Ancient male initiation rites taught young men the important lesson that they are not in control, which is really a lesson on how to love like God loves.
Rev. David Ivie, Pastor
The October 1989 earthquake in San Francisco shook people to the core. Like all natural disasters, it showed people, however briefly, that we are not in control. As much as we forget and fight against it, we can't even trust the ground under our feet. But strangely it also reorients us to trust -- be one with God, while control separates us.
