the restoration of community

The Trinity is unity in diversity; the Trinity is our model for community.

When I think of the phrase The Coming of the Kingdom it means to me a restoration of community, the healing of brokenness which will enable us to rejoice once more in being one – not solitary, isolated one, but whole, body, intellect, spirit at peace; mind, heart, intuition in collaboration.

There are those who do not want this wholeness, who want to continue the process of fragmentation, and this has to be fought, with Michael and his angels by our side. If we care about wholeness, about unity in diversity, we are in battle.”

- Madeleine L’engle, The Irrational Season, 1977.
