The Art of Connectivity – A Call to Unity Within a Diverse Society

“Eradicating/Minimizing Opposition Forces”

Jeremiah 29:11 - "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and
not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
(NIV)



How can we work together to eradicate/minimize oppositional forces that negates one’s ability to move forward productively and prosperously? This question has plagued the American people for hundreds of years. It can be said that the aforementioned question is the dream of many mothers, fathers, children, families and friends. Nevertheless, there are periods in American history, which reveals stories of religious and educational segregation, racial divisions, social and economic unrest and various abnormalities? So, how do we agree to disagree? How do we leave any conversation with present and futuristic hope, prosperity and glimpses of another’s perspective? Lastly, how do can we hear other beliefs and possibilities (while standing on a solid foundation) without verbal and physical confrontations?


When we embrace "The Art of Connectivity" as a personal quest, it will assist individuals by embracing their ancestral history while recognizing areas of disconnection and mapping out future possibilities. It
will engage leaders and the laity to recognize and correct negated and chaotic circumstances in their lives, in the church and in the local community. It addresses and embraces Christian educational methodologies, self-help, interdependence (unity) strategies for holistic empowerment.



"The Art of Connectivity" will also address evangelism and missions both locally and abroad; it will serve to eradicate/minimize oppositional forces within self and the church (leaders and laities). If followed and embraced, "The Art of Connectivity," will help guide you with "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." (Jeremiah 29:11 - NIV).
