The Gospel Coalition hosted a workshop titled “Embracing the Beauty of Diversity” with Jackie Hill Perry, Jamie Ivey, and Itohan Omolere at the 2018 Women’s Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana. The panel addressed the importance of diversity for Christians, beginning with God as the author of diversity and leading into how that point should affect the lives of believers. They discussed what it means to celebrate diversity on an individual level, within families and friendships, and within the church.
