Unity Amid Diversity

Just a short quick post on Unity within the church.

If you are reading my posts you are seeing this theme. I was thrilled to see this article in the Christian Index. I hope you will read it.

Here are a couple of excerpts:

3 Churches worshiping together“It was humbling to me,” Collins said, “to know that we can meet under one roof in a world that seems so disunified right now. We came together as one people and worshiped Jesus Christ. . .”

The different-yet-same theme was probably best exemplified during worship. Zion Baptist worship leader Wayne Rickard led familiar songs such as “Give Thanks With a Grateful Heart” and “Amazing Grace.” Everyone sang in his or her own language.

“I saw one person crying, saying she’d never experienced anything like this. Others told me the same thing. They thanked us for loving them, making them feel welcome, and helping them worship in their native language. When one pastor spoke, the other groups could see the translation on the screen behind him so we could all hear the message.”

  1. Ephesians 4:4 -6 (NKJV)
    4 There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

    1. Amen, Shayne. And I suppose that we, in the church, are so hard headed that we will not learn this (by-in-large) until we face more prolific persecution. I say, good for this church, showing the way.
      Miss you man!
