  1. Elizabeth ~ thank you for sharing your thoughts as a Pastor and a Christian who values diversity in all areas of life.

    I am tempted to copy/paste several chunks of your above writing into my comment box with the appropriate ‘thumbs up’ emoji attached. Thanks for allowing me to highlight a couple. “The question surprised me because if there is any group that should be equipped to deal with diversity in culture, social issues, politics and theology, it should be the church.” Yes! Our God is so incredibly bigger than our fear of “condoning” something we may take difference to. “Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.” Romans 15:7
    “Our main identity isn’t in the labels of Republican, marriage equality supporter, creationist, pacifist or others. Our main identity is found in Jesus Christ.” Amen!
    “Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.” John 1:12
