Love where you live!
It’s almost been a full year since the Pandemic first shut things down in La Mesa. We’ve had to resort to online connections and zoom meetings to get by. While tech has been a lifeline, it’s also led us to more Facebook fights and Twitter wars than we likely could have imagined.…Continue

Kids also get to be…Continue

But our world does not always feel that way, does it?
Our world can feel broken, twisted, and bleak sometimes.
And Advent doesn’t deny that…Continue
