The most significant thing I learned during this internship is that God created us differently so we can get a better picture of who He is. Too often we elevate one way of “doing church” over another, or use our theology to tear others down rather than build one another up in the love of Christ. The truth is that in Christ and Christ alone, we are all redeemed and “enriched in Him, in all speech and all knowledge” (1 Cor. 1:5). I pray this for myself and for our church–that God will help us see His redeeming work in our brothers and sisters, rather than the small differences that we so easily divide over.
