I relocated to Memphis from growing up and living in various cities out west. I quickly learned how backwards Memphis is in terms of race relations. There are many efforts to resove the issues and I won't use this forum as my way of addressing the issue. However, it is my feeling that a church as large as this (HUGE!) should be doing more to try to diversify itself. I attended a holiday show and a service there and was shocked at how "white-washed" it was. I now attend another very large church in the city that is taking many efforts to not only diversify, but to minister and address the negative cultural issues this city has. Bellevue, in my opinion, celebrates it's non-diverse congregation and seems to want to keep it that way.
