Core Connectivity is a 2017 recipient of the Power of One award of the Interfaith Council of Greater Sacramento and the California State Assembly.

On May 17, the Interfaith Council of Greater Sacramento recognized Core Connectivity as a public charity doing good work for the community at their “Power of One” annual event with a certificate of appreciation from Assemblymember Kevin McCarty and a generous donation of $1,500. We were in amazing company. Bread of Life was celebrated for giving back to the community a genuine understanding of spiritual identity, and the following individuals were honored for their outstanding contributions to the community with acts of faith that make life better and offer great hope for the future: Sister Claire Graham, Reverend Jim Hare, Ms. Jan Merrill, and Dr. Oscar Wright.

I want to thank Jon Fish, ICGS president and the ICGS board for this incredible honor, and for the work they do every day to sustain an interfaith culture so essential to civil liberty and our capacity to strengthen families and community. The most important thing I have learned in the past 12 years of pursuing this mission to defend love in the family in a cyber-powered world, is that faith as a practical matter transcends religious dogma.
As an American, with a heart for Jesus Christ, which is my own choice, I have come to deeply appreciate my faith as a belief system created by the powers of my soul. This power to choose what to believe about my own purpose and power is the mustard seed of faith granted by God to every human being, regardless of creed or social and ethnic background. Therefore faith cannot be micromanaged, but it can be learned, shared, nurtured and developed through life experience.
The challenge for us and our children today is to declare and hold fast to our own belief about the very personal role of God in our lives in order to respond with confidence to the many painful experiences and fear-based paradigms hyped in the global social network with great intensity. Indeed it is easy to believe things that are not true (my social network is a single point of reference for life) and focus on things that don’t really matter (the number of likes and followers in my network defines my worth).
The resilience we need to effectively address this power crisis mobile connectivity introduces into youth and family life is found in the boundary of the parent-child bond and expressed as family culture. I remain eternally grateful to God for this passion to teach people how create a family culture of mutual trust and respect for every individual. For this is the hope: when we take charge of our family culture in ways that build resilience, we are indeed equipping ourselves and our children to learn from life experience and choose to become better versions of ourselves according to the discipline of our chosen faith, regardless of current circumstances and our past.

About:  We are a non-profit education center founded in Roseville, CA to strengthen the parent-child bond in a hyper-connected world. Our mission is to restore families with the mustard seed of faith that declares liberty already belongs to the soul because one God, the Creator of all humanity, grants every human being intelligence and free will to choose what to believe, and that is power that can never be taken, but is easily surrendered to the bully, the drug or the device. To that end, ten percent of all proceeds are donated to prison ministries. Your donations are greatly appreciated. (Donations are payable to Banana Moments Foundation).
