    How do Pentecostals see Church Unity?   Dr. Mel Robeck, recipient of this year’s Consortium Award in Ecumenism and Figel Speaker on February 4:   “Pentecostals tend to spiritualize Jesus’ prayer for unity “that all of them may be one… ” (John 17:21)… They believe that what Jesus prayed for is already a reality wherever believers confess their faith in Jesus as Lord and Saviour. We are thus already united and are part of the same body. But I have never been convinced that that is the final answer. There must be something visible and tangible for the world to recognize that there is something different in the Church. In order to believe, the world must see something that points to their reconciliation… We have, therefore, to stress the importance of unity for the sake of mission.”  (from interview with Martin Hoegger)
