Some in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) may already know that the Rev. Alvin Jackson has been called as senior minister at Park Avenue Christian Church in New York City.

We at DisciplesWorld reported on this earlier in the week, and now New York Times reporter Michael Luo has written a piece about Jackson’s fresh start with the historic Disciples congregation.

In light of Luo’s article, I looked back at our coverage of the story as it unfolded 3 years ago. I think we were fair. There were some who accused us of racism. That still hurts.

In any case, we wish him well.
