and America answers back, "We are One"
The idea for "Bridging The Gap" was born out of the desire to bring together believers in Jesus Christ from Africa with Americans of African Descent that have been long removed from their countries and cultural identity. On both sides of the Atlantic Ocean there are myths about the African and their descendants during and after the times of slavery, which has brought resentment, and even hatred to many. The lies have been exaggerated in such a way that the history books depict the African as being inferior to people of other races and cultures.
On February 2nd in 1835, Lord Macaulay addressed the British Parliament with this statement: "I have traveled across the length and breadth of Africa and I have not seen one person who is a beggar, who is a thief and such wealth I have seen in the country, such high moral values, people of such caliber, that I do not think we would ever conquer this country, unless we break the very backbone of this nation, which is her spiritual and cultural heritage and therefore, I propose that we replace her old and ancient education system, her culture, for if the Africans think that all that is foreign and English is good and greater than their own, they will lose their self esteem, their native culture and they will become what we want them, a truly dominated nation.
"Our spiritual cry to Bridge the Gap is about the oneness of God's people, not to undue what has been done.
We must reconcile, reunite and become part of the
re-birthing as a Nation in the Kingdom of God".
