Everything goes slower in a diverse church: it takes longer to cast vision in a way that overcomes cultural barriers, and good communication requieres several attempts before it is reached. There are many ways to overcome the cultural inertia that exist in this kind of settings, but the most effective one is the intervention of the Holy Spirit. When he allows each individual to see that, regardless of cultural background, we all are sinners without hope except for the work and person of Jesus Christ, then unity starts to emerge. It does not matter the color of your skin, the language you speak, your immigration status, or your socio-economics… we all need God’s restoration.
Unity in our sin.
