What we are doing

I wrote a book about ten years ago called Living in Color: Embracing God’s Passion for Ethnic Diversity [link]. The purpose of the book is to help White pastors, and especially White Evangelicals, to begin to get a broader view of a theology of Diversity.

The book has been helpful and I have heard good things back from many pastors, etc., yet, it did not make a major splash, selling only about 12,000 copies thus far. In the meantime, entering the conversation in this form allowed me to make friends with a lot of  other ethnic minority folks who have similar concerns to my own. Although in the past decade there is some improvement among Evangelicals in entertaining thoughts concerning ethnic diversity–we still have a long way to go. In some ways we have even regressed. When all ethnic minorities have an equal seat at the new table–I may slow down, but until then–we need to add more ethnic space to our faith!

Hopefully, this site can become a regular stop for folks investigating ideas concerning ethnic diversity and faith. On this site you will receive perspectives from people representing many ethnic groups, including friends and advocates from among the White majority. We hope the caliber of writers on this site will always be remarkable, both in their understanding of diversity and in their faith journey stories.

The requirement for bloggers on this site is that they are active in promoting ethnic space in their faith–we have no color lines…
