Tears in my eyes.  Makes me wanna move to urban St Louis and be part of Mike Higgins’ church.  I would love for Mike to be my pastor.  I would love to be a part of what Jesus is doing in this church.

I met Mike and Renee when I was their discipler at Sonship Week in 1999 in Chattanooga, when Mike was the Assoc Pastor of New City Fellowship there.  I remember how awkward I felt, as a white guy, trying to tell a black couple about anything spiritual, in light of the paternalistic history of whites toward blacks in America, and in the light of how-much-more suffering black believers have endured.  And I told them that.  They were so gracious toward me.  And then Mike took a church in Atlanta, and now St Louis, while also being Dean of Students at Covenant Seminary.  But Jesus used this film to touch something deep within me. I’m struggling here, trying to explain it.
