We know that God created us with unique gifts and abilities. (1 Corinthians 12:4-6). The Bible also tells us "all are one in Christ Jesus." (Galatians 3:28)

As we celebrate our diversity, United Methodists are called to embrace our unity as people of God, sharing our different likes, cultures, languages, ideas, and so much more, for God's Kingdom.
