I just found out that comedian Jim Gaffigan will perform at a fundraiser for All Saints.  I’m incredibly excited; Gaffigan is one of my comedy idols.  Here’s a clip of Jim talking about traditions.

Cook Breakfast for PATH Families

Hello, hello! Instead of doing our typical brunch this season (we are now doing Sunday brunches every few months), we are going to cook breakfast for homeless families.  Who’s with me???  I’m so glad…I’m a terrible cook 🙂 We are doing breakfast on February 26th, so y…ou can still watch the Oscar Awards that night and still go to church in the late morning.   Jonathan Roberts and Nate Hicks are getting the food/menu together and all we have to do is show up with smiling face, help set up, feed some lovely people we otherwise would probably not meet, and share a bit of love and lots of compassion. The meal will cost approximately $200, so we not only need volunteers, we need to contribute $10 from each person.  If you want to contribute but can’t volunteer, that is totally cool. If you can’t contribute and would love to volunteer, we are happy to have you. Who’s game?  Please RSVP.  More details to come!

Let’s Go Vegan!

‎40 DAYS OF VEGAN (for LENT) I’m going for it. Who’s in? Joshua Paget hooked me up with Vegan books so I don’t get emaciated & pass out. Let’s do this… We can blog about the journey, support one another, meet up at vegan restaurants, & reflect on its effect upon our lives spiritually. Wait…Booze is vegan, right?

Homeboy Industries @ Community House

Hollywood Pres has a intentional living community called DOOR.  Residents commit to a year of service and training, partnering with charity and social justice communities in the Hollywood area such as PATH and My Friends Place.

They are having a special event with Homeboy Industries.  This is a great opportunity for us All Saints kids to get exposed to HomeBoy Industries and to make connections with other young people working and living the Christian faith in Hollywood.
The D.O.O.R. Hollywood dwellers would like to invite you to the first of many special events featuring guests that have a desire to support La Casa de la Comunidad. Our hope at La Casa de la Communidad is to unite our neighborhood and surrounding area in a way that buil…ds a community of partners with a mutual desire to bridge the needs and resources of our community. If we can gather together, share our stories, and learn from each other, we will create a community of awareness that allows us to know our neighbors, meet the needs of the community, and share available resources. Homeboy Industries assists at-risk and formerly gang involved youth to become positive and contributing members of society.   Father Gregory Boyle recently outlined many of the stories of the ministry in his book, “Tattoos From the Heart.” COME HEAR STORIES, ASK QUESTIONS, AND BE CHANGED Light refreshments supporting Homeboy Bakery will be provided.

Later in the year, we’ll be forming a small group to read Tattoos on the Heart and going on a field trip to Homeboy Cafe.  So come get this unique sneak peak into the heart of many different organizations working together in LA.

February Gallery: CAFAM

The Craft and Folk Art Museum is the oldest Museum on “Museum Row” in the Miracle Mile area of Los Angeles.  (Later joined by LACMA, Page, A+D, and Peterson Automotive museums.)

It’s right across from the Page Museum and the La Brea Tar Pits.

We’re going to go on a Saturday.  The museum is small but on a Saturday afternoon we’ll take a walk and get some grub at the food truck alley along “The Mile” and eat in the park.

We’ll also see the urban light display and the longest section of the Berlin Wall outside of Berlin!
