EVENTS
​The DoYouKnowMe Choir has been able to appear at a variety of church and civic events, including the July 22nd BBQ and picnic.  We would love to have you join us! The choir is a fun and meaningful way to connect with people outside your normal "sphere" of life. We perform and accompany music from contemporary to gospel - from Negro Spirituals - to Cultural drums and dancers.  

Shared music & story have been a great help as we begin to know & understand each other. Be part of this weapon for peace!
JOIN the DOYOUKNOWME CHOIR! 

We are always looking for voices and musicians who can join us for community and outreach events.  We are seeking voices of people who care about bringing our communities together - and how well you sing is a secondary issue!  We realize that you are busy but, if you have any interest please let us know.  It is a great experience as we come together and sing.

WE WILL HAVE ONE REHEARSAL BEFORE EACH EVENT

EVERYONE IS WELCOME!

Do You Know Me?
​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 relationship without partiality or prejudice. I have 6 examples of what this focus on “knowing” might accomplish...


1) WE SEEK PEACE BY REDUCING THE KIND OF 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.
