AMWS December 25, 2020 #GeorgiaOnMyMind – Georgia voters, 79% of whom share a global value with some 2.4 billion Christians, are at the center of a contentious runoff election for the last two U.S. Senate seats.
“Good people” are on both sides of a uniquely balanced electorate. From the right, a red Georgia win means maintaining #EconomicSecurity for a few. From the left, a blue Georgia win means obtaining #EconomicSecurity for all.
With all the negative rhetoric spewed digitally, it’s been almost impossible to see the win-win in Georgia as a model PURPLE STATE. It took one blind man with #GeorgiaOnMyMind to see neither RED nor BLUE, but PURPLE. The vision, which always seems to tarry, will surely come—perhaps from Georgia, perhaps on January 5, 2021.
TODAY, 79% of Georgia voters can find hope in #JesusIsTheReasonForTheSeason. We need an evidence-based vision of #GeorgiaOnMyMind. In a nutshell, it needs to be shared within the context of inclusive #EconomicSecurity.
Our sponsors suggested talking points with multimedia aides to augment fact checking.
Christmas Story 1 A.D., the first Christmas emerged from a vision of the future. In 2014, faith leaders heard the story from an inclusive point of view. A sermon this week, “I told you so,” presents a Christmas-past vision of the future. Ironically, both timeless messages came out of Ebenezer.
Christmas Story 1960 A.D, a young politician shared a vision of the future – “A rising tide lifts all the boats.” John F. Kennedy saw, “if we are moving ahead in agriculture, if we are moving ahead in industry, if we have an administration that looks ahead, then the country prospers. But if one section of the country is strangled, if one section of the country is standing still, then sooner or later a dropping tide drops all the boats, whether the boats are in Boston or whether they are in this community.
Christmas Story 1995-1999 A.D. #ProjectVictoryAmerica, evolved from within a 300-voice choir at Ebenezer AME Church, Ft. Washington, MD. From a Revelation 14:3 Bible Study, the vision for a bigger choir in a bigger choir stand inspired federal grant development to benefit future generations. The song, “We can sing in harmony” offered inclusivity for young Americans graduating from high school in the year 2000. Depending on your faith, Revelation 14:3 envisions a 144,000 voice choir. As young believers embraced the motto, “ I believe I can achieve whatever I believe I can achieve,” their written goals evolved from impossible dreams to endless possibilities.
Christmas Story 2016-2019 A.D. #WeThePeople at-risk. Kwanzaa Court presented Afrocentric value in a vision of Justice for All.
Christmas Story 2021 A.D. #ProjectVictoryAmerica celebrates the dawning of a new era in governing. It introduces #GeorgiaOnMyMind as an inclusive outcome for RED and BLUE politics. The color PURPLE reflects a vision of the future where, #GeorgiaOnMyMind, “A rising tide lifts all the boats.”
Christmas Story 2030 A.D. #ProjectVictoryAmerica celebrates a new generation of Americans reconnected to its historic values. In today’s vision of the future, #NoPoverty2030 emerges from a 21st century conversation to a 21st century sustainable reality.
