Great video about helping people who are homeless: Imagining what’s possible

Down the street from Union Church is a great organization called the Weingart Center. They made this beautiful video so that we can imagine what is possible by contributing our time and efforts towards ending homelessness. You’ll be glad you watched this video. Be one of the first to see it and share it.

As our church seeks ways to Love God and Bless the City, we look for great local organizations like Union Rescue Mission and the Los Angeles Mission to partner with. The Weingart Center is another we hope to work with more in the future.

Whom can you partner with in your city? God has placed you there to seek its blessing, prosperity and shalom–which means weaving back together all the broken places you see. Keep your eyes open for where God might be calling to to participate in the good He is already doing in your midst and help people imagine a new future like the video challenges us to do.

A Great Birthday Gift: The Story of the Bridge

Today I turn 42 and I’m sitting in LAX on my birthday waiting for a flight to Pittsburgh. The Bridge in downtown Los Angeles is being recognized at our annual national convention for its innovative partnerships as it seeks to be a blessing to the city in numerous ways.

I appreciate all the birthday love on Facebook especially since I’ll spend it travelling, SO my birthday request is that you’d watch and share the video so others will know our story and perhaps support us with prayer, a personal visit or sharing resources to reach the city.

It is truly a blessing to know that God is working in our little church in the second largest metro area in the nation as we seek to Love God and Bless the City. What a birthday gift!

Thanks for supporting me and my family on this adventure.
