On this live episode of Pass the Mic, Jemar and Tyler discuss the New York Times article "A Quiet Exodus: Why Black Worshipers Are Leaving White Evangelical Churches" by Campbell Robertson (https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/09/us...). -What is the extent of this exodus? -How does the American church need to change? -What's next for Black Christians? -What are we missing in this conversation? We also announce the details for our next PTM Tour stop in Dallas, Texas! The Witness is a black Christian collective that engages issues of religion, race, justice, and culture from a biblical perspective. We aim to change the way Christians engage the church and the world by challenging them to think and act according to the holistic message of Christ. We consciously draw on the expansive black church tradition to address matters of personal faith while also speaking to issues of public righteousness.
