The Most Segregated Hour

One of our afternoon presenters today was Rev. Dr. Wilson Fallin, a pastor and history prof who wrote a book about the role of the African American Church in the Civil Rights movement (wouldn't it be great if I linked to it here? Wouldn't it be great if I had enough energy to after a 14 hour day and early departure for Selma and Tuskeegee tomorrow?).

I was able to ask him what he thought about our tendancy to self segregate ourselves in worship and his answer is worth quoting here.

"I don't trust the white Church. They aren't speaking out about
anything."

What's with all your posts having to do with religion? Religion is for the weak.

Thanks for the feedback! Perhaps someday I shall make a blog that is all request and then I would dance to your blogging whims and desires.

But you'd have to reveal yourself first.

And then there's the possibility that anonymous posting is for the weak, cowardly, and juvenile among us.
