    I plan to create awareness, share information, and I hope to motivate people within the range of my voice to engage in the concept and calling of The Upside Down Kingdom. I further hope to engage the congregation, as well as individuals, in new ways of thinking about liberation, ethics, and justice. Within the context of the Abundant Life Center, I believe the true meaning of these words have been minimized or lack of direction given in our ministries.

Apostle Charles Neff said, “When I think of the mission of the Church, I am frequently compelled to recall the face of the poorest and most helpless person I have ever seen and ask myself if the program we are undertaking will be of any use to that person.” May this Praxis help us to look through that lens. Community of Christ is dedicated to upholding and…

Although often the antithesis of the archetypal protagonist, the antihero gains begrudged sympathy and an extent of understanding from the reader that separates itself from the concept of the antagonist. Despite…

    other than the one in A Clockwork Orange, directed by Stanley Kubrick (1971) of Alex Delarge as played by Malcolm Mcdowell when he is going to rape Mrs. Alexander while joyously recounting “singing in the rain.” Not even apart of the original screenplay as written by Anthony Burgess, Mcdowell adds a sense of deeper depravity to the situation by singing the tune mad-lib style. This scene finishes with Mr. and Mrs. Alexander tied and up and Alex telling Mr. Alexander “viddy well little brother,…
