What was important was whether we were glorifying God in our marriage through our relating to one another.
We knew we were the same in Christ, but culturally we were so different. Like many newlyweds, we had much to work through, with the added fear that as I became one with my husband I would lose a major part of who I was as a black female. God created my husband and me equally and God saved us by the same grace (Ephesians 2:8-9).
We have a blast enjoying our various styles of worship and listening and at the same time exposing our children to both.
