A message from Pastor Joel inviting you to corporate prayer this Wednesday night at 6:30pm in the sanctuary.
I believe that a multi-cultural church is a large part of the answer to the racial and ethnic divide in our city and country. While the issues are complex and no easy fix exists, the New Testament demonstrates that the church is to be a place where unity in the blood of Christ runs deeper and thicker than the bloodlines of race that so often divide. While the road toward racial reconciliation in our churches and cities will be long and hard, I am comforted by Ephesians 3:20-21, which reminds us that the work is ultimately the Lord’s to do in and through us: “Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”So come to the Grace Church sanctuary Wednesday, June 24, at 6:30pm for a time of corporate prayer, asking God to bring healing and God-glorifying diversity in our congregation and in other congregations in our city. To my white brothers and sisters in particular, I encourage you to reach out to Christian brothers and sisters of different races and ethnicities, inviting them to come and pray for these things as well.I look forward to seeing you and praying with you tomorrow evening at 6:30pm.
As you prepare to join us, listen again to Sunday’s sermon that concluded The Peacemaker series.
