The Christmas story took an urban jazzy twist Saturday night at the First Baptist Church of Glenarden during a musical production titled “The Uncut Coming of Christ,” where the story of the birth of the Christ child was set on the “mean streets” of a big city.

From Joseph arguing with Mary about her sudden pregnancy, to the seedy hotel district where Jesus was born, the production was the vision of writer/director Joshua Jenkins, whose production was inspired by his work as a Prince George’s County police officer.

Every Sunday, parishioners and passerby who visit the First Baptist Church of Glenarden can seek first aid at the church’s clinic, but the entire worship center became a hub for health education Saturday during the church’s 21st annual health expo.

More than 2,000 people attended this year’s expo, which featured more than 80 workshops, demonstrations, and health screenings as well as a keynote address from Ruben Studdard, American Idol winner and Biggest Loser contestant.
 Sporting a 100-pound lighter frame, “American Idol” veteran Ruben Studdard came with words of encouragement instead of music to the 21st Annual Health and Fitness Expo at the First Baptist Church of Glenarden on Saturday.

While Studdard offered a few bars of “Amazing Grace,” the R&B singer and realty TV star spent most of his time talking about his struggle to lose weight and his new life.

Studdard joined doctors, dentists, and a range of health care providers at the Upper Marlboro church. He along with a nutritionist, physical fitness expert and an energetic cook were on hand to show several thousand people that they can live a healthy lifestyle.
For years, Roger Leonard served as a “corner man” for his brother, boxing champion Sugar Ray Leonard. During his brother’s bouts, Leonard helped with advice and strategy from the sideline so the legendary boxer could become the icon he is today.

On Friday evening, Leonard symbolically reprised his role as “corner man” in a boxing ring set up at the First Baptist Church of Glenarden, where he was part of a dramatized sparring session to show that Christian men often need someone to keep them from being “blinded by the Devil” in the match of life.
