A Celebration of Diversity

by Mike Muller

Bible text(s)

14For the body itself is not made up of only one part, but of many parts.

1 Corinthians 12:14GNBOpen in Bible reader

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.
