Views expressed arc those of the author. The One Church In speaking t n his .Jewish followers, Christ mnrie it very clear t h a i he hud not. come to them alone: "I have other sho.e.p that are not of t h i s fold ; I must brinK t h e m ·Iso, and they will heetl my voice. So t h n r e shall he one flock, one shepherd." (John 10:16) It is a tragic, t r a v e s t y of a u t h e n t i c C h r i s t i a n i t y t h a t m a n y a Christ i n n jfrnii| has seemed to lielieve t h a t Christ came to it alone, that is. t h a t it alone has'heen en- uhled correctly to hear and heed Christ's voice. There is no more infolentlile. self- Hghteonsnesfl, no prouder arrogance, t h a n for any group to claim, e i t h e r ly o n t r i i r h t Utterance or liy implication, t h a t it con- ptitutes the only "(rue Chuivh." - If Christ, is indeed t h e one shepherd, then all who heed his voice must c o n s t i t u t e the one flock of which he spoke. This flock contains m a n y f o l d s -- L u t h e r a n , A n g l i c a n , Methodist, Baptist, and dozens of others-but is nevertheless one flock. It fs one flock heoause every member of It is united to every other member by a common allegiance to the one shepherd. H* is the one. I.ord, the one Master, the one Saviour, who imparts the same Spirit to .everyone who heeds his voice. .The Spirit of Christ is the spirit of humility, forgiveness, love, brotherhood, lie who has humility knows that man is sinful and fallible and t h a t no one person or .sect dares clafrn to have the fully correct Interpretation of what the .voice of Jesus ·guys. He who fogives· does · not continue nourishing for past, quarrels. He who loves wants reconciliation and fellowship. C h r i s t i a n brotherhood is not nim- }ly the banding together of those who prefer the same mode of worshrp or agree on the. details of theology, but r a t h e r the k i n ship of all who trust in Christ as I.ord and Saviour. The various d e n o m i n a t i o n s have nmdc their distinctive contributions to Christian vwshfn, t h o u g h t , and practice. Our com- Rion Christian horitaw is richer because of the diversity m a n i f e s t e d in d e n n m i m i - tionalism. But diversity need not and ought not. to mean division. Of vastly greater importance thim i h ' s 'i-""si(y is the oneness of all who follow Christ. So let. us never lose sipht of the profound t r u t h thaMboiii.'h there are many churches there is one Church. Kvery Christian belong lo the Church Universal, the "hnlv Catholic Church." The significance of Ihe N a t i o n a l Council of Churches, the United C h r i s t i a n Y o u t h M o v e m e n t , 'ind the World Council of Churches is t h a t t h e y (five concrete, visible expression to the reality of the Church Universal. They enable, m a n y d e n o m i n a t i o n s lo share d i s t i n c - tive insights and to work together on common concerns. They enable Ihe churches t o confront the secular world w i t h a u n i t e d voice, a common Christian witness. They help to f u l f i l l the promise of the one shepherd t h a i his sheep sh«ll be one flock. W i l l i a m K. Cilisou.

"I've been ex- 'perting you for the last half hour." · She sat Jn n wing chair close to ;the sTnoulderhiR fire. Her hnir was 'white; her eyes, deep-set in discolored sockets; her mouth, drawn. JOnly the eyes themselves--large, d;irk, lu.stious--hinted at what she 'might have been in her youth. One 'hand held an ebony stick with an ivory handle. "I think you've made a mistake," began Basil, "Mistake?" She was displeased. Vein* as violet as her dress stood nut like earthworms coiled under the p k i n of the hand t h n t clenched the stick.

Before Ilia war, wasn't it? So much has happened since. For one thing, I'm no longer Kosamund Finlay." "You're married?" He was sur- prised. At 18 Rosamund Finlay had taken the small world of fashion by storm. Newspapers and maga/incs carried her fame outside that world until she became a popular symbol of beauty, gaiety and elegance. "Yes, I'm married." Rosamund hesitated. "Tlicrc's my husband. You know him? Thereon Yorke." She looked toward the other end of the room, at a stout, gray-haired man twice her age who stood bc- foro the lire with one hand on the white marble mantelpiece, "I've heard of him," said Basil. Theieon Ynrke belonged to an other world. During the twenties he had owned the most discreet s p c n k c a s y I n Manhattan. N o (rouble with police. No hint of the sordid or brutal.

"Then I'll have to ask you to excuse me while 1 explain to my host." "Dr. Zimmer? Better not Interrupt him while he's talking to Miss Shaw." Basil looked down the long room. The man who had welcomed him was approaching the blind woman still beside the flre. "Miss Shaw?" "Don't you know her?" Rosamund was disconcerted. "I thought, she spoke to you when yon" came in." "She mistook me for someone else," said Basil. "I didn't even know hpr name." "She is Katherine Shaw," explained Rosamund. "Very old, very lame, very blind and very rich. The man behind her is her nephew, Brinsley Shaw. The woman in gray on the other side is her companion, a Miss Dean. I dare-, say you know all the others." "Yours is the only familiar face." ; "Then I'll be your cicerone. The, sickly look ; ng man by the piano is i Stephen Lawrence." "The poet?"
