God, in his birthing of the church at this first Pentecost event, did not erase our differences. What I believe in my entire being, is that god invites us to celebrate what makes us so unique and amazingly different.
Being different is something that we do not need to ever fix. God joins us in the midst of our human messiness and continues to light a path for the prophets to lead the church. Today, that is you and that is me.
