Quotes to Consider:

John Calvin: "Nothing flows away so easily as love. We cannot be Christians without being brethren."

Thomas Watson: "The saints are the walking pictures of God. If God be our Father, we shall love to see His picture of holiness in believers; shall pity them for their infirmities, but love them for their graces ... It may justly be suspected that God is not Father of those who love not His children. Though they retain the communion of saints in their creed, they banish the communion of saints out of their company."
