I have learned a lot about a lot from my dear friend Thabiti Anyabwile. One of the things I continue to learn from him is how to think wisely, courageously, and biblically about issues of race and ethnicity.

We are witnessing a remarkable advance of gospel-centeredness and reformed theology in the African American church today. I am only a novice when it comes to issues of racial reconciliation, but I know that I want to do whatever I can to celebrate, support, and learn from this surprising work of God.

Be sure to check out the Reformed African American Network. Stop by The Front Porch too. And for a powerful message on the gospel and multi-ethnic ministry you won’t find many better than the sermon Mike Campbell (Redeemer Presbyterian Church, Jackson, MS) gave at the 2006 Bethlehem Conference for Pastors.
