "unity ...

Both conflicts have an internal dimension, based on community divisions, and an
external one, based on nationalism and the desire for independence of the
Basque Country or the reunification of Ireland. The external dimensions differ in
important ways. The presence of an external reference point in the independent
Republic of Ireland and the memory of partition mark the politics of Irish
nationalism. While the Basque Country is also divided between two states (Spain
and France) ...

A brief 'Golden Square' coup by pro-Nazi officers was overcome as the British
once again entered the area. The Western allies employed Christian Assyrians
and Kurds in their drive against Nazi forces, and also used Iraq as a base for the
British part of the Anglo-Soviet invasion of Iran in 1941. When the war ended, the
entire region resembled anything but part of a Westphalian system. That was a
project that was taken up after the war, but done so alongside efforts for a greater
unity ...

Just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body
, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. For in the one Spirit we were all
baptized into one body — Jews or Greeks, slaves or free — and we were all
made to drink of one Spirit. (1 Cor 12:12-13 NRSV) There are varieties of gifts,
ministry, and working in the body of Christ, but there is also the unity of the same
Spirit, Lord, and God who inspires them all for the common good (1 Cor 12:4-7).
