How to get it
Huey Hudson, senior pastor of Restoration/Iglesia Restauración (Huntsville Foursquare Church) in Madison, Ala., is convinced that God intends people of every culture, nation and race to worship Him together with like-minded attitudes.
But, he notes, Sunday morning in the U.S. is typically the most segregated time in a country where racial integration has long been touted as a national ideal.
In this Quick Talk, recorded live at Foursquare Connection 2013 in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., Huey says that, in the U.S., most people would agree that diversity is healthy; but still we gather to worship the same God who created all of us in very divided venues simply because we are different.
“Diversity seldom happens without a strategy,” Huey says, and he describes what we must do to live and worship together. He shares the strategy his congregation uses and encourages leaders of other congregations to consider implementing a similar strategy.
Huey asserts that love opens the door for all people, and that love is fundamental to becoming the good neighbors Jesus taught about in the parable of the Good Samaritan.
“When we embrace and celebrate our differences, God is in our midst, doing the impossible, uniting hearts and changing attitudes,” he affirms.
