As the early church began, members of the body were connected in ways beyond what we see today. The shared everything always. The prayed and sang together always. They ate together always. They gave everything they had. They loved richly, deeply, fully. They were one, as they knew that God had made them one.
Can't go too long without a song by my favorite band. The is U2's song, "One," to remind us that we need each other.
