How many churches of Jesus Christ are there in the greater Pittsburgh area? Before you start counting the churches around you, think of this. There is ONE church of Jesus Christ in Pittsburgh, in the United States, in the world. But we surely have a divided Christendom that is challenged by the words of Jesus: “that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you.” (John 17:21) The call to unity in the Body of Christ was highlighted at the Second Vatican Council (1962-65) in the Decree on Ecumenism. Since that time much progress has occurred in the way we Christians look upon each other as brothers and sisters in Christ. Strong differences in doctrine, leadership and worship practices still exist. But there is more mutual tolerance and understanding which encourage us to let go of fears and prejudices, and to stress what unites us rather than what divides us. Come share your understanding of unity in the Body of Christ.
