Rev. Ben Campbell

The cover story for STYLE Weekly today is about an old friend, Rev. Ben Campbell, who has been the pastoral director of Richmond Hill for the last 22 years.
“The whole New Testament is the story of breaking down barriers of race,” he says. “The word gentile means ‘ethnic group.’ Nobody tells you that, but that’s what the word means. So when [Jesus] talks about Jews and gentiles, he’s actually just talking about ethnic groups, not just different religions.”

Thanks for this link. I met Ben years ago at a retreat I attended at Richmond Hill. How funny that his work is called "bridge work" - as that was the very topic he & I discussed during a ride in his car all those years ago!
