FTL COHORT

"It may seem obvious, but stereotypes exist because people stereotype. It's easier to draw a caricature than to explore the complexities of someone who is different from us. By consequence, churches are largely segregated because people like hanging out with those who look, talk, and act like themselves. But is that what the church is meant to be? I don't believe so..."

- Ethan Seifried

DIVERSITY IN THE CHURCH: FACING OUR DEMONS

The face of America is changing, and South Florida is ahead of the curve. The Church in South Florida has the opportunity to set the pace for the American Church for generations to come. But are we up to the challenge? This month, we'll be discussing the following:

- Repenting of our cultural idolatry
- The fullness of Christ in the diversity of the Church
- Leading without patronizing or pandering
- Confronting, comforting, encouraging, or challenging with the Gospel
- The future of the Church
