Dallas church bridges community division with huge aquarium
In a time when it seems like division is everywhere, one Dallas church is using nature to remind us that we’re more alike than different.
"We still have a responsibility for human kind," said Rickie Rush, the pastor at Inspiring Body of Christ Church (IBOC).
Before you can walk into the sanctuary at IBOC, you have to pass underneath an 80,000 gallon tank that represents much more than a nice view.
"The vision came from the scripture that talks about God making us 'fishers of men,"' Rush said. "Which indicates that we have a responsibility of reaching everyone that kind of gets caught in our net. If these fish can come together from all kinds of different environments, but survive in the same tank, we can do that same thing with people."
