Honoring distinctiveness

From the June 27, 2011 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


Growing up in Sunday School, I often equated the early Christian church with the Pentecost story in the book of Acts, where all were in one accord (see Acts 1 and 2 ). Later in attending Bible talks and through my own further Bible study, I realized that the rest of Acts shows the early Christian church as often having to demonstrate being in one accord.
