  • Analysis Of The Upside Down Kingdom

    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. Kraybill states, for example, “Justice has become a worn out, hallow expression, an abstract and detached battle cry.” The congregation struggles, just as Kraybill stated much of society does with honoring the true implications of injustices that effect so many. The primary function of society becomes a reaffirmation, protection, and perpetuation of this “collective or common conscience.” I hope to provide the congregation with the opportunity to hear concepts in new and direct ways that reflect our true calling as a community of Christ, but further more as human beings. It is my hope to help open the eyes of the congregation to see the real needs of our community. 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…
