Track or Treat?

If you look closely at history you will noticed that America was founded on a color-coded trick called race. That trick laid the track of dubious racial distinction and distracted us from the treat of compassionate color-caring and equality.

Perhaps we should learn from Halloween. It was originally started as an early celebration (the night before) for All Saints’ Day. Notice that it wasn’t celebrating “White Saints’ Day” or “Black Saints’ Day” or any other color of saints — but ALL Saints’ Day!

Let’s get off the race track. It’s time for ALL America’s Day! Need encouragement, support, and help getting off the race track? Then go to this link.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
