I can remember a story about a man stranded on an island who was finally found. His rescuers asked him about the three huts they say on the island. He pointed and said, "This one is my home and that one is my church." He then pointed to the third hut: "That was my former church." This story may seem funny, it does highlight a concern about unity among believers.

Where ever differences exist, so does friction. Unity already exists because believers because they share one body, one Spirit, one hope, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and certainly one God and Father of all.

How does one "keep the unity"? It can be done simply expressing our different opinions and convictions with lowliness,gentleness, and patience. This attitude will give us the power to react in love toward those with whom we disagree.
