A Prom Divided--a Story From Sunday's Sermon
In my sermon last Sunday, I mentioned the story from the New York Times Magazinethis past week regarding the separate proms in Montgomery County, Georgia for white students and black students. I brought it up on Ascension Sunday as an example of the kind of lines God would have us erase and when we have an ascendant view we can share God's goal. I recommend also checking out the audio slide show (located on the left hand side of the page under one of the pics) where you hear the reporters covering the story and the voices of parents and students. The words from the black students and some of the white students are heartbreaking. The words of the white parents and many of the white students are infuriating.
