The name of our Christian web community is Upadaria. It is pronounced you-pah-daria. It is a word that comes from the initials UPDR which stand for the four core ideals, or UPDR Ideals, of Unity in diversity, Popular sovereignty, Democratic equality, and Rule of law. The basic idea is that if we apply these ideals to governance in our relationships and associations, in balance with each other, then we will have good governance thay s fair and just and that benefits everyone.
So our community embodies the Biblical basis of these ideals not only for governance but to promote Christian self-reliance and empowerment.
The community will initially focus on:
1. Being a platform for members to connect to the world
2. Imparting a vision for Christian self-reliance and empowerment
3. Providing news and resources from a Christian perspective
4. Being a place where you can relax and be yourself as a Christian
You will see more as we proceed. Upadaria is meant to be a virtual refuge for Christians that empowers them to reach their world for Jesus.
