& Campaign 2020 political strategy
DHATI LEWIS CHURCH FEATURED THE & CAMPAIGN AND JUSTIN GIBONEY AS PART OF BLUEPRINT CHURCH “ALL THINGS NEW ” EVENT.
Giboney immediately asserts the & Campaign 3rd way political narrative and say that
Christians “go all the way to the right then you are sacrificing some of your compassion”.
& CAMPAIGN IS OFFERING TO WED SO CALLED “BIBLICAL VALUES & SOCIAL JUSTICE” BUT IS IN FACT OPERATED BY THE OBAMA FOUNDATION FAITH AMBASSADOR MICHAEL WEAR & A DEMOCRATIC PARTY OBAMA DELEGATE AND STRATEGIST.
THERE IS NOTHING NEUTRAL OF THIRD WAY ABOUT & CAMPAIGN
“To improve how Christians engage politics and culture and to disrupt America’s sociopolitical arena by asserting the justice and righteousness of Jesus Christ.”
The AND Campaign
Young urban Christians are determined to reassert ourselves into America’s political & cultural arena. We refuse to settle for civic & community engagement that forces us to either neglect our compassion or surrender our convictions. From mass incarceration to the right to life, it’s time to engage in advocacy that better reflects the love & truth of the Gospel. Join Christian thinkers, strategists and artists as we map out a path to New Thinking, New Engagement & New Politics. The next movement begins here…

Day 1 -Sho Baraka: The And Campaign
July 26, 2016 • Dhati Lewis ft. Sho Baraka • 21 Days of Reflection
Pastor Dhati Lewis middle name is BARAKA which is Arabic and Islamic for “BLESSING ”
BARAKA ALSO HAS MEANING IN
“Baraka is a prominent concept in Islamic mysticism, particularly Sufism. It pervades Sufi texts, beliefs, practices, and spirituality. Sufism emphasizes the importance of esoteric knowledge and the spiritual union with God through the heart. Baraka symbolizes this connection between the divine and the worldly through God’s direct and intentional blessing of those that are most reflective of Him and his teachings.”
“Baraka is not a state, it is a flow of blessings and grace. It flows from God to those that are closest to God, such as saints and prophets. Those that have received baraka are thought to have the abilities to perform miracles (karamat), such as thought-reading, healing the sick, flying, and reviving the dead. However, according to Abd al-Karīm ibn Hawāzin Qushayri, a prominent Sufi mystic, the use of these miracles and the actual possession of these abilities are not indicative of a saint’s status, however, the performance of these miracles by prophets is important to establish credentials.”

REDISTRICTING THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST CONVENTION ONE CHURCH PLANT AT A TIME
Blueprint church is a NAMB / Southern Baptist Church plant led by the Vice President of the NAMB’s Send Network in charge of church planting . & Campaign has at least a half dozen leaders involved who pastor SBC/ NAMB/ Send Network churches. Lewis position at NAMB places a massive SBC missions budget at his disposal.
SOMEONE is the SBC & NAMB appears VERY INTERESTED in its urban churches buying into & Campaigns Democratic party strategist and Obama Foundation Ambassadors THIRD WAY POLITICAL strategy for 2020 . Beside the usual suspects and obvious NEVER Trumpers Russell Moore and his devotees… just who in the SBC and NAMB is thus inclined and WHY?
