There is a Facebook effort titled "Reviving CRAID" discussing the need for public conversations on racial images in worship. This noble effort is investigating the best methods for reviving CRAID in 2014. Imam W. Deen Mohammed gave us C.R.A.I.D early in his leadership and it was quite effective.
Another Facebook group I manage is titled "GIVE GOD NO COLOR." (https://m.facebook.com/groups/136138373208123)
It has been widely received and opened the following exchange :
Last week one of our Focolare friends shared with me a beautiful report. While planning for their annual "Day of Christian Unity" the company that supplies the artwork for this special day sent them a very; as she described it, "a very white American looking image of Jesus." However due to her being a part of our FB group "GIVE GOD NO COLOR" and her love for our concern she called the supply company and told them that they could not accept such an image or any racial depictions. This is very significant. We thank Allah for bringing Imam W. Deen Mohammed and the blessed lady Chiara Lubrich and their respective communities together as ONE! This is a way to advance the message of C.R.A.I.D. to an audience that we could probably never reach.
Join WORDS MAKE PEOPLE on Sunday October 19, 2014 as we discuss C.R.A.I.D; its history and relevancy today.
