Among all the things we’re called to care about as Christians, how crucial is racial reconciliation? In an interview with Student Soul, Paula Fuller, Director of Multiethnic Ministries, said:
“There is a long and painful history in our country of racism and injustice and part of our mandate as Christians is to serve as agents of reconciliation. True racial reconciliation is only possible through the work of Christ on the cross. The world celebrates diversity, but Jesus died for reconciliation.
We want to create an environment where anyone is welcome to attend, and we want to cultivate an appreciation for spending time in multiethnic gatherings. We hold before us the vision of Revelation 7:9, where there is “a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb.” We are excited that we will one day be a part of that multitude, but we don’t want to wait until heaven to get the fellowship started!”
