Thank you CTA!
Please allow me to publicly thank CTA for their persistence and success in working on the "My Gospel Story by Colors" items. For many years, many companies who were trying to market this equated "black" with "sin" on their Gospel colors items directed to children and youth. Our church has been unable to purchase these items because our children of African heritage call themselves, "black". After conversation with CTA they have worked diligently and repeatedly to provide an acceptable product that gives an appropriate message without using the negative connotation that "black is sin". "Gray is for the sadness and gloominess of sin" is a great solution! The marketing used is so creative as well. Pictured is a "Black" child wearing a gray tee shirt, revising what has been completely unintentionally implied. Thank you CTA, for keeping your eyes on Jesus, your ears open to what is needed, and your hearts, minds and hands ready to work for His kingdom.
