Christian unity--already/not yet

The January 2012 issue of Baptists Today (vol. 30, no. 1) includes in its Quotation Remarks section on p. 8 a quote from me: "Christians already possess unity in that they belong to the one body of Christ and are indwelt by one Spirit. But as the current divisions of the church attest, this unity is not yet fully realized, for its fullness is not visible." --Steven R. Harmon, Baptist theologian and author of Ecumenism Means You, Too: Ordinary Christians and the Quest for Christian Unity (Cascade Books), urging participation in the Jan. 18-25 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity promoted by the World Council of Churches

The quote is extracted from a forthcoming Associated Baptist Press opinion article scheduled for publication later this month; details will be posted on Ecclesial Theology when the full article appears.
