Racial and Denominational Diversity – A Discussion

Posted on March 31, 2015 by PLT Staff

Recording of an open discussion between Don Coleman, Corey Widmer and Soong-Chun Rah of session VI and session VII of the Spring Institute for Lived Theology 2009 in Charlottesville, Virginia. Coleman, Widmer and Rah discuss various strategies to foster racial diversity in the church.

Excerpt: “One of the things that I see as a major stumbling block towards reconciliation is the love affair that the white evangelical church has with the Republican party. And it breaks my heart because politics has been so elevated to the place of being the watershed issue in so many church and the thing that ostracizes people of color. Churches that have a desire to be multi ethnic and the desire to diversity and reach the minority community, but when it comes to politics there’s just this shut down.”
