Diversity and Unity in the Body

From ByFaith Magazine here:

"Jesus knew that populating a team with differing opinions and experiences is the best way to take advantage of the power of God’s creative genius. We aren’t all created different because God became bored with one model and decided to try something else. We are diverse because God, in His infinite wisdom, knows that our differences will add to the mosaic in tangible ways that no other combination of personalities can."

and

"If your team sings 'Kumbaya' at every meeting, you have a problem. If two or more people always agree on everything, at least one of them is redundant."
