The story of the gospel and it’s history around the world is about how it expands, includes, and elevates those formerly ignored and disregarded. We continue to talk about the diverse community in scripture with two key women in the gospels.
Diverse community doesn’t mean people who agree with me but look different. It means the inclusion of whoever our group is tempted to exclude because, as the gospels demonstrate, God will often choose to speak through whoever we are tempted to ignore or reject.
This is what we call a “conversermon” between Vine39 pastor Jim Zartman and pastoral team member Nancy O’Brian
