I wholeheartedly endorse your movement, with one exception. The focus of the movement seems to center on white churches becoming more diverse. In my experience, it is the exact opposite. Being a very light-skinned black female, I am generally ignored, stared at, and ostracized at black churches. I would like to see this concept expanded to all churches — including black churches — so that we can all experience the diversity that represents Christ. I believe the reason why we were told not to make an image of Christ is because He knew our hearts, and knew we would immediately paint Him in our own image, whatever we looked like, and lead to the separation and segregation that we are experiencing today.

After all, churches are just a microcosm of society.

I agree with your diversity movement. I also think you might be missing the mark just a skinch. In order to have true diversity we have to first recognize that diversity is not only the about the amount of melanin in our skin, which is actually what makes our skin color different, But it is about a frame of mind. It’s about taking everything we have been taught about human existence in school and from our world view and, tossing it all out and start over with “Bible Glasses”(Ken Ham). We have to re-teach the world one church at a time that there is only one race (human) and that there are many cultures. P.S. I enjoyed your message Sunday.

I would like to address everyone entries and say the diversity movement is very well put, all churches should become connected in some way: black white,orange,and Hispanic. Trying to “re teach the bible” to my generation would be somewhat tricky because most of us aren’t interested in it, it is not appealing. In some cases we still read it to the core. What can be done it make it more retroactive. More fun to make it hands on, make it electronic and that will grasp our attention. Something has to attract our attention, be fun, educational and later bring in a little of the bible. For example Dante’s inferno on for the ps3

Hello,

I saw your link regarding being a guest blogger, and couldn’t help but click my way over.

And now, I have a question.

Could you please offer your audience further details regarding the type of content you are interested in? Do you want personal experiences regarding diversity in the church? Reports on what a particular institution is doing to improve?

I do not mean to be rude. However thus far, all I can tell is that you would like to read something original, unpublished, and brief.

Any further information that you could offer would be greatly appreciated.
