United

Captured by God’s Vision for Diversity

On the Last Day every tongue and tribe will be represented in the glorious chorus praising God with one voice. Yet today our churches remain segregated. Can we reflect the beauty of the last day this day? United will inspire, challenge and encourage readers to pursue the joys of of diversity through stories of the author’s own journey and a theology of diversity lived out.

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 60’s. 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 will explore the importance of pursuing diversity in the church by sharing the author’s unique experiences growing up in the south and attending a predominately white church. She champions the theology of diversity throughout the book through the Scriptures providing compelling reasons to pursue diversity. Trillia will also weave in story describing her friendship with two women of different ethnicities.
