African American Lectionary Project

In 2006, The African American Lectionary Project sent questionnaires to 10,000 African American clergy of all denominations as well as a small percentage of non-denominational churches. The survey indicated that clergy believed that the following issues were important concerns of the African American community: (1) Strengthening Men and Boys and Women and Girls; (2) Strengthening Families; (3) Unemployment/Poverty/Economic Empowerment; (4) Violence in Our Communities; (5) Racism; (6) AIDS and Health Issues; (7) Finding Ways to Welcome All to the Church; (8) Drug Recovery; (9) Incarceration; (10) Strengthening Education (Secular and Christian Education); (11) Addressing the Problem of Greed; and (12) The Environment.
