"Over and over again, Jesus showed us how he allowed seemingly opposite truths to pull his heart wider open in the midst of great suffering. Paul saw what most of us miss: that in Jesus 'all things hold together,'" Sara Wenger Shenk says in her latest post in Practicing Reconciliation, What does faithfulness look like?

"... I long for us as a people, to be distinctive in immediately recognizable ways. ... How can we be a church where all are genuinely welcomed (with our differences) into Jesus’ family and be a church that honors God with our ethnicity, our sexuality, our education?"
