Praying and Working for Unity of the Body

handsEphesians 4:1-6:  I therefore, the prisoner in the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of the calling to which you have been called, 2with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, 3making every effort to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to the one hope of your calling, 5one Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6one God and Father of all, who is above all and through all and in all.

As we contemplate, pray and work for unity in the Body of Christ, both locally and globally, let us be informed about the Commission on the Way Forward.   Below is a link to an updated report, which the Commission gave to the Council of Bishops recently.  Please know that the report is in no way final, and the Commission will give an update again in May.    Be on the lookout for information about the Commission on the Columbia District web and the Columbia District Facebook.
