The Christian Chronicle series on race and Churches of Christ

The Chronicle has a good series on race and the church this issue, so I’ve provided a set of links to the three stories:

  • Race and the Church: Getting Beyond the Handshake
    “In a city split by racial wounds, Detroit area church leaders endeavor to promote reconciliation, cooperation through regular fellowship, joint ministry.”
  • Sundays not Segregated at Florissant
    “My information is that Florissant has always been a racially diverse congregation,” said Mike Root, the minister for four years.  “It has been intentional, but it is also the result of the demographic of our community,” said Root, who is white. “I have never been with a church that so closely matches the true makeup of its community as Florissant does.”
  • Leaders Tackle Questions on Race and the Church
    Four church leaders who serve racially diverse congregations responded to a series of questions from The Christian Chronicle.
