He desired diversity when he asked people to fill the earth. He was not pleased with people grouping as one and building the tower of Babel and He gave them many tongues and scattered them. He will one day have representatives from each tribe, people, nation and tongue before His throne. It seems to me like culture might be important, stay tuned for the upcoming Cross-Cultural training.
What have you observed on your campus? How is the Latino and Hispanic population diverse there? How are Latinos/Latinas defining themselves there? How about the community in your city?
