I think that you can sense a great deal of discussion will be present on this topic. I am not certain if there is one answer. I would like to draw from the President's words on the topic, though. When running for President, then- Senator Obama delivered a speech entitled "A More Perfect Union." The wide ranging and expansive focus of the speech spent some time contrasting the experience of so- called "White" churches and those of so- called "Black" churches. One of the specific lines of mention that helps to bring out the difference in both services is the idea that "... that the most segregated hour in American life occurs on Sunday morning." Indeed, Senator Obama brings up the idea that the experiences of religious services in Catholic Mass and Baptist Services are uniquely different. This difference, he argues, is a critical point where decisions have to be made. Either, one can be content with this difference in expression. Where Baptist services and Catholic mass remains divided in their unique distinct expressions of spirituality. In the speech, Obama points out how Baptist services, such as the ones held at his own Trinity United reveled in intense displays of affection that would sharply contrast with the more refined demonstrations at Catholic mass. Obama challenges reader and listener to either be content with such differences. On the other hand, he suggests that individuals can accept these differences and seek to view them as dynamic, and not static, and seek to understand them and perhaps, overcome their negative propensities. In this, Obama argues that the differences between mass and service can serve as a "teachable moment" on race, spirituality, and American identity. The use of the Framers' of the Constitution line in the Preamble of "In order to form a more perfect union," underscores Obama's idea that while mass and service might be different, it can be a starting point where greater understanding can result. In this light, the difference between both is seen as a valid and divergent expression of political, spiritual, social, and psychological identity. While difference might be present, it does not have to be static, and it can be transformed into a comprhension that helps all to "form a more perfect union."
