The church will always face diversity. God's people differ in culture, language, economic situations, needs, desires, and even styles of worship. This theme shows how to blend all these differences into one joyful family of God. In his interview, '"Building a Church of Diversity,” Charles Lyons tells how his church grew from a handful of Appalachian whites to a cosmopolitan congregation of 40-plus nationalities. Other articles in this theme welcome people of different family structures, economic conditions, ages, races, educations, and religious backgrounds.
