Do You Know Me?

Understanding & Overcoming our differences through relationship.

ABOUT

With diversity on the increase - our understanding of each other declines. We find ourselves behind ethnic & cultural walls, built by Media, Stereotype, Rhetoric and "Instant" judgments.  We must be proactive about
LOVING ALL our "neighbors."   Only relationship can bear the load of building trust - from a history of division
                                                                                            VISION of DoYouKnowMe.org

WHY BOTHER?  WHY REACH OUT?  WHY ASK THE QUESTION... DO YOU KNOW ME?  

It is our desire to spread peace in our neighborhoods, communities and the nation - by encouraging & helping people to engage in a relationship without partiality or prejudice. Please consider these six examples of what our coming together might accomplish...

1) WE SEEK PEACE BY REDUCING SOME OF THE TENSION THAT CAN LEAD TO DESTRUCTIVE BEHAVIOR.  IT CAN BE IN PERSON OR ON SOCIAL MEDIA BUT, ONGOING TENSIONS BETWEEN PEOPLE & “GROUPS” ARE ALREADY LEADING TO BEATINGS, SHOOTINGS, RIOTS, RAPE, VANDALISM ETC. WHETHER PREJUDICE IS PERSONAL OR PUBLIC – DISCOVERING WHO SOMEONE REALLY IS DEFLATES ANGER & ALLOWS PEOPLE TO DEAL WITH DIVISION OR CONFLICT IN A HEALTHY WAY.
2) WE DESIRE TO BUILD UNITY IN THE CHURCH. TO DWELL IN HARMONY AND REDEEM HER IDENTITY TO THE WORLD. THIS WOULD BE DONE BY BUILDING RELATIONSHIP & CONNECTION ON A PERSONAL LEVEL.
3) WE CAN REDUCE TENSION AND DISCORD BY HELPING PEOPLE TO IDENTIFY STEREOTYPE AND EMPTY RHETORIC AND LOOK TO FIND SOLUTIONS ON A PERSONAL LEVEL. THIS IS HOW WE CAN GIVE PEOPLE ON BOTH SIDES OF ANY ISSUE OPPORTUNITY TO HEAR AND VOICE DIFFERENCES PRODUCTIVELY.
4) WE CAN PROMOTE THE VALUE OF NEW & DIFFERENT PEOPLE IN OUR PATH (DIVERSITY) AND BEGIN TO EXPECT A BLESSING - EVEN AS WE LOVE AND SERVE THE OTHER.
5) OUR APPROACH OF “KNOWING” BELOW THE SKIN, BRINGS THIS CONTENTIOUS, CONFUSING, POLARIZING AND IMPERSONAL WORLD ISSUES DOWN TO A PERSONAL LEVEL. PEOPLE ARE CONNECTED AND SEE HOW THEY ARE MAKING REAL PROGRESS – ONE PERSON AT A TIME.
6) WE CAN HELP PEOPLE GAIN BROADER PERSPECTIVE. TO LEARN PATIENCE AND SKILLS TO HELP IN EVERY CONTEXT OF CONFLICT OR DISCOVERY. TO DISARM MISUNDERSTANDINGS AND OFFENSE BY HELPING IDENTIFY WAYS TO RESTORE OR BUILD TRUST.
