40 DAYS – Time with God – Day 6
A Celebration of Diversity
by Mike Muller
The Church is not a place where giftedness and God’s creative purposes are stifled under a kind of communism. Rather, there is a tension that must be recognised and held onto: On the one hand, what we have received and share in, and on the other, how different we are from one another in gifts and callings.
Diversity will always be part of the Church; along the lines of education, colour, wealth, nationality, language and even culture, to name a few areas. But we have to take a good look at what makes us different from one another and consider whether those differences are being used to divide or to unite.
