I listened last night to a short NPR piece (A Racial Convergence, via Religion) about a couple of Lutheran churches in Indiana. One church is predominately white, the other predominately black, and both have been in decline. With only three miles between the churches they now have plans to merge. The story left me thinking about how unlikely it is that I’ll ever hear a story about two successful, growing churches—one black and one white—merging because of their commitment to racial reconciliation.
