The gospel reading is John 17:20-26

We can never call one another “brother”
until we have learned to call God “Father.”

Bishop Fulton J. Sheen

There are enough targets to aim at
without firing at each other.

Theodore Roosevelt,

The discords of Christianity
have drowned the finest strains of music
in the human soul.

Peter Ainslie

If your heart is where my heart is,
give me your hand.

John Wesley
* * * * * * * * * *

“Wesley was wise when he said, ‘If your heart is as my heart, give me your hand.’
He didn’t say, ‘If your head is as my head give me your hand.’
When there is heart agreement in loyalty to Christ,
we can put up with a lot of lesser disagreements.
These lesser disagreements must be expected and provided for–
and overlooked

E. Stanley Jones, In Christ
