In her message “Kingdom Before Tribe”, delivered at the EDI- Economic Diplomacy and Integrity Forum and ROM – Renewing Our Minds Leadership Gathering in July and August 2017, Heather Nicola Staff spoke prophetically and with clarity very much needed at this time. She said that “Kingdom Before Tribe” means “knowing that our identity is in Jesus, and not in one’s party or political affiliation”. It is about “learning to disagree well”. It means “being the light and the salt to the world”.
