Quick Overview:

How can we move our churches to become relevant, responsive, and reflective of the global community? That’s the question that Eric Michael Bryant poses in Peppermint-Filled Pinatas. With stories, observations, and thought-provoking suggestions, this book maps the way beyond ethnic, racial, and cultural barriers to the communities that Jesus wants us to have.
 
We live in a diverse world filled with unprecedented opportunity. There is a call to move past the barriers that stand between us and those who may be different. Eric Michael Bryant has seen tolerance shown to those who are different than us—racially, religiously, sexually, politically, economically—and believes there must be more. After all, Jesus didn’t just tolerate people; he embraced them all with love. Using lighthearted humor, engaging personal stories, and a “party theology,” Bryant shows us how to love our neighbors and fulfill the vision Jesus had for the church from the beginning. Whether that is through building relationships with the help of bounce houses, stand up comedy, or piñatas, followers of Christ will be inspired to actively engage the world around them.
