Today I watched the dolphins corner a school of fish, leaping in small circles and capturing their prey. Sea birds circled above them, swooping down for fish that came too close to the surface, enjoying the ‘seconds’ from the dolphins’ hunt. They seemed to cooperate in a synchronized dance, working together in harmony as if they were one body. How beautiful it is when Christians work together in the same way, cooperating in the tasks they’ve assumed, deferring to one another, celebrating their united aims. I regret sometimes this unity seems far away. Forgive us, Father, when we cause strife and disharmony in your church; help us to work together with one another in Christian love and forgiveness. May we be part of the Dance of Love you’ve designed for us. Amen.
