What’s your one thing?

A book I am reading was talking about the trap of being well-rounded. The author asserts that well rounded people do not get noticed because they never go deep. She suggests honing in on what you are passionate about and focusing on that instead of diversifying.

I sometimes feel like local churches suffer from trying to be well rounded. We have taken the golden rule to mean that unapologetically claiming an identity that is not everything to everyone is wrong. But I wonder, if we were forced to pick one thing to focus on, one thing for our communities to deepen what would it be?
