I was saddened by the extreme racial divide in Detroit. South of 8 mile road is 85% African American. Some suburbs North of 8 mile road are 97% Anglo. In Dearborn, there are 300,000 Arab Americans.
Please pray for Steve Norman and his team as they seek to break through this division and reach people not being reached by the churches there. They have a gathering just north of 8 Mile Road (the line which seems to divide the city) and a new gathering downtown. I was so encouraged by all they are doing and who they are!
Creating a better future is tough work. As the church, we need to be leading the way in creating diverse communities!
