Crossing the Ethnic Divide

This chapter shifts the focus from Evergreen as an institution to Evergreen as a community of individuals. All churches have areas of tension, but multiethnic churches must also contend with conflicts that arise from ethnic differences. The fault lines along which tensions arise most frequently at Evergreen are examined: communication, food, and family. Underlying these tensions are conflicting views on the role ethnic diversity ought to play in this church and whether it is even possible to be ethnic in a multiethnic context.

Keywords:   Evergreen Baptist Church, multiethnic churches, ethnic tension, communication, food, family
