Testimony of Unity

Unity is found is God’s will.  If we are divided, when we listen in the Spirit together, the way forward will become clear.

Listen patiently and seek the truth which people’s opinions may contain for you.

Cultivate affectionate regard and mutual care for each other.

Do not allow the strength of your convictions to betray you into making statements or allegations that are unfair or untrue. That are unfair or untrue.  It is possible that you may be mistaken.
