What is a System?
• A system affects the whole not only the parts, which is why we call its effect “systemic.” Systematic is doing something in steps.
• Systems are embedded within and spread throughout and affecting a group, system, body, economy, market, or community.
• Systems can either contribute to your failure or to your success, but you get to decide.
Common Systems In Our Lives
Public Health (vaccines)
Law & Justice
Psalm 103:19 NLT, "The Lord has made the heavens his throne; from there he rules over everything."
• You were born into a world and nation with systems already in place
• Many systems were invented to help you (Family, Education, Kingdom of God).
• Some systems were invented to control people (Segregation & Jim Crow in the past, White Supremacy today).
• Some systems were invented to explain/expose other systems (Direct Action, Critical Race Theory)
