95 Theses for Christian Racial & Ethnic Unity: #61

The tragedy of our public life in America is that we have tried to move beyond a history of racial injustice without accounting for how race made us who we are as a nation. . .Another way of saying this is that the language of multiculturalism makes it harder for the church to speak in tongues.  Caught up in the story of America, we forget that the Bible reverses the story of Babel not with a melting pot but with Pentecost.
