Band of Brothers – Bond of Peace – Church Unity – Sermon – January 06 2008

How Important is Unity within the Church?  How important is Unity with each other? Does God ask us to build each other up?  Every Member in the Church Body is Important, for they each have a gift and a function created by God.  This is so well illustrated by William Shakespeares’ play Henry the Fifth, when the British are in a battle with the Great French Army, and the British are highly outnumbered, the French are well supplied, and the British are temporarily cowering in fear, and the King shares his famous Saint Crispens Day speech with his friend Westmoreland. (just a part of the speech below)

“But we in this day we shall be remembered,
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in England now-a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs’d they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day.”
