We live in a diverse society, where people belong to different religions and cultures, and have very different worldviews. Sociologists describe this as a differentiated world, and it comes with great struggles and opportunities. While we have more possibilities than ever to meet people different from ourselves and therefore expand our horizons, it can also be overwhelming and even make us feel like a stranger in our own land. The days are over where our countries were mostly populated by only one ethnicity or made up of people of mostly one faith or church tradition. How can we be ready to meet this diversity head on without fear of losing our roots?
