All of life is all for Jesus, so areas of cultural engagement, racial reconciliation, and diversity have to be informed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Tapestry Tables are a monthly place to consistently gather around a table to talk and grow alongside people from diverse backgrounds: Race, Gender, Age, and Finances. At Redemption Tucson we still have a lot to learn, a lot of work to do up ahead, but we take comfort in clinging to the gospel together.
Language matters and we intentionally use the language of TAPESTRY for this ministry of reconciliation & unity. From the promise in Genesis 12 to the worship service in Revelation 19, we see the plan of God to form a whole new people. A tapestry uses the uniquely different fabrics interacting, weaving, and overlapping with one another to form something altogether different. A tapestry maintains the integrity and beauty of different threads, but causes an interaction with these distinct threads in order to form something altogether new and beautiful. The final product is greater than, but still dependent upon, the individual parts in all their unique qualities. The language of tapestry helps us better understand what Jesus is doing in forming a people for Himself. Learn more about the vision of this language HERE.
