Too often, our churches are one color, one political party, one position on complex social issues. Intentionally or accidentally, we create congregations where diversity is unwelcome. But diversity was God’s idea, and every church is stronger the more diverse it is. How can pastors and church leaders teach empathy as a spiritual practice that nurtures and encourages strong, diverse relationships?
