OF ONE HEART, THOUGH NOT OF ONE OPINION
The appeal of John Wesley in A Catholic Spirit needs to be embraced today

"But although a difference in opinions or modes of worship may prevent an entire external union, yet need it prevent our union in affection? Though we cannot think alike, may we not love alike? May we not be of one heart, though we are not of one opinion? Without all doubt, we may. Herein all the children of God may unite, notwithstanding these smaller differences. These remaining as they are, they may forward one another in love and in good works."

-- John Wesley in his sermon, "A Catholic Spirit"
