This is a creative writing that was originally written in 2009. At the time I was struggling with how the mainstream evangelical church treats those who are not apart of the dominant culture. To be honest, I was weary of being taught that we must live for others, and yet also hearing that we must cater to the majority. My family and I have attended a large predominantly white church for over 16 years, and we missed the soul-stirring worship of a black church. More than that, we were weary of always having to be the one to sacrifice in order to make others more comfortable. Of course, we could always go back to a black church, but that would simply perpetuate the problem. Churches are still very segregated. I believe God has much more for us than segregated churches.
My hope in republishing this writing is to give you a small window into our world.
