Race relations gets ‘Shrink the Divide’ insights

MOBILE, Ala. (BP) -- Messages emphasizing relationship and friendship as a way to combat racial strife were set forth to more than 1,600 ministers, church members, youth and senior citizens during a "Shrink the Divide" gathering in Mobile, Ala. As ushers in gray T-shirts with Shrink the Divide in white letters handed out programs and directed visitors to seats in the Mobile Civic Center Theater, the atmosphere took on the feel of a worship service. A praise band shared several songs including one with the words, "There is power in the name of Jesus to break every chain."
