Addressing Supremacy Through Unity And Diversity w/ Kyle Brooks and Bernard Emerson

By Praise Hands

“Our brotherhood trumps my blackness. Our brotherhood trumps his whiteness.” Bernard Emerson “There has got to be a sustained, communal response from the church that's more than a tweet or a Facebook post.” Kyle Brooks Amidst daily headlines of racism and polarization, Pastors Kyle Brooks and Bernard Emerson of Tapestry Church in Oakland, California are taking radical steps to reflect the kingdom of God in their city. During this episode, Kyle and Bernard share how their desire to reimagine church God’s way led to the merging of a Black church and a White church—fusing different traditions, age demographics, and worship styles—into one congregation now known as Tapestry Church. Hear Kyle and Bernard discuss the following: • Why their friendship trumps their ministry goals • The challenges and rewards of cultivating a multicultural congregation • Creative solutions for equipping the local church’s social impact Learn more about Tapestry Church at TapestryOakland.org or find them on Instagram @tapestryoakland ABOUT PRAISE HANDS PODCAST // Each week on the Praise Hands Podcast, join host Robby Valderrama and learn from creative, cross-cultural solutionists who are shaping the future of church, race, music, economics, and technology.
