January 31, 2010: “YOU Be Jesus!”

Posted on : Jan 28th, 2010 | By | Category: This Sunday's Service

Who would have ever believed that for our first all-church service opportunity we have over 33 people signed up for our own version of “EXTREME MAKEOVER” as we partner with our friends at Oportunidad! WOW. This is fabulous!!!

Last Sunday, Julia Garcia – the minister/director of Oportunidad spoke during the sermon. She spoke with such passion about the ministry of Oportunidad. Oportunidad is a spiritual community serving gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender homeless people who live mostly beneath freeway underpasses near the MacArthur park area. Almost all of the people they serve are addicted to drugs and alcohol as a means of survival. These persons have been told they are worthless by their culture and their churches and have become “throw-aways.” Kobie wrote about us being a “throw away” society in this week’s reflection.
