Chances are if all your friends dress like you, look like you and talk like you then they will also think like you. All of us need people in our lives who are not like us.

When we open ourselves up to include people who are different in our friendships our, world becomes richer and more beautiful.

When we read Scripture with those who are not like us socially, racially and economically we open ourselves to knowing God better.

Together we enrich and challenge one another in ways that are not possible when we only learn and live only with those who are like us. What voices are missing in your life?
