Jesus prayed at least one thing for all believers ever… unity.

In a time full of change, loss, uncertainty, opinions, etc., how we help people to come together instead of divide?

Let’s get really practical with one another.  What can we DO to pursue and lead to unity? In our family,… church, city, and world.

Here is a quick, 3-part invitation to pursue unity along with insight from a few friends.

  • Post your favorite Scripture and very best ACTION to pursue unity in the comments.
  • Get curious… talk with your people (family, friends, neighbors) about how something you likely disagree about! Practice listening, getting curious and considering God in the conversation.
  • Tell a close friend the current issue or concern you are MOST passionate about. Ask their help and support in you pursuing unity especially around this issue.
  • Sit as a family at dinner and make a list of issues on which you agree or disagree. Talk about how you can pursue unity as a family.

    Hi Drew-
    I package this a little differently. In Hebrews 13:17 the scripture says, Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they keep watch over your souls as those who will give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with grief, for this would be unprofitable for you. May our unity flow as we follow the leaders at Canyon Ridge.

  • I have enough years on me to understand how the unity of the people God has placed on my path throughout my life…….Different churches, different cities, different jobs……….has gotten me through some mighty difficult situations that could have destroyed me if it had not been the unity and love of those who took the time to invest in me. I’ve always tried to pass that forward. To be an encourager, to listen to them when they share and then followup to see how they are doing and reminding them how much they are loved. To reach out….By listening, it usually leads to prayer…..I want everyone at our church to feel welcome and that they belong to a family who loves them……….

    The world will know Jesus when they see perfect unity in us, his church. John 17:23. Not that we must be uniform, but if He is in me, I should be reflecting a common spirit of unity characterized by other believers.
