One God, One Church

On the Lord's Day the Rector Emeritus kindly preached for me on Ephesians 4. I would be away on holiday if our car did not have a sudden and probably terminal illness.

I was struck more forcefully than I remember by the connection between God and his church. Since God is one (and many!) so is the church. The unity of the church is complete and indestructable at one level. Our many churches, whilst they are a painful scandal proclaiming false gods, cannot touch the essential unity of the people of God and the work of redemption, for the praise of the Father's glory, in Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit.
