Psalms 133:1-3. Taking unity as the absence of division and the bonding of a shared purpose, how is my church doing? How can I more fully do my part?

II John 1:1-13. Verse 9, what's the distinct identity of the Father and the Son, as best I know them? What office does each fulfill in my Christian life? Action point?
Mark 11:20-26. Have I been missing out on the connection between forgiving others and receiving what I pray for?
