For your contemplation: “If the unity of Christians in One Body makes the Church a sign of God in the world, and if people tend unfortunately to conflict and division by reason of their weakness, selfishness and sin, then the will to reconciliation and pardon is necessary if the Church is to make God Visible in the world. Nor can this pardon, this communion in forgiveness, remain interior and invisible. It must be clearly manifest. So the mystery of the Church demands that Christians love one another in a visible and concrete way...Christ will not be visible to the world in His Church except in proportion as Christians seek peace and unity with one another and with all people. But since conflict is inevitable, unity cannot be maintained except in great difficulty, with constantly renewed sacrifice, with lucid honesty, openness, humility, the readiness to ask forgiveness and to forgive.” Thomas Merton

Saturday morning the “Birthday Bunch” from the United Methodist Church will gather for breakfast at the Longhorn in Airway Heights. The no-host birthday celebration begins at 9 a.m.
