African American visitor quickly introduced to Messianic congregation’s only African American member

BEND, OR. — When Rufus Lee King, who is African American, showed up for the first time at Kehilat Shalom last Saturday, greeters quickly summoned Moe Adim, their longstanding African American member. “I have someone I’d like you to meet,” said greeter Diane Tomichu. After introducing King and Adim, Tomichu took a few awkward steps back and said, “I’ll leave the two of you alone,” smiling like a matchmaker who brokered the perfect marriage.
