Watch the video first:

Obviously, the video is about adoption, but I want to suggest this is a picture of the church as well. The metaphor for the church being a family and us joined together in a diversity of cultures, backgrounds, gifts and handicaps. After all, we are all adopted into the family of God. The challenge then, and this isn’t so easily depicted in a promotional video about adoption, is how to become that family. How do we relate to each other as siblings in this new family? How do we forgive and love one another, we who are so different and unlike one another? It’s no easy task, but at least we have a picture now.
