“Neither Jew nor Greek”: A call to unity and solidarity (Fall/Winter 2020)

In August 2015, God called our family to serve at Redeemer Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I remember a close friend’s comment around the time of our move: “Adam, I believe God is sending your family to serve in a deeply segregated city for a purpose.” A deeply segregated city?
