"In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God”.

This is the very first verse in The Bible, the best selling book in the world, literally! Whether you call yourself a Christian or not, the impact this book has had over the entire planet is undeniable. The first sentence of a literary work sets the stage for the overall message, so in this case for “words” to be chosen as the focus of that sentence says a lot.

Everyone of us has a voice and words are the “building blocks” of that voice. Language therefore is much more than a method of communication but a declaration of the soul. Through the five senses we learn, though our words we reveal. On the flip-side of that coin, ironically, we also use words to conceal via devices such as staged speech in social settings to flat out lying. This robs the world of the unique gift each of us was put on Earth to share.

If you are weary from the various “masks” we all encounter throughout our days Word Church is perfect for you! It is a two and a half hour event at Catland, located in the heart of Brooklyn, NY featuring poetry reading, acapella hiphop, spoken word, stand-up comedy and more. It is a place where we “strip down” all the way to the spirit and share the true essence of who & what we truly are. If you aren’t too afraid come join us. Everybody has a story to tell.
