Ethnic Diversity | Christian community | Melting Pot

“…you were called together as parts of one body” (Colossians 3:15).

For most of this century the term “melting pot” has been in use to refer to the assimilation of many cultures into American society.

Recently, someone offered a very different take on this idea. The speaker said she preferred the concept of a cultural “stew” to a cultural “soup.”

She said, “A soup is a homogeneous collection of ingredients blending into a consistent sameness. But a stew is a different story. It’s made up of individual ingredients that stand on their unique contribution to the pot – the meat and the potatoes and the vegetables each make their own statement – and together, they comprise a beautiful meal.
