  • 5.4 Tremor Rattles Los Angeles
  • I was having lunch with a pastoral colleague when the ground began to move. We were near the marina, and could see the nearby boats swaying. All around us, glass was shaking. And the building seemed to be rolling. There was no doubt about it. It was an earthquake. We sat quietly for the next several minutes after it ended, waiting for aftershocks. There were none. Yet.

    There has been no reports of hurt or harm to any in our membership or extending family of loved-ones. We are grateful to God for his sustaining grace and sparing mercy.

    Thanks to all who have texted or emailed me or called to check on us. We are fine, praise God. Thanks again for your prayers and concern. Continue to pray for us.
