In “Equal Access” (Ephesians 2:11-22), Pastor Terry Dudley, asked, “Why are our churches half-full?” He then answered “Because we are prejudiced, not necessarily racist, making decisions about the way we interact based on superficial preferences.  These may be unfamiliar cultures, different traditions, or fear of rejection that create walls that separate. But, Christ died to break down walls and provide equal access to salvation.  We, too, should nurture equal access and fellowship between churches and within congregations and serve as lighthouses, restaurants for spiritual food, lifeboats, and safe places for harmonious and unified worship.
