A Pneumatological Theology of Diversity

John Kenneth Gibson

DOWNLOAD COMPLETE ARTICLE PDF

After years of effort, racial and ethnic diversity remain a challenge for the church. Practical and constructive theologies of diversity generally depend upon the person and teaching of Christ and ignore the unifying work of the Holy Spirit. The eucharistic assembly, one of the most segregated of gatherings in the United States, must incarnate the diversity of the first Spirit-infused Pentecost to proclaim the kingdom of God. The church is not a static institution; rather, it is a living body, guided by the Spirit to its fulfillment in the other and in the eschatological assembly (Revelation 7:9).
