Advent is a season that calls us to learn how to live in harmony with one another as we wait together for the promised coming.In Romans, Paul speaks of the oneness of like-minded believers as a means to accomplish God’s well. But this does not mean that we abandon our individuality. We are like the single notes on a musical scale and, when we are played together in Christ, we form a musical chord. But our harmony is impossible apart from Christ who calls us to act with one accord, to speak with one voice, to be in accord with one another.
