“Other kinds of others” by Jesse James DeConto in the Christian Century, (8/9/16).  “It was the congregation’s open and affirming stance that brought Robbyn Davis-Ellison to United Church of Chapel Hill, North Carolina, but it was the commitment to racial justice that kept her there.  Davis-Ellison, who is black and gay, grew up in a Pentecostal Holiness church in suburban Atlanta.”  A related biblical theme:  “There is no longer Jew or Greeks, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus” (Galatians 3:28).  Read this article online or print it out at:  http://bit.ly/2bFPlta.
