The Three Little Kids is a Hip Hop Cultural awareness play which is designed to self-empower our community by coursing the residents through a rite of passage. The production ensemble will journey through a rite of passage by learning, producing and performing a full scale production. The 3LK is produced to bridge the gap between adults and young people to heal the misunderstanding about Hip Hop culture. We see the future in which all organizations can work hand and hand to bring back the unity in our communities. We believe that this will continue to inspire the neighborhood to imagine and build its own destiny.

The Three Little Kids is based on the fairy, The Three Little Pigs, which has a Hip Hop twist to it. The Three Little Kids is a story of three kids who grow up in the community and would do anything for a record deal. The three little kids have real talent and never realized they had enough knowledge, wisdom and understanding to get them where they wanted to go. Wolf Daddy discovers the kids first and uses them to get his pockets phatt. He preyed upon Dumb because he knew that Dumb never like to read or write. He preyed upon Deaf because he knew that Deaf never like to hear what anyone kicked in his ear and Blind, Blind never saw her future, he just live for now. Wolf Daddy knew she was materialistic and had his peanut gallery Huff and Puff seduce her with jewelry and rides wherever she wanted to go.

Neighborhoods: What is Working

How to Connect Neighborhood Churches to Your Local Community

Transcription of John and Peter's February 20, 2018 conversation with Paul Sparks, a leading voice in the growing Parish Movement. Paul has worked in more than 1,000 neighborhoods around the world to identify, connect, and support groups that want to have their neighborhoods flourish. In their conversation Paul talked about his own and his colleagues' work with local churches, academic institutions, and community organizations in the United States and abroad and offered ideas on how to translate their experiences into their listeners' own community-building work.

How a few plants, a mural, and less pavement could bring more to a neighborhood than one big ministry.
