is making other innovative changes as it begins walking its path with Bishop

living for 20 years its multi-ethnic, multi-racial mission as a UU
congregation in the historic black Greenwood district of Tulsa and creation of a Center
for Racial Justice; The LivingRoom Church, an emerging church, has become a
role model already in how to do missional, incarnational community church
planting, and doing so in a multi-racial area that is the Tulsa zip code with
the lowest income and lowest life expectancy; Hope Church in south Tulsa
recently celebrated its 40th year and was part of the great outreach and expansion
of that time that has made the Tulsa area benefit from such a strong UU
