Yes, It's true. This year's Emergent event in Nashville was even whiter than last year's. After the "Embracing Church" CCC, I was sitting with Glandion Carney, who got out the convention booklet. We leafed through it and found that he and I were the ONLY nonwhite leaders pictured. And we led a CCC which ended before the actual convention began. I know that Jen Lemen added non-white leadership to her CCC as well, but their leadership, too, ended.
In fact, the not-so-progressive National Pastors Convention showed greater diversity both in its leadership and overall participation.
This is the description. What does it mean? What, if anything, should be done about it?
