"An Eye-Opening Experience" – AG News

In a transparent talk at a National Black Fellowship luncheon July 18, Church Multiplication Network Director Chris Railey confessed that he is in the beginning stages of a spiritual awakening regarding the ongoing struggles of African-Americans in the U.S.

In an address to a predominantly black audience, Railey explained that he earlier scrapped a prepared presentation for the biennial NBF conference at Peoples Church in Cincinnati. Instead, he felt God prompting him to be forthcoming about his longtime, albeit unintentional, acceptance of racial bias.

"It’s no longer an option to stay silent," Railey said. "We no longer have the luxury of staying in our worldview bubbles."
