So that they may be one

     Jesus prays: So that they may be one just as You are in Me, Father, and I am in You.  But for us it is too difficult.  We can ascertain it on every day basis.  Continuously quarreled, denigrating, disparaging, envious, and full of contempt.  To be one we are missing -- everything.
     Is it possible to be as one at all, if each and every one of us is different?  It is!  Through tolerance and mutual respect.  Through help instead of harm.  Through kindness instead of stubbornness.  Through forbearance instead of revenge.
