The blending of Christianity with conquest dating back to the 1400's to the Doctrine of Discovery influencing the racist and sexist wording of the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution to boarding schools and internment camps justifying white supremacy what people of color and white people have experienced living in the United State is vastly different.

BOOK: Neighborliness

Without many in the white evangelical church even knowing it there are usually two baked in assumptions when we try to help our poor or oppressed neighbors.

Pastor David Docusen weaves personal stories of learning, embarrassment and hope with the evolution of his church, Center City Church (Orlando, FL), moving from an affluent part of the city to an impoverished part.
