Much has happened in recent years with globalization and urbanization where people from all nations are living as our neighbors. These immigrant communities have started vibrant churches with unique worship expressions. Churches in North America have the opportunity to celebrate the diversity of global cultures and experience the fullness of Christ through ‘glocal’ worship. Missions historian Andrew Walls puts it this way: “the understanding of Christ—knowing the ‘full stature’— arises from the coming together of the fragmented understandings that occur within the diverse culture.” In other words, we only fully understand the fullness of Christ by interacting with Christians of other cultures.
