Unity

Does anyone want unity? I mean do we want unity in the Church? Do we want unity in our civil discourse? The Bible makes unity a priority. 
Most people in power seem to use the word ‘Unity’ to mean ‘Just agree with me’. For that matter, marriage seems to suffer from the same dynamic. Couples have different last names, separate bank accounts, separate friends… Separate lives really. No wonder divorce is so easy. 

Churches split, denominations splinter. 

Political parties seem to exist only for the sake of division. 
The media throws gasoline on the passionate,  igniting fires of rage. Then  reports on the resulting conflagration breathlessly. 

Americans must make unity a priority. If we don’t, we will collapse under the weight of Identity Politics where everyone has a grievance against somebody.
