The Self-Denial of Spiritual Unity

The Self-Denial of Spiritual Unity Text: Philippians 2:2-4 In a letter to Archbishop Cranmer in April 1552, John Calvin wrote of his vision of church unity. “Amongst the greatest evils of our century must be counted the fact that the churches are so divided one from another that there is scarcely even a human relationship between us; at all events there is not the shining…

5 Heart-Moving Incentives for Unity

5 Heart-Moving Incentives for Unity Text: Philippians 2:1 I think we would all agree that if we want to be better, it’s best to learn from those who are better.
