This tragic event has highlighted the division in America. Most of the news reports and commentaries concerning this event and the subsequent trial focus on the so called racial aspects rather than trying to find common ground. The media has been fueling the fires of prejudice in order to sell the news. The fundamental flaw in "racial" thinking is that there are separate races in the first place. According to the Genesis account, there is one race, the human race, descended from Adam and Eve. Unfortunately, there are some religious leaders who seem to encourage this ethnic and cultural divide.
I do not know how to even begin to bring the church in America together as a unified body that ignores cultural and ethnic lines, nor would I have the power or resources. God knows how, God has the power and resources, it may be that He is waiting on us to care. I have no ability to serve God outside that which He has enabled me, nor does anyone else, but I have the power to pray for reconciliation, to pray for unity in the Body of Christ, and to pray that men and women from all backgrounds and heritages can be united under the banner of Christ. I would like to invite you to pray along with me that God would heal the church of this terrible division and in so doing the country would heal as well.
