on maintaining relationships in the body

of Christ.  this photo has been going around Facebook:

It made me wonder, could you imagine the level of UNITY we could have in the greater Body of Christ we could have if we were to follow this simple principle, or even just the idea of seeking to save a relationship over and against having to be right (or more right than another) all the time??

Now, please know, for all intents purposes, I am referring to general situations within the bounds of Historic Orthodox Christianity.  BUT… I wonder too to what level of effectiveness could we reach as the Body of Christ if we sought relationships with one another over worrying about being right, and even how might this impact our ability to impact the world as witnesses to the Risen Christ by the unity we display?

Just imagine that.   What do you think?
