Author Stephen P. McCutchanabout this book: In 1992, when Winston-Salem, NC was experiencing significant racial tension, three pastors, two African American and one Caucasian, had lunch together and explored what they could do to combat racism and build community across racial lines. This book tells the story of the twenty years that followed that lunch and the surprising ways that six churches found to reach across not only racial lines but also age, faith, ethnicity, and political lines and built community. In their story, one can learn practical lessons in overcoming division and experience how practicing one's faith can surprise everyone.

As one pastor said, "It is amazing what happens when people break bread together." From nursing home visits to creating a parallel youth dialogue, from advocating for the police review board to speaking on behalf of a more racially sensitive education system, from building Habitat houses to having interfaith worship services, ordinary people discovered surprising commonalities and appreciation of the value of differences.

You are invited to share their story and decide who you would like to invite to lunch.
