Earlier this week, I gave some links to issues regarding black brothers and sisters leaving white evangelical spaces.
Now, the Southern Baptists are losing Beth Moore. (I am sure many them think this is a GLAD moment for them.)
Her departure is “tectonic in its reverberations,” said Jemar Tisby, the president of a Black Christian collective called the Witness. “Beth Moore has more influence and more cachet with Southern Baptists, especially white Southern Baptist women, than the vast majority of Southern Baptist pastors or other leaders. So her leaving is not just about one individual.”
The unfortunate thing is this is a reckoning in the white evangelical spaces… and we don’t recognize it.
