With Pentecost and the weeks that follow, we have a number of themes that touch on the word, “One.” We are One in the Spirit. Together we worship the One True God, who has revealed Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, the living and eternal God. We are a part of One Family of Faith, privileged to call God our Heavenly Father. We are reminded that we are One in Faith as we learn about the Augsburg Confession, one of the foundational doctrinal statements of the Protestant Reformation (1530). The nexus of the unity we share is that our God has drawn us to His Son, the One who gave Himself on the cross to make us one forgiven and redeemed people of God, living and thriving within the grace He has showered upon us.
