Civil rights leaders of fifty years ago fought hard to overturn the “separate but equal” Jim Crow laws. America has come a long way since the ’60s. Our public facilities, parks, pools, and educational facilities — once segregated– are now filled with a variety of ethnic groups enjoying the benefits of togetherness. Yet our churches remain separate but equal. In a time of great progress, why does the church remain relatively unmoved?
United explores the importance of pursuing diversity in the church through the author’s unique experiences growing up in the South in a predominately white church. Throughout the book, she champions the theology of diversity through the Scriptures, providing compelling reasons to pursue diversity. Trillia also weaves in the heart-warming story of her friendship with two women of different ethnicities.
