Mosaic at the Mayan
My sister Jessica's seven week stay in LA is sadly coming to a close, and we go to hang out one last time before she goes to SF tomorrow. We went to Mosaic church at a nightclub called the Mayan in downtown LA. It is quite a experience, with a really excellent band, a smoke machine, cool multimedia art, a light show, and the whole building is decorated to look like a Mayan temple. And I'm a pretty big fan of the founder of Mosaic, Erwin McMahanus. He's got a great sense of humor, and a lot of wisdom too. So it was quite nice going there tonight.
The message was all about loving other people, and how it's actually easy to love God, but loving other people is where things get really difficult. And yet, proof of God's love on earth comes from people being able to love one another... it was inspiring.
After the church meeting was over, we were going to the Getty Center but it was closed. So instead we ate at In-N-Out burger and got a delicious ice cream sandwich at Diddy Reise in Westwood. All in all, it was a nice ending to a great time with Jessica being in town. It was a real blessing that she got to be here for so long, and a blast hanging out with her so much.

What a blessing you both were able to spend so much time together while you are away from the rest of your family!

In N Out Burger! I was in total withdrawal out here in Philly until somebody opened Five Guys. One of the few things worth missing from L.A., as far as I'm concerned. There are a million great churches, but very few good pizza places. Almost impossible to get a decent cheese steak.
