If your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off. - Mark 9:43 (NIV)
There are over 60 languages spoken in my neighborhood, making it one of the most diverse communities in the world. But the beauty of our
diversity is tainted by a
long history of discri-mination. Tensions are
particularly high between our mostly white police force and our African and African-American populations.
"Discovery Weekend changed me. I now have a better and stronger relationship with God because of it. Also, it has changed our church because people from all grades got closer together." (Discovery Weekend is an Upper Room spiritual formation experience for middle schoolers).
