Only YOU are you

You are unique in all the world

in all of space

in all of time

While the Church is one in essence, it is diverse in gifts and function. Unity does not mean uniformity. Each member is unique before God, with gifts and roles granted by Him. Diversity in operation is (1) based on the ascent of the Son and the descent of the Spirit (2) guided by specially gifted people and (3) for the sake of the maturity and stability of the body.
