Settling for Reality

"We must reconcile ourselves across racial and cultural barriers. I hear people talking about the black church and the white church. I do it too---it's reality. But it's not in Scripture. We should not settle for the reality our culture presents us with. You see, the whole idea of the love of God was to draw people together in one body---reconciled to God. That's supposed to be the glory of the church!

When reconciliation is taking place across cultural lines---between blacks and whites, between rich and poor, between indigenous and those who are new in the community---the quiet revolution is ready to spread."

-John Perkins, from A Quiet Revolution

What realities are you faced with? How are you dealing with reality? Where are your searching for possibilities when you are up against situations that seem to present the impossible?
