Re: “'Church for Black Men' Coming Next Year

One of my favorite hymns growing up held the following verse:

Let us build a house where hands will reach
beyond the wood and stone
to heal and strengthen, serve and teach,
and live the Word theyve known.
Here the outcast and the stranger
bear the image of Gods face;
let us bring an end to fear and danger.
All are welcome, all are welcome,
all are welcome in this place.

I am not saying that there cannot be some good from reaching out to individuals within a faith community to connect with them on a specific level, in fact, most churches have ministries that seek to do just that. But to build an entire denomination devoted solely to a type of person based on their color or gender seems more divisive. It seems to me contradictory to the very heart and purpose of a faith community, to extend the arms of Jesus wide open proclaiming, "all are welcome".
