Tribe and Tongue
Series: (All)
We live in a world where diversity is a value that is highly sought after in schools, organizations, and society as a whole. We worship together as a congregation where diversity is a reality that we cherish and celebrate. We follow a God who the Bible says has a mission for every tribe, tongue, and nation. Racial and ethnic diversity are clearly important topics in our society and in our faith, but what role does diversity truly play in building us together as the body of Christ, and how can we more fully experience God's good news by grappling with the often difficult questions of race and ethnicity that confront us as God's people?
