Back on July 30, I posted about a church in Mississippi that barred an African American couple from having their wedding ceremony in their sanctuary. After national reaction, the church has issued an apology that can be found by CLICKING HERE.
While the apology may not undue the initial injustice suffered by the petitioning couple, at least the public apology is a step in the right direction, and hopefully will begin the long process of healing in that community. My prayer is that this event will create an ongoing positive dialogue in the church, the community, and in other parts of our nation where racism is still alive and well. May each of our churches strive to be known for what they favor rather than for what they oppose.
