Nothing New

From the beginning unity among Christians has eluded many. Jesuit Father Nicholas King, University of Oxford tutor in Biblical Studies, put it, “[D]iversity is difficult.”
Using the letter St. Paul wrote to the fractious community in Corinth, Father King lists, in contemporary English, the getting-it-right solutions the Apostle offered: 
‘get Jesus’ cross right’...‘get their apostles right’...‘getting your head right’...‘getting the Lord’s Supper right’...‘getting the body right’...‘getting your heart right.’
Father King distilled this article from his a lecture at the close of the Week of Christian Unity. He considered the problem of Christian disunity and St. Paul’s attempt to solve it. The video of his 60-minute lecture is below.
