“They were in one place, they were of one accord, they were of one heart, they had one purpose, they had one vision…When we have the unity of Acts, we’ll have the power of Acts,” Warren continued. ”We’re just not willing to pay the price for Pentecost. We’re not willing to set aside our petty differences and unify around one thing: the Lord Jesus Christ.”
While racism isn't the only hurdle to overcome to achieve a unified Christian church, Warren noted, it is a major issue in his crosshairs. He recalled convening with a group of other pastors after the race riots in Charlottesville to discuss what could be done, saying, “…we’re not going to have revival if 11 o’clock on Sunday morning is still the most segregated hour in America."
