When we think about diversity in the church, the body image is the one we most often point to. We ask, “Are you an ear or a toe?”
Today I was thinking about how bodies are even more complicated than toes and ears. Just look at an anatomy textbook if you want proof. I see a thousand more options for myself than just the ones on the surface. Am I a tendon or a lung or a white blood cell or a hair follicle or a tricuspid valve?
The church is made up of millions of absolutely unique individuals—people with talents, gifts, personalities, and experiences that make them the only them there is.
I love that.
