In Matthew 28:18–20, Jesus gave us the specific command to "go and make disciples of all nations.” Today we need not go far to experience the nations. Consider the changing world in which we live. Our schools, parks, community centers, commercial markets, and governmental offices display increasing evidence of richness and diversity. Race, age, economic status, religious belief, personal style, educational experience, ethnic background, and cultural legacy all represent facets of our contemporary mission field. Diversity is all around us, both as a gift to be celebrated and an opportunity to be developed.
