(RNS) The predominantly white United Methodist Church and five historically black denominations have agreed after more than a decade of discussions to enter a full communion agreement. By Adelle M. Banks.

    Very commendable for the Methodist church.
    Perhaps you can do a race relations article on the Seventh-day Adventist church which elected Black presidents to the world wide church and North American Division several years ago. Also, the diversity of leadership in all areas of the church is worth mentioning.

    Thanks for your comment, adventtruth. Does anyone else have recent examples of diverse leadership and/or improving race relations in denominations?
