Thabiti Anyabwile, Louis Love, and Anthony Carter have launched a new site called, The Front Porch (clever). The site sets out to have those front porch conversations the African-American community are all too familiar with, reflecting on the black church. Looking forward to listening to these three brothers talk about biblical faithfulness in the African American community and beyond. We sure do need this! Here’s a clip of them talking about some of their goals:
From Thabiti’s blog:
What’s The Front Porch about?
We’re about “conversations about biblical faithfulness in African-American churches and beyond.”
We do a lot of laughing… a fair amount of celebrating… and some probing reflection. We do it all because we love that part of Christ’s Church called “the Black Church” and we want to see her thrive, building on the best of her history and reforming weak spots according to the word of God.
Perhaps you grew up in a house or a neighborhood where people gathered on the porch for the day’s events, a cool drink and a little encouragement. If so, you know what we’re after. If you’re looking for edifying conversation and a lot of laughs with the great and glorious family called “the Church,” then join us on The Front Porch!
Question: What kind of things do you think need to be discussed concerning the African-American church?
