You say "multi-cultural ministry slows down ministry". Is this true? How do you define ministry?

Ed, Excellent article, wish I could have gone to the conference and heard the lecture. In the article you talked to being multi-cultural being more than multi-racial yet didn't speak much to the socio-economic aspects that make up culture. Even if I intentionally engage other races who are of the same socio-economic make up, can I really claim to be multi-cultural (unless they are maybe 1st or 2nd gen immigrants)? Is the socio-economic aspect as much a factor if not larger than race in much of America? Was your session at the conference recorded, and if so how would I get a copy? Burt

In Colossians 3:9-11 Paul writes "...Since you have put off the old man with his practices and have put on the new man, which is being renewed unto full knowledge according to the image of Him who created him, where there cannot be Greek and Jew, circumcision and uncircumcision, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free man, but Christ is all and in all" In the church, the new man, there is no room for any culture. There is room only for Christ. The Bible does not teach multi-culturalism. It teaches Christ as all and in all. Paul was delivered from his Jewish religion and culture to live Christ. All believers are called to do the same. Only this can produce the oneness the Lord prayed for in John 17.

Greetings Ed! Greetings from So Cal! Enjoyed your presentation at Mosaix '13. Hoping that churches become multi and multi-racial at the same time so that God himself will continue to unfold in our presence at a quicker pace.
