Embracing the Discomfort of Diversity

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

At Pentecost, God laid a foundation of diversity for his church when he allowed the disciples to speak the languages of the nations. But today, we often use the cultural value of assimilation to achieve unity. We will explore how indigenous Christians are contextualizing worship for their cultures: using drums, chants, traditional dances, native languages, and even different perceptions of time. Learning unity is not found in sameness, but in celebrating our differences.
