Would it not be possible to become of one heart and mind and to discover a unity? Can we live together, and together touch the Divine?Writing in the ancient desert tradition of short meditations on a spiritual theme, Bishop Seraphim Sigrist explores what community means and how unity among human beings is truly possible. With insight drawn from Fr. Alexander Men and other theologians of the Orthodox tradition, as well as his own long-term involvement in supporting religious communities in Russia and America, he offers his readers a cultured and complex weave of Christian insight.
