Our practice at ThingsAbove.Us is to write about whatever we want always with an end goal toward our mission and to have some fun too. Sometimes that’s verse-by-verse exegesis. Other times, that means critiquing pro sports. Once in a while, we write articles that help you think through current events such as political or social issues.
