We live in a diverse world filled with unprecedented opportunity. There is a call to move past the barriers that stand between us and those who may be different. Eric Michael Bryant has seen tolerance shown to those who
are different than us—racially, religiously, sexually, politically, economically—and believes there must be more. After all, Jesus didn’t just tolerate people; he embraced them all with love.
Deep down, we long to be a part of a loving and diverse community. We long to be part of a church known for caring for those the world has forgotten. We want to live our lives of faith in ways that would please God and intrigue those around us.
Wouldn’t it be amazing if people saw our lives and wanted what we have? Wouldn’t it be tremendous if people saw us living by faith, expressing love, and sharing hope?
