More Thoughts on Multicultural Church: 3 Things to Consider About Multiculturalism

A Christian view of multiculturalism:

For example, a church in Brooklyn may be made up of 100 white-skinned people. On the surface, such a church looks rather homogenous. It is not until you learn that those 100 people are made up of people from the United States, South Africa, Germany, Spain, and a number of other countries that you realize diversity exists despite similar skin tones. The same example works with lots of different ethnicities and cultures.

A multicultural church is not simply about skin tone, but about the intentional, effective engagement of cultures. Racially diverse churches may be as culturally homogeneous as churches that lack racial diversity.
