How do we maintain love and unity?
This is supposedly one of the oldest queries still in use in Friends' books of Faith and Practice.
In meeting for worship the other day, I was wondering especially about how do we do this.
What methods of communication do we use?
What trespasses do we forgive?
What do we just ignore in order to maintain love and unity among us?
Like a baby with the hiccups in meeting for worship?
Like things/people we don't want to deal with?
And in my family specifically, how do we maintain love and unity among us?
What does that take?
How do we do it?
How well do we do it?
Several blog posts have responded to this question before I posted it:
