*This is a blog post I started on 2014 that never got published and decided to finish.
Over the past few weeks I have had a few different conversations about segregation.
In the Church.
What is the benefit of having people with differing views, lifestyles, cultures gathering in the same place?
One of the biggest lessons I am walking away from DC with is how much I love people who are different than me.
Has it always been easy to interact with different cultures? NO!
I did not come from a loud culture/family, but I have had experiences with a few different cultures where if you did not yell or were the loudest, you were not heard.
We all have a long way to go on racial reconciliation. Someone could misinterpret this blog post. Obviously conversations are better in person.
I am more willing to go to the uncomfortable places now than ever before.
