There’s a lot of talk amongst evangelicals about diversity and why Dr. King’s statement of Sunday being the most segregated day of the week still exists.
There are a ton of blogs and sermons on the subject and with the landscape of America changing—if we’re honest—the Church is late on this issue. But, as in all things, there’s grace for us leaders trying to change our homogenous expressions to reflect a more diverse display which accurately reflects the city in which we exist.
I recently had a convo with another African-American pastor who doesn’t think diversity is something we should pursue and his reason was “white ...

It is with deep sorrow that the Acts 29 Network announces its decision to remove Mark Driscoll and Mars Hill Church from membership in the network. Mark and the Elders of Mars Hill have been informed of the decision, along with the reasons for removal. It is our conviction that the nature of the accusations against Mark, most of which have been confirmed by him, make it untenable and unhelpful to keep Mark and Mars Hill in our network. In taking this action, our prayer is that it will encourage the leadership of Mars Hill to respond in a distinctive and godly manner so that the name of Christ will not continue to be dishonored.
