The all-embracing Spirit is the unity of all freed spirits. He effects the freedom of the soul’s powers, which now flow toward one another, without remaining dependent on sympathy or antipathy, on the states of the body. The Spirit dominates the uniting of men, and takes into His sphere all material goods. Where freedom, purity and the love of God reign; where Christ lives in the individuals; where His Spirit unfolds all gifts and powers, there grows a living unity which can only be seen as one body.- Eberhard Arnold

Salt and Light
Your life will have a kind of perfection, although you will not be a saint. The perfection will consist in this: you will be very weak and you will make many mistakes; you will be awkward, for you will be poor in spirit and hunger and thirst for justice. You will not be perfect, but you will love. This is the gate and the way. Whatever you desire for yourself, wish the same for others. If you expect something from people, give the same to them. There is nothing greater than love. There is nothing more holy than love. There is nothing more true than love, nothing more real. So let us hand our lives over to love and seal the bond of love.

The discipline of God’s Church is the most careful marriage chastity. First and foremost it means unstained purity before marriage and outside of marriage. Yet also in a very serious and definite way this discipline means the right mutual choice of spouses, on the basis of their natural but even more their spiritual calling for one another. One marries the one human being who is destined for one from eternity.- Eberhard Arnold
True community of marriage can move only from unity of spirit through the emotional into the physical. It can live, therefore, only in faithfulness, only and solely in steadfast, everlasting unity. This is possible only under the rulership of the Spirit. Only out of this can physical purity be desired. Only when the emotions are ruled by the Spirit can freeing and purification become reality.- Eberhard Arnold
