    As did I. :) I don't think about race and stuff so I had to think it through. :) I actually had to think "Who is black or asian on our staff?" and forgot some of the staff was black! LOL

    While the church I attend has an all white staff, is predominantly white in it's projecting, we do have some of a variety of ethnic backgrounds. We are located in a community that is racially mixed, and have helped to work with a school where a lot of homeless children attend.
