How can the church help ease racial tensions gripping America today?

Bishop T.D. Jakes and other Christian leaders gathered at the Orange County Convention Center for “The

Reconciled Church Summit” Wednesday to discuss solutions.

The Orlando, Florida event convened at a time when America is grappling with racism and injustice.

Presently, the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray who sustained a fatal spinal injury while in police

custody has heightened racial tensions.

“We did not formulate this event to event to cast blame or to make anyone feel guilty or to say who is at

fault or to race bait or to bicker or to complain,” said Jakes, 57.

According to the pastor of The Potter’s House in Dallas, leaders are coming together to stop America from

continuing on a course leading to an inevitable racial implosion.

“I compare it to a plane that is about ready to go down in flames,” said Jakes, who is also one of the

founding members of The Reconciled Church. “If we don’t pull up now, and fast, we’re going to crash and

burn.”
