After Jesus' farewell speech, he offered a prayer (John 17:20-26).  Next to the Lord's Prayer, this is one of the most powerful prayers in the Bible.  The prayer asks of unity.  The prayer asks for ONEness in Spirit.  The prayer embraces every disciple in this ultimate "togetherness," (Jesus in God, God in Jesus, Jesus in us, we in Jesus)—all in the knowledge of our Holy Parent.  Next Sunday, we will explore further what this prayer offers.
