Oct 15 – Racial Reconciliation Workshop
On the 15th, I attended Fellowship Monrovia’s first Racial Reconciliation Workshop. Ines attended the same workshop last Saturday. About 100 diverse people from the church spent 6-7 hours together discussing racism and reconciliation. The workshop was “designed to introduce participants to the deceptive and destructive effects of racism in our lives and the body of Christ; and an opportunity to learn and experience the work of racial reconciliation.”
Oct 20 – Cousins Randy and Karen visit Cali

Oct 29 – Nina and Ryan Landis lead worship 1 mile from us!
Another Arkansas native came to town! Nina was a high school student when I first started volunteering with Younglife in 1997. It was great to see a familiar face and worship with her and her husband.
“But the father said to his servants, ‘Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let’s have a feast and celebrate. For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ So they began to celebrate.” Luke 15:22-24 NIV http://bible.com/111/luk.15.22-24.niv
