Holistic unity is fourfold: 1) unity with God, 2) unity within ourselves, 3) unity with others and 4) unity with creation. The Father’s pleasure to “gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth” (Eph. 1:10) embraces these four modes of unity. The first place where this unity is manifested is in the second movement of the Liturgy in which the worshipers assemble in unity with God, themselves, others and creation. Thus the Church, as the “assembly” or “congregation,” in her various ecclesiastical functions, operates as the microcosm of holistic unity on behalf of all creation. In this sense, each jurisdiction of Basileia is a microcosm of the holistic unity that is the Father’s pleasure to manifest in the whole of heaven and earth.
