In this course, Pastor David Swanson contends that before white churches can pursue diversity, we must first take steps to address the faulty discipleship that has led to our segregation in the first place. This course will help you to rethink your churches' habits, or liturgies, and imagine together holistic, communal discipleship practices that can reform us as members of Christ's diverse body.
