The Integrated Church

Monday, March 17, 2008

We've heard before that 11:00 A.M. on Sundays is the most segregated hour in America. But in actuality, Sunday mornings are no more segregated than any other day we choose to be around friends and loved ones. Of course, demographics plays a part, but is a truly integrated church possible?

I'm not the engineer my husband is, so I will not use statistics or data, just opinions...That could be dangerous, but it's my blog, and I mean no harm. This is just something I think about. (Let me reassure you, my sole reader, I definitely put my self closer to the creative side than the intellectual side of the spectrum, so this post will be a minority in styles of posts. But let me say this and I'll drop it... for now.) I believe the church benefits and grows when the church is integrated. The hard part is loving and befriending people who are not like us. This is inconvenient and requires investing in those around us we may not be initially drawn to. We just have to believe its worth it.
