Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. pointed out that Sunday morning at eleven o'clock is the most segregated hour in America.  Decades later, the church still remains one of America's most segregated institutions.  Although church-going Americans believe that all believers in Christ are part of an extended family, the concept is limited along racial lines.  Efforts for racial reconciliation within the church generally emphasize transformation of the heart, repentance and forgiveness.  Though these efforts are well intentioned, they often fall short of addressing the deep rooted issues of a segregated American church.
