ONE: It’s What Jesus Prayed For

Jesus frequently taught His listeners using stories. The Bible is filled with lots stories — both positive and negative. Why? Because stories are a powerful medium that will impact the thinking of hearers and readers.

In John 17, the night before He went to the cross, Jesus prayed that His followers would be one. Is that even possible? This story might just change your thinking.

And although this is a fictional story, you’ll be amazed as you read true accounts that really happened:

  • A church building that was literally split down the middle by an earthquake.
  • A pastor whose life was threatened by drug dealers.
  • Christians who saved a city a half-million dollars per year.
  • A mean-spirited woman intentionally causing division in a congregation.
  • A pastor who sends a family to another congregation.
  • A spat that happened in 1529… that still affects the Church today.
  • Fellow-believers standing with one another through difficult times.
  • And so much more.
