Lewis: the coming of union

Thursday, June 11, 2020
    Feast of Barnabas the Apostle
How good and pleasant it is
    when brothers live together in unity!
    —Psalm 133:1 (NIV)
    I sometimes have a bright dream of reunion engulfing us unawares, like a great wave from behind our backs, perhaps at the very moment when our official representatives are still pronouncing it impossible. Discussions usually separate us; actions sometimes unite us.
    ... C. S. Lewis (1898-1963), Letters to Malcolm: Chiefly on Prayer, New York: Harcourt Brace and World, 1964, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2002, p. 16 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 133:1; Acts 4:32; 1 Cor. 1:10; Phil. 1:27; 2:1-2; 1 Pet. 3:8
Quiet time reflection:
    The world separates; You, Lord, unite.
