"You have come from afar
and waited long and are wearied;
Let us sit side by side
saring the same bread drawn from the same source
to quiet the same hunger that makes us weak.
Then standing together
let us share the same spirit, the same thoughts
that once again draw us together in friendship and unity and peace."
"Christianity is not, and never has been, a solitary faith. When one asks, 'Does one need to go to church to be a Christian?' he is putting the question the wrong way around. One might better say, 'If one is a Christian, will he not wish to unite with other Christians in public worship?'"
