One Church, indivisible: Aimee's blog from Crete

Once every five years or so, a group of about 120 men and women, pastors, laypersons, academics, and church leaders get together to talk about the issues that still divide the churches. It's called the Faith and Order Plenary Commission, and its next meeting will take place at the Orthodox Academy of Crete, Greece, 7-13 October 2009.oac

This year, I've been invited to go. 

And I'm writing a blog.

A big-enough boat

Thursday, Oct. 15, 2009

On Monday, we took a group photo. Someone had used chalk to draw the outline of a huge boat on the ground, and we were supposed to stand within it.

But it wasn’t big enough for all of us.

It was a funny moment when, at this meeting promoting Christian unity, we discovered there wasn’t enough room in the boat for everyone to fit. We made a circle instead.

Here’s to the day when we truly have a boat big enough for everyone.

(And here's the photo - just click twice on the left-hand arrow. I'm dead center.)
