… the forces of power, particularly corporate power, are impatient with what is adequate for a coherent community. Because power gains so little from community in the short run, it does not hesitate to destroy community for the long run.
I really wanna do a Spanish album. I have that Latin culture background. It’s a part of me. I’m not the best Spanish speaker, but I have a longing to connect with that. I just think how supportive the Latin community has been, even during ‘Idol.’ I’d like to give back with something like that.
Christianity nowadays is like a big household where many cousins live under the same roof. They all belong to the same clan, but at times they have very different ideas about how to run their family affairs. Some of them, for instance, have no use for any outside devotion. God is a spirit, and He...
We are one community even though we are separate towns.
The more we love, the more it hurts, and the more we have to let go.
Last year was the first year that the community 100 percent funded it on its own. So we put some of that away, and would like to eventually start an endowment … but we’re just so happy that we finally crested the hill and that we are well on our way.
The words we choose can build communities, reunite loved ones, and inspire others. They can be a catalyst for change. However, our words also have the power to destroy and divide: they can start a war, reduce a lifelong relationship to a collection of memories, or end a life.
Post office closures in the Dakotas and Minnesota will impact many communities, but the White Earth reservation villages, and other tribal towns of Squaw Lake, Ponemah, Brookston in Minnesota, and Manderson, Wounded Knee and Wakpala (South Dakota) as well as Mandaree in North Dakota will mean hardships for a largely Native community.
It’s very good for the university. We want to represent the greater community.
I’m hoping that the community is interested in seeing the culture grow in this community.
To help our members stay active, we try to have them become community volunteers among the YMCA. It is bigger than just the do it yourself. We help them set attainable goals and we help them reach those goals by keeping them connected in different ways through personal trainers, clubs and classes that we offer,...
There are very few issues that concern us more than the safety of our community,
Many people seek fellowship because they are afraid to be alone…let him who cannot be alone beware of community. He will do harm to himself and to the community. Alone you stood before God when he called you; alone you had to answer that call; alone you had to struggle and pray; and alone you...
In our lifetime, we have not seen a disease sweep through a community and people die so fast that there’s no one to take care of them at the hospital and there’s no one to bury them. That’s what will happen in a pandemic. It would be more deaths than all the world’s wars in...
I listened so hard because it felt like, while she was telling me stories, she was massaging my soul, letting me know that I was not alone, that I will never have to be alone, that there are friends and family and churches and coffee shops. I was not going to be cast into space.
I still intend to be in the community all summer, regardless of what happens next week.
It is very important that the UMKC community understands that Kansas City Rep is not leaving the UMKC campus, where we have been located for 42 years. We greatly value our home base at Spencer Theatre in the Performing Arts Center, and we recently invested in upgrading Spencer with new seats and other improvements. We...
