Louisville KY & Muhammad Ali Airport

As I get ready for CNU 27 Tuesday, I was surprised to learn Louisville renamed Louisville Intl Airport (SDF) in honor of Muhammad Ali, joining their downtown arena in honoring the famous olympian & social justice champion.

Some members believe in Jesus, others Jehovah, some are atheists. Some consider the … Continue reading Moving On: My Upside Down Church
