New Lutheran Quote of the Day
True ecumenicalism involves a unity with the Spirit among individuals who are "sanctified in truth" (John 17:19). It doesn't involve compromises with teachings and opinions that contain both truth and error. Neither can it involve organizing societies that are far from sanctified in the truth. Real unity in Christ cannot be organized. It is created by God when we become living members of His body. However, nothing should stop Christ's members from serving one another with the kind of unity and love Christ expects. -- Bishop Bo Giertz, To Live with Christ, p. 338.
