Same Kind of Different as Me
A fellow Delta Dental board member and friend, Terri Miller, recommeded I read "Same Kind of Different as Me" by Ron Hall and Denver Moore. It is a quick read, describing the development of a friendship between a modern day slave and an international art dearler.
The emerging themes within their dialogue are great fodder for pause and reflection on a Christian response to screaming gaps in American social and economic justice. This is a must read for all Christians, let alone comfortable white Christians, who believe social and economic equality was achieved through the civil rights movement of the 60's and 70's. Hall and Moore make it abundantly clear that much work remains for the church and its people.
