Before His sacrifice in the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus prayed that God’s children might be one, as the Father and Son were one (John 17:20–23). Central to that unity, Richards explains, is humanity’s obligation "to recognize, love, and lift each other in and because of our diversity."

"He prayed for our unity. He prayed for us to love one another."
