Erwin McManus, pastor of Mosaic LA, a multi-ethnic community of faith, recalled an instance in which a church consulted him for advice. This church consisted of white Christians who wanted to know: “How can we make our church more diverse?”
I love Erwin’s response:
“How many friends do you have that are people of color? Would you let your daughter marry someone of a different race? No? Well, look. At Mosaic, being diverse is not a strategy. It is our heart.“
Reminds me of how real change occurs in the context of relationship, not because we simply opt in for political correctness.
