    I plan to preach from the Bible each Sunday (in other words, nothing different).

    Amen :thumbs:

    While it's important to know your heritage, I believe black history month drives the wedge further between racial equality than it does promote it. It's almost a slap in the face, IMO. I can't tell you how many years in a row I hear who invented the fist traffic light, invented peanut butter, etc. It's almost like "wow, look, we can do important things too".

    Also, with political correctness rampant, why isn't african-american history month insisted upon?

    Absoluetly not. Why on earth should we set aside church time to recognize someone's skin color? :saint:

    I thought 'black' WAS history, with the election of our first 'Black' president.

    I am going to protest all the American holidays shown on our Canadian calendars. We might get confused and take more days off than we should..:laugh:

    Black February is an historical thing and was around even before the battles for equal rights. Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday was in January.19th I think

    Cheers,

    Jim

    Our church does not take its cue from the world; we preach the word, which includes that all people are made in the image of God. This lesson was taught recently in our "foundational doctrines" series.
