Believing and Belonging in Luke and Acts, A Look at Ethnic Diversity

Presented by Eric D. Barreto

March 20, 7:00 pm in the Celtic Cross Room

Survey after survey demonstrates that ethnic diversity is increasing; however, many of our churches remain culturally homogeneous. What might a church that invites diversity look like? We will turn to the Gospel of Luke and the Acts of the Apostles to wonder together how God’s gift of diversity might take root in our lives together.Too often, our tendency has been to imagine that our faith “solves” the “problems” of diversity by making us all one, the same. In contrast, the author of Luke-Acts views our differences as a gift to be treasured, not a difficulty to be overcome.

Eric D. Barreto is Weyerhaeuser Associate Professor of New Testament at Princeton Theological Seminary and an ordained Baptist minister. He holds a BA in religion from Oklahoma Baptist University, an MDiv from Princeton Seminary, and a PhD in New Testament from Emory University. He is the author of Ethnic Negotiations: The Function of Race and Ethnicity in Acts 16, the co-author of Exploring the Bible, and editor of Reading Theologically. Dr. Barreto is also a regular contributor to ONScripture.org, the Huffington Post, WorkingPreacher.org, and EntertheBible.org.
