• Ninja’s Teeth and the Relentless Love of God.

    When I was just out of college I was pretty hell-bent on changing the world. Hopefully I still am but back then I was far less patient to see the results of my efforts. I had moved to the heart of Los Angeles to study a year of urban studies as well as fulfill an internship at the First Church of The Nazarene on Third & Vermont. I was ready for adventure, but not for the hard work of everyday care and concern for other who sometimes annoyed me. ┬áNevertheless something clicked at the county hospital one day when I tried to help “Ninja” get his teeth fixed.
