    At our church on Sunday morning, an African-American family decided almost on a whim to come to our worship assembly. They stood out like a sore thumb.

    On the other hand, I worship with a church that's planting Spanish-speaking churches around the city. Admirable and needed efforts, yet I wonder why we don't share worship space more often.

    We're definitely in the "on the road but not there yet" phase.

    I share your dream. I'm not sure how to be a part of that fulfillment though. It was awesome seeing you host those kids from across the street this week. I sure hope they felt welcome.

    A few years ago I attended a free jazz night at the Dallas Museum of Art downtown. I was struck by the diversity of the people in the room. They ranged from affluent to homeless, young to mature, and I could see skin tones of every color. As I sat there I realized how beautiful it was to join together with people who didn't look just like me. I wonder what it would take for our worship to look like that: a rainbow of diversity, united in our love for Christ.
