I’d like to pose a question to everyone and hope you can provide an honest and respectable response to this question. I ask it to survey the thoughts, ideas and suggestions on what I believe is one of the contributing elements in what is ruining the world. I don’t want to be misunderstood, because I know it isn’t the only factor, but it has absolutely contributed to the various declines in human decency and moral sensibilities in history until today.
Personally I know that there are various types of diversity in worship, so I’m not referring to all churches, synagogues, mosques or temples. But the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. remain true when he said that “11 o’clock on Sunday morning is the most segregated hour in America”. When you consider how we worship today, regardless of the day, time, place or method of worship it’s often segregated or sparsely integrated. This is not exclusively to any one race, religious belief or denomination.
So I say all of this to ask three questions that I hope doesn’t get me stoned or vanished to a virtual Isle of Patmos. Perhaps I need to just look towards the ground and write these questions in the dirt. 😀The Questions 1) Why isn’t there more diversity in our churches, synagogues, mosques or temples?
2) Should churches, synagogues, mosques and temples begin instituting cultural diversity ministries and sensitivities training?
3) What will you do to answer these question?
