Can people actually touch the reality that Paul talks about in his letter to the Ephesians, a reality where Christ has "broken down the dividing wall"? The experience of Oakhurst Presbyterian Church says "Yes!" Over the last decade, Oakhurst Presbyterian Church in Decatur, Georgia, has been nationally recognized as a model of a successful multicultural church. Here, in O Lord, Hold Our Hands, pastors Nib Stroupe and Caroline Leach share their story -- with all of its peaks and valleys -- and, in doing so, provide a guide to multicultural ministry that any church can use to build or enhance its own ministry.
