Whom shall I send?

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
- Isaiah 6:8, NRSV

From Eddie McCoven, church staff member:

We give thanks to God and rejoice with our beloved sister, Cyndi Jones, for her ordination and call to ministry.

Cyndi was a part of our faith community for a year as our pastoral intern. She learned a lot from us, and we equally learned a lot from her. 

She will serve the worshiping community of Atonement Lutheran Church here in San Diego, as well as serve the Pacifica Synod for Disability Awareness ministry. 

Our prayers are with her as she lives out her call to ministry in Christ's holy church.

Here's the full video from the ordination:

Yes, in God's back yard

From Eddie McCoven, church staff member:

Through our building project "God's Vision, Nuestra Misión", we discovered a way to help with the growing housing issue in San Diego.  We answered God's call to not just to build a new Fellowship Hall, but to also build affordable housing on church property.

Turns out, we're not the only group of people who had that idea.  A group of community leaders was also looking into ways faith communities, like ours, could help ease the housing crunch. This group's campaign is called "Yes, in God's back yard."

While we still have considerable time and city approvals to go through, our hope is to be able to offer some San Diegans a low cost roof over their head. In fact, our project could be the prototype of the "Yes, in God's back yard" initiative. 

In the meantime, our efforts, and that of YIGBY, caught the attention of local news outlets.
