who care for one another and bring God’s love into a broken world”
Koen Prinzen, February 2, 2020
Ever heard of the Dutch word “eenheidsworst”? Literally translated, this would be sausage-unity. It’s a type of unity where you have to lose your uniqueness in. This is not the type of unity the Bible calls us to. In 1 Corinthians 12, Paul compares the church to a body, where all the unique parts contribute in a uniquely valuable way to form a well-functioning unity. In this message, I want to talk about a tension we may experience sometimes in a church. It is a tension of uniqueness and unity. God has created all of us uniquely – with our own personality, strengths, weaknesses and some of us with a special manual. God has also created us to live intimately connected to others.
