Diversity – #WeAreAzureHills

Elder DP Harris

Scripture Meditation:

After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands.—Revelations 7:9

 

Prayer.

Dear Father,

Thank you for making each of us different.

Thank for giving each of us unique personalities, ideas, and talents.

I praise you that not one of us is a mistake.

Thank for bringing us into community with one another.

I pray that you open our eyes, so we can “see” the unique values in each other.

Build in us a dynamic growing community, so that we can love you and serve you better.

Thank you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

 

Reflection Questions.

  1. Who do you feel most comfortable around?
  2. Which types of people tend to be at your parties and weddings? Which types of people would you never invite?
  3. Which group of people do you just not understand? Which group of people are you pretty sure are WRONG?  Which group of people do you feel would be better off, if they just started seeing the world the way you see the world?
  4. Are you open to making connections across age, cultural, ideological barriers?

 

Action.

  • In the comment section, share two things revealing about yourself. (Not too personal, this is an open forum.)
  • Find someone this week or has a different opinion that you do. Engage in dialog solely for the purpose of listening.  Share your thoughts, ONLY if asked. 😊
  • Listen to a genre of music that you’ve never considered before. Listen to at least three songs in that genre.  Reflect on that experience.
  • Pray to God to show you which areas you need to expand your perspective. Praise him for putting people in your life who are different than you.
