This is Quite Interesting

Two churches, one white and one black, but both part, it seems, of the United Methodist Church, existing pretty much side-by-side for decades. I realize whoever's reading this may well have known about it already, but I definitely didn't. Definitely read the article even if you know the basic story already, though. It's...very interesting.

New York Times story
here. My heart goes out to the people in these congregations and their struggle for reconciliation. I'm not quite sure what the proper prayer is here; maybe all I can really pray for is Christian unity in this case.

Edit: Hat tip to GetReligion.

The way this is going, I'm going to have to just start making posts full of theological interesting things, becuase so many of them keep happening.
