MultiAsian.Church: A Future for Asian Americans in a Multiethnic World
MultiAsian.Church is a strategic guide for ministry for Asian Americans (and non-Asians too) in a multiethnic world. Sovereignly having a bicultural background, many next generation Asian Americans are uniquely adaptable to navigate in our racialized society in a hopeful and Gospel-sharing way through a growing number of next generation multi-Asian churches, a new phrase to describe this new kind of multiethnic church led by Asian Americans. DJ Chuang has packed this book with the latest statistics, real-life examples, stories, and recommendations to quickly inject the reader with pertinent information for ministering among the fastest growing racial ethnic group in America.

New Google Sites doesn't have sitemaps (yet?)
Since November 2017, Google has not added a sitemap function to the new Google Site, even though it was and still is available in the Classic Google Site.
Workaround for Sitemap of a New Google Site
The best answer comes from Rotary Steve:
Sitemaps do not influence indexing and/or ranking in google. All it does is help googlebot find your pages to be indexed. I made a sitemap page in my new site as an experiment. Though, if your home page has all of the links in its navigation, just Ask Google to recrawl your URL's and then Select the option to "Crawl this URL and its direct links". Kind of serves the purpose of the sitemap, just not as efficient.
Why Google doesn't make new Google Sites better?
Yes, a big part of Google's revenue stream is Ads on its search engine results. You'd think that by making the new Google Sites platform to be more (search engine optimization) SEO-friendly would make it more popular for quality content. Instead, we have websites that are built on other CMSes and platforms that can't keep up with the tweaks and modifications to the secret proprietary Google ranking algorithm.
All we can do is speculate, at this time, as to the why,
From what we can see of the new Google Sites' features and functions, it looks like the new Google Sites platform is all about having a nice website builder for G Suite customers and creating team sites.
