LOS ANGELES — The Passion for Christ Movement, P4CM, will be holding its 9th annual Rhetoric on August 7th at Cottonwood Church at. With well over 3500 in attendance (and even more viewing over the web), Rhetoric is the world’s largest (and livest) poetry event with participants travelling from across the globe to attend.
Each performance at Rhetoric will correspond with the theme, Real & Raw, exploring subjects not traditionally discussed in Christian circles. Previous year’s poems addressed topics ranging from sexual molestation and abuse to overcoming homosexuality, AIDS, losing to cancer, self-worth and more.
“If we want to change the world, we have to be willing to speak boldly about matters others are too uncomfortable to address,” said Adrianne Chivers, P4CM’s head of production. “This year’s show will encourage Christians to be ‘Real & Raw’, regardless of their circumstance”, she added.
Delivering this truth, will be P4CM’s official poets, Jackie Hill Perry, Janette…Ikz, Ezekiel, Preston Perry, Jose Palos and many more. There will also be musical performances by Leah Smith – most known for her song “Beautifully Made.”
Past year’s shows have included musical performances from singer-songwriter, Christon Gray, Christian rapper, R-Swift, as well as music from the energetic spoken word/hip hop group, The Breax (now called Dream Junkies).
Rhetoric has been endorsed by some of the top names in Christian music including Grammy award winners Lecrae, Warryn and Erica Campbell as well as Andy Mineo, Trip Lee, Da Truth and more.
Tickets for Rhetoric are now available for purchase online at http://rhetoric.p4cm.com. For more information and future announcements about Rhetoric, the Passion for Christ Movement or its artists, please visit www.p4cm.com or follow P4CM on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube or Twitter.

It is time for the US Premiere of Darkside, incorporating Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon, and you are invited. Is it an incredibly unique theatrical experience, or is it a thought experiment in any colour you like? This great gig in the sky is an urgent, yet timeless tale where Emily McCoy and her companion become lost on the run, in a world consumed by corruption, money and greed, witch hunts and brain damage. All the while, desperately searching for hope, kindness and what is the good. It's us and them, coming together in a beautiful eclipse for only this moment. Just breathe. And be there.

The event will take place in the parking lot of Assemblyman Hadley’s District Office in Torrance, Calif. and donors are also invited to bring their furry friends along that day. All donations will go to the Carson Animal Care Center, a high-intake shelter in Los Angeles County that services the South Bay region, who will be on hand at the event with some of their adoptables. We are asking for community donations of items including canned and dry food for dogs, cats, puppies and kittens; scoop-able cat litter; dog and cat treats; chew toys; housetraining pads; and food and water bowls.
In addition to helping animals, attendees will also have the opportunity to meet with representatives from the ASPCA’s Government Relations team and Assemblyman Hadley, to discuss ways to help strengthen animal welfare legislation in California.
