Here's a first-hand account of how a white church and a black church in the same town attempted to draw into closer fellowship. Rev. Leininger shares frankly about the mistakes he made and the lessons he learned.
Conflict is often painful -- but it can also stimulate growth in ways that might never have occurred without it. A Color-Blind Church tells the gripping story of two churches in the little village of Liberty Hill, South Carolina -- one black, one white, both Presbyterian -- and the struggle generated by an attempt to bring them into closer fellowship. From his firsthand perspective, Leininger examines numerous contentious issues this unique opportunity raised, reflects on what he might have done differently and the lessons he learned, and offers specific advice on how to successfully build bridges when bringing together disparate faith communities. "In this refreshingly honest and authentic analysis, David Leininger offers his take on why 11: 00 on Sunday morning is still the most segregated hour in America. Although attitudes have changed in recent decades, Leininger shows us how much they have stayed the same with a startlingly contemporary story." -- William J. Carl III
