Maybe we wouldn't admit this out loud, but without saying it, have you ever wished that people would just agree with you? Think the way you do? Agree with your views, your opinions, your norms of dress and respect?
This kind of thinking can lead to an attitude of uniformity--a demand or expectation that we look and act the same. If someone doesn't align with that uniformity, they're not welcome. Uniformity is an easy entry point for us to become accidental Pharisee.
In this message, Pastor Brian unpacks the difference between unity and uniformity by looking at Luke 7:36-50. We are reminded that Christ died to save us in our differences not from our differences.
