God created a beautiful diverse world and the crown of his creation, humanity, is also beautifully diverse! But in a world broken by sin, our differences have also led to tragic evils and injustice. In the following weeks, we will have a variety of voices proclaim God’s truth about our diverse humanity. As followers of Jesus we offer our most profound contribution: the gospel message of reconciliation and renewal through Christ. And then we seek to model and live out the beautiful diversity of God’s family. We have already been given a glimpse of that family in the vision the Apostle John had when he saw a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. That is where this is going…so let’s get to work embracing the beauty of God’s family!
