I’m a Lutheran
February is Black History Month. Sunday morning is often described as the most segregated hour in the United States. The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America is a predominantly white church, but it’s Darryl W. Jones home. He grew up in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania and attended St. James Lutheran Church. His family was the only African American family in the congregation at that time. Click the link below to visit our Adult page to hear more of his story.
