Brothers and sisters in Christ,
I bring you greetings from the Pennsylvania Council of Churches and your 41 partners in seeking Christian unity for the sake of the world. Our member church bodies pray and worship together, witness in the halls of government, and minister to travelers, farmworkers, and campers across Pennsylvania. We do this because we understand that God’s church is one, because God gifts us with unity in Jesus Christ.
I wish to say a few words about that unity, the unity for which Jesus prayed and that God calls us to make incarnate.
