For two years, Stephanie Spellers conducted over two hundred interviews with people in urban, suburban, and rural congregations around the United States to find out how they dealt with welcoming those across lines of race and ethnicity. I was intrigued by Spellers' statement that sometimes those we need to welcome are already part of our congregations...that we have missed recognising and caring for people already in our midst. Great thinking and some cool challenges.
