We’re divided—tribe, tongue, people, nation—and we have been from the beginning.

Since Eden, we’ve been divided by our differences, and our divisions have led to more divisions, and to contempt, and to hate.

But those divisions are actually lies. There is in fact one human race. As the Apostle Paul reminds the Ephesians:

"There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all.”

In Christ, God has broken down the walls between us and is remaking us into one people.

And we have work to do.
