NEW YORK - More than 40 years have passed since the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. described 11 a.m. on Sundays as the most segregated hour of the week, and in all that time not much has changed. Look around on any given Sunday. Worship remains essentially a tribal act. Whites pray here, blacks pray there, and that, you might say, is that. "There are remarkably few congregations in this country that are truly integrated," said the Rev. William McD. Tully, the rector of St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church at Park Avenue and East 50th Street.
