At the Lord's Table (on Unity)

Preston Yancey is hosting a beautiful series on the church called #ATLT, At the Lord's Table: A Conversation, and today I have the privilege of being a contributor. My piece is on unity. I hope you're as moved reading it as I was writing it. Please stick around on Preston's site to read others' posts on the church. 

That They May Be One
“The glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me.”
- John 17:23, ESV

The first time I felt the glory of God, I was at a small Catholic church in Mesa, Arizona. A black woman—a bellowing alto—sang “Amazing Grace” while I wept under the power of a Jesus I did not yet know.

Years later, after believing and committing to this Jesus, I worshipped Him at a charismatic prayer gathering in London, England. I knew little about the gifts of the Holy Spirit, but a girl prophesied God’s response to questions I had asked Him in quiet desperation earlier that day. I came to know Jesus as a responsive God.
