Does Diversity Work in the Church?

Martin Luther King Jr. said that 11:00 on Sunday morning is "the most segregated hour in America." Not much has changed since King made that statement. But is this a bad thing?

An Army of Ones

As America has grown more diverse, and not just racially, the church has responded by creating congregations to appeal to specific subcultures. We see not only black congregations and white congregations, but also boomer and postmodern, contemporary and classical, liturgical and spontaneous.

Our church has a lady from India, several blacks, a Tiwaneese, and several hispanics. We run about 80 in worship on Sunday mornings.

I marched with DR.MLK in St. Augustine in 1968 (I think it was), but I don't think I'd totally agree with this statement today.
