Last night Juli and I were at a dinner that celebrated ethinc diversity. It was wonderful to see African Americans, Hispanics, Asians, Native Americans, and so many other cultures sitting around tables eating and talking about how we might make the world a better place to live. A world where Dr. King’s dream would be reality. And as much as I enjoyed it I couldn’t help but thinking, why aren’t our churches like this?

This passage tells us that it can be this way. The Spirit is present in the church and if we allow Him to, He desires to bring all different types of people together and make them one. Not the same, but one. Sometimes I think we forget what happened on the day of Pentecost. God poured out the Spirit on all people.

Holy Spirit come and let Your dream be fulfilled inthe Church!

1 Corinthians 12:1-12
