“I believe that if we are not careful we will assume that we have
been inclusive and that we are being diverse.”

The word “proximity”, according to Merriam-Webster, is “the quality or state of being proximate: closeness”. Most would assume this only deals with distance from one point to another, but they would miss a much broader and deeper meaning of the word. This work will focus on how close you do or do not find yourself to others within your community, churches, neighborhoods, civic organizations, etc..., the relationships that do or do not exist and some thoughts that may help bring you closer to others.
The work of Proximity is Kingdom work. Work designed to close gaps that present themselves specifically within the Body of Christ. This has always been purposed to draw us closer, with hopes of drawing those not in a relationship with Christ, closer to that point because of the testimony of present unity."
