Update on Racism Remains

On Sunday, the church I mentioned in my last blog (First Baptist Church of Crystal Springs, Mississsippi) read an apology decided upon by the leaders of the church admitting that they shouldn’t have asked a black family to move their wedding.

While it was certainly a step in the right direction, it fell somewhat hort of a full statement of racial equality.  It was read to the congregation, but had not yet been delivered to the family involved, and it wasn’t completely clear that the church was changing its policy for the future.

Nevertheless, rather than nitpick the statement, I thank God that it was movement in the right direction, and I pray that the members of that congregation and others will set aside all racial prejudices and any policies that keep anyone of any race from full and complete participation in any congregation.
