Friday May 17th, John 17: 20-23 The goal is for all of them to become one heart and mind— Just as you, Father, are in me and I in you, So they might be one heart and mind with us.  We often confuse being of one heart and mind with being in agreement on all the unimportant issues that we feel are important.  If everyone agreed, even in Heaven, then eternity would be a mighty long long boring time.  One could argue that this kind of heaven wouldn't even be heaven but would itself be hell.   Disagreeing is different than dissing; Washington has seemed to have lost that lesson.  Being one in heart and mind is like being in love, wanting the best for the other even if you can’t agree where to go out to eat on one particular evening or which candidate to vote for.  It is caring for one another in spite of our differences.  It is what makes life alive and love real and throws a conflict in there once in a while for spice.  Be of one heart and one mind, in Christ, but give it some spice for life.
