Sundays not Segregated at Florissant

“My information is that Florissant has always been a racially diverse congregation,

Sounds like progress.    ::nodding::

But after reading all of the articles, I'm still not terribly impressed.  I's not so hard to mix with the other church for an hour or two on Sunday morning, once in a while.  But to work toward a multiracial church in one place -- where everyone mingles every week -- that would be even better, and a real test of everyone's openness.

This was a very good article and I was was very pleased to see discussion on a topic that I am just puzzled by. Frankly, I am always astounded at how we as a community of faith do come together with congregations more often, race or not. I am glad this is put out on the front page.
