More than a Day Off (Repost)

We must be the dream. Everyday.

“We must face the sad fact that at the eleven o’clock hour on Sunday when we stand to sing, we stand in the most segregated hour in America…and the most segregated school is Sunday school.” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

“Ministry leaders are claiming they want to share the gospel with ‘all people’, but their sanctuaries and their hearts are communicating that they want to share the gospel with those that look like them.” –   Scott Williams

“I believe that the gospel—the good news of Christ crucified in our place to remove the wrath of God and provide forgiveness of sins and power for sanctification—is our only hope for the kind of racial diversity and harmony that ultimately matters. If we abandon the fullness of the gospel to make racial and ethnic diversity quicker or easier, we create a mere shadow of the kingdom, an imitation. And we lose the one thing that can bring about Christ-exalting diversity and harmony. Any other kind is an alluring snare. For what does it profit a man if he gains complete diversity and loses his own soul?” – John Piper
