A couple of years ago, I wrote a blog series entitled “Jungle Fever.” This series took a look at the racial differences between African-American and White churches. This series touched on how churches are still segregated and it appears this dynamic won’t change soon. Additionally, I shared the differences between black preachers and white preachers. Finally, I touched on how remarkably different blacks and whites dress when they attend worship. It was a great series that generated several comments. You can read more about it HERE.

Why do you think the Body of Christ remains segregated so many decades after the civil rights movement?

In short, they’ll passively sabotage any progress towards inclusion and multiculturalism.
Question: What do you believe are the fundamental reasons churches are segregated?
