Hi Congregation, 

I pray this email finds you well. Please be sure to email me ( any photos and written memories/stories by Nov. 26 to include in the Service of Remembrance and Celebration. 

During my time away for continuing education this week with my leadership cohort, we reflected on Howard Thurman’s words of “listening for the genuine.” So often in our lives we hear competing voices outside of us calling for us to be someone other ourselves, but God’s voice is the genuine quiet voice within us which calls us back home into God’s presence. As we continue into our week, may we listen for the voice of the genuine and be moved to true authentic relationship with God. 

Grace and Peace,

Rev. Brittany

The San Diego School of Christian Studies invites you to join us as Encanto Elementary educators discuss challenges in teaching homeless children. Profound difficulties exist when educators struggle to teach kids lacking housing, food, learning materials, and sometimes parents.

Encanto Elementary services some of the neediest students and families in San Diego.
