Unity in Diversity
FOREST HILL, TEX. – The Forest Hill Seventh-day Adventist Church is located just south of Interstate 20 in a small suburb southwest of Fort Worth. In the fall of 2018, our church proudly hosted International Day with the theme “Diversity In Unity.” Churches from across North Texas joined us in a show of togetherness and diversity.
Members and guests attended the event dressed up in the colorful traditional garb of their native countries of origin. The keynote speaker for the day was Carl Ming, pastor of the Ephesus Seventh-day Adventist Church in San Antonio. After the message, different praise teams from across the Dallas and Fort Worth areas praised God through the gift of song.
Creative members had taken the time to decorate the fellowship hall, which was peppered with flags representing the world over. We broke bread together and shared in our cultural heritage together.
Members and guests enjoyed delicious and unique dishes that had been lovingly prepared by individuals from a variety of different regions including Panama, Belize, Jamaica, Trinidad, Nigeria, Ghana and France, among others. What a high day in the Lord it was!
