|The view from my window.|
|Some day... my name will be... right there.|
And hearing this, Jesus said to them, "It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick; I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners. Mark 2:17It's not that I think this is a city full of sinners, not at all in fact. It just seems to me that this is exaclty where God wants to work the most. I was a little overwhelmed at first because it has always been so easy for me to see where and how God works, and it's not so easy here in plastic-covered, bronzer-drenched Los Angeles. There are a lot of great things about this city - the sunshine, the relaxed atmosphere (what a break from the East coast!), the Mexican food... but all told, it seems like the City of Angels could use a few more angels, willing to look into the eyes of those around them, and a few less people caught up in the fabricated superfluity of Southern California. And a few less Lakers fans, but that's neither here nor there. The point is God does live in this city; it's just a matter of knowing where to look.
