The family and I spent X'mas in the Bay area (Foster City/San Mateo) with my folks. It has been a stormy time here - tons of wind and tons of rain. Fallen trees and branches scattered all over the freeways . . . bad visibility . . . but hey, no snow! Had the opportunity to visit two churches this past Sunday. Highway Community, which meets at Palo Alto High School across from Stanford, and Vintage Faith, located way over the treacherous hill in beautiful Santa Cruz. Both of the worship gatherings we visited left us inspired and refreshed. We even participated in communion and prayer at Vintage - truly a remarkable experience (Tom prayed over us at the Prayer Cove). It gave me something tangible to reference "alternative church" from - resonated well with my soul. As the future lies in the balance, we are desperately seeking discernment and divine "spatial placement" from God.
Jesus Christ, son of God, have mercy on me a sinner.
