A Caucasian couple was looking for a place to sit during breakfast.
Where my family and I were sitting had a few open chairs. We invited the couple to sit. The husband and wife gladly did.
Albeit this was at a hotel, not at my house, but two different races sharing a meal together, in this racially-tension-charged culture, was symbolically special, in my humble opinion.
Over breakfast, we spend the time getting to know one another.
Then a few weeks later, I ran into the following:
While it’s not the solution, it is indeed a solution.
Contribute to the needs of God’s people, and welcome strangers into your home. –Romans 12:13 CEB
So why don’t we all step out of our comfort zones and invite someone of a different race to share a meal together?
Let’s get to know one another over a simple meal, beginning at the grassroots level of our homes, in our communities, and watch God transform our culture for his glory and our good.
