Since being elected four years ago, he has now tried to bri ng the two denominations together. While they are not yet trying to merge, they still intend to try to bring the two denominations closer. While I am not Pentecostal, I can still relate to the racial differences in churches.

However, being in South Georgia I had many friend who attended predominately African-American churches, and I visited with them on many occasions. The style and feeling is so different between the two, that I was uncomfortable at their church and they were uncomfortable at mine.

While most people do prefer to be around people like them, I would like to believe that many other people are more comfortable with anyone that worships the same God being in the pew beside them.

However, this time period in American history also divided lots of religions and denominations in America, because of the issue of slavery. Segregation is the time period where, like the rest of America, the church you attended was decided by color.
