‘Behold how good and pleasant it is, to dwell together in unity.’ (Psalm 133.1)
The benefits of unity are obvious, the result of disunity disastrous. Sadly we daily meet with examples of conflicts that produce results that are far from ‘good and pleasant’. Even being at one with yourself can be a challenge. Unity is not incompatible with diversity, but we shall not enjoy it unless we care deeply enough for one another, and for ourselves (‘love your neighbour as yourself’).
