WWJD: Christians fail at being inclusive

As the US becomes more racially diverse, few minorities are drawn to the Christian faith, a groundbreaking census of American Religion has found. The Public Religion Research Institute said 70 percent of Americans identify as Christian but only 26 percent consider themselves Christians of color. However, 44 percent identify as white Christians. The percentage of minority Christians has changed little in 15 years, although the Census Bureau said each minority group in the US has grown by double-digits since 2010. Five percent of Americans identity with non-Christian religions, such as Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, or some other religion, pollsters said. The study, based on telephone interviews last year, also found nearly one-quarter of Americans don’t affiliate with any religion. The study, released on July 8, 2021, was based on interviews with more than 500,000 Americans between 2013 and 2020. The U.S. Census Bureau last collected religious data in 1957. The research institute, PRRI, is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to conducting independent research at the intersection of religion, culture, and politics.   Written by TMCH

WHITE TOO LONG: The Legacy of White Supremacy in American Christianity

By Robert P. Jones

Synopsis: As the nation grapples with demographic changes and the legacy of racism in America, Christianity’s role as a cornerstone of white supremacy has been largely overlooked. But white Christians—from evangelicals in the South to mainline Protestants in the Midwest and Catholics in the Northeast—have not just been complacent or complicit; rather, as the dominant cultural power, they have constructed and sustained a project of protecting white supremacy and opposing black equality that has framed the entire American story.  [READ MORE]

We’re entering the season of giving. Thanksgiving and Christmas traditionally are fun holidays where we enjoy family and friends, throw parties, attend celebrations, share food, and exchange gifts.

This year – 2021 – we are slowly returning to the good ole days after suffering a couple of years from the COVID-19 pandemic, which closed businesses, eliminated jobs, isolated families, and left some of us struggling daily to survive. While we still are not “back to normal,” we must remember the importance of giving and sharing, especially during this time. [READ MORE]

Encouraging Your Own Self:

A sick woman talks herself into finding Jesus Mark 5:25-29 

When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd, and touched his cloak, because she thought [or said to herself], ‘If I just touch his clothes. I will be healed.’  Mark 5:27& 28 NIV Mark presents the story of a woman with a female medical issue. The story is told as an aside to a more important tale about a big-time synagogue ruler with a sick daughter. Mark describes the woman in three brief verses: 1) she had been sick for 12 years; 2) sought medical help from a variety of doctors, some of whom were quite pricey; and 3) her condition was worsening. [READ MORE]

Colossians 3:17 says “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” Women of the Word takes that command seriously. Last year, we started providing desserts to the homeless men who visit Our Daily Bread in Baltimore. Recently, we joined Samaritan’s Purse in collecting gently used toys, shoes and clothing for shipment to various sites in Africa. And, frequently we visit hospitals and nursing centers to brighten residents’ days. Our efforts to conduct Bible Study in local correctional institutions have been suspended since the outbreak of COVID-19 and all its variants.

What we believe:
We all can be assured of a fulfilling life packed with all the resources we need by admitting our sin to the one sovereign God, believing that God’s son, Jesus, died on the cross for our sins and rose again, and confessing Him as the only one who can forgive our sins. The Bible says that we are saved by grace through faith and that this saving faith produces a changed life on Earth and guarantees eternal life in Heaven.
