The Foundations for Who We Are

June 4, 2011

Our meditation reminds me that one of the great things about a multi-cultural family is that, regardless of our language barrier, our actions speak louder than words. We have a church family where there are African-Americans, Caucasians, Tongans, and Asians. We are a very diverse Church but at the same time the spirit of our faith, love, and respect to each others’ cultures binds us together as one family. Put us together in a worship service, choir, potluck, dancing, and fellowship – and what a powerful and mighty force of love in action, in mission, and in outreach that is.  

A Tongan former NFL player said, “We Tongans benefit from Dr. Martin Luther King’s dream and the African-Americans’ struggles through slavery and racism.” I am very thankful for those who came before us and prepared a place, The United Methodist Church, where we call home. Thanks to them for their stewardship of their lives to lay the foundation where we, the latecomers, benefit.
