Unity in diversity

The film, “Change Your Name Ousama” challenges the viewer, and Canadians in particular, to question their perception of Muslims in Canada.

Is there a new ethos in this country?

Is it true that 20 years ago we would have said, “THEY are different from us.”?

Is it true that now we say, “WE are different from each other.”?

Is Canada undergoing an experiment in the integration, NOT assimilation, of immigrants from around God’s world?

The words that Paul wrote to the church at Corinth are applicable to our society as a whole:

The way God designed our bodies is a model for understanding our lives together as a church:

every part dependent on every other part, the parts we mention and the parts we don’t,

the parts we see and the parts we don’t.

If one part hurts, every other part is involved in the hurt, and in the healing.

If one part flourishes, every other part enters into the exuberance.

(1 Corinthians 12 – The Message)
