One of the beautiful byproducts of the gospel is that it gathers believers from many backgrounds into one body. Still, we don’t share all the same experiences. Those in the American cultural majority simply don’t face everything minority brothers and sisters do, and vice versa.
What are some of these experiences? What burdens do cultural minorities bear that many of us in the majority are prone to overlook and not handle with care? Is there any benefit to gathering in an ethic-centered context?
In a new roundtable video, Trip Lee (hip-hop artist and pastor of Cornerstone Church in Atlanta), Alex Medina (creative director at Reach Records), and Jemar Tisby (co-founder of Reformed African American Network) help us to grasp some issues minorities in our churches face and to consider ways “cultural-majority believers” can be more considerate of the minority experience.
