  • I am a former baptist. I am out of Church now and am considering joining an A.M.E.Z. Church but I like the direction of Presbyterian. However in Sacramento, CA. where the Churches are either 99% white or Asian. I am a black man and would like to be in a diverse Church. The international attention is also important in Christianity like the plight of the Palestinians. I am looking forward to a couple of trips to Pittsburgh,PA. Tell me what you think please. Thank you.. by clifford a. washington on 06/18/2014 at 10:46 a.m.
