We Are Commanded To Love


Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. (1John 4:7-8)

Rock Mass 03-02-2019

Rock Mass on the first Sunday of the month.


Rock Mass for Sunday March 2, 2019














If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. (Romans 12:18)

Peace, Love and Light!

The inspiration for creating "Rock Mass" came from the Rock Mass at All Saints Episcopal Church in Pasadena California back in the early 1970’s. On the first Friday night of each month All Saints held a Rock Mass which was a mix of traditional Episcopalian Mass and rock concert. A live band would play popular rock music which couldn’t necessarily be called “Christian” but contained spiritual phrases and references to God or Jesus. During the 1960’s and early 1970’s there was an explosion of these songs coming out of the "secular" music industry way before there was “Contemporary Christian Music”, in a way, it could be called "The Gospel According To Billboard's Top 10".

1969 - Fifty Years On


Fifty years ago 1969 was a year filled with historic, horrific, inspiring, and earth shattering events, events that had a profound lasting effect on me. Some of the events of 1969 that I remember most were the first manned moon landing, the Woodstock Music and Art Fair, the Jesus People Movement, the 3-million gallon Santa Barbara Oil Spill, the Vietnam War, John & Yoko's Bed-in and them singing Give Peace a Chance.

Here are some news photos of those benchmark events fifty years ago:

The events of 1969 were part of an entire generation’s coming of age, even though I was only thirteen at that time it left an indelible mark on me shaping much of who I am today and how I have lived my life.

The Lord said to his people, “Stand at the crossroads and look. Ask for the ancient paths and where the best road is. Walk in it, and you will live in peace.”
(Jeremiah 6:1)

How Russians & Americans See Each Other


"We need to study the culture of a different country. And not simply believe something because you see it on television. You have to dig into it yourself to check the information. And then you will understand that all around the world people are similar." ~A Russian in a Moscow cafe
