That’s a Wrap: VBS2020

Sometime in Lent, several of us started to wonder how Vacation Bible School could look this summer then began to dream big.  Beginning to glimpse Jesus’ vision of our mission field in The Great Commission, we realized that we were free of geographic boundaries and that our traditional and separate week-long Vacation Bible Schools could be so much more.  By April, Group Publishing released their content for online offerings and we were off to the races.  Quickly adapting a five-day curriculum into a five-week video series, this ambitious project would need dozens of volunteers from as many congregations to work and it has!  Thanks to those volunteers and our streaming partners, thousands of eyes have seen and thousands of ears have heard the Good News of Jesus.

 

Thanks to our bold, creative, eager, honest, compassionate volunteers who, on screen and off, created something special in a time when we sorely needed it.

 

Thank you Dawn, Kari, Chet, Lucas, Jocelynn, Gwynn, Trevor, Maya, Nick, Izzy, Mary, Sarah, Mark, Neomi, Lynn, Ari, Erin, Leslie, Gabby, Chris, Liz, Deana, Ken, David, Melodie for creating our Everyday Science segments, students from our diocesan youth Dismantling Racism course, Jennie for converting VBS in-a-can into VBS online, the incomparable Charlette Preslar, and, especially, you for joining us on this adventure by tuning in each week!

 

We have exciting plans for the fall so, until then, rest well, see beauty, be God’s incarnate love to all, then keep your eyes glued to diocesan channels for more information as the season unfolds.

 

Sunday at 3pm, join us for one last trip down the Rocky Railway at edsd.org/vbs

It is no secret that we are becoming more desensitized to advertising. These days we automatically tune out most of the ads we see–digital ads get lost in social media noise, and flyers get tossed into the junk mail pile or the trash. So, how do we tell people about the fantastic events at our […]

A Deacon’s Reflection: Semper Gumbi
November 22, 2022

Most everyone in the San Diego area knows the Marine Corps motto: “Semper Fi,” always faithful. Some know the Coast Guard motto: “Semper Paratus,” always prepared. From my experience as a deacon, I suggest that the motto for the diaconate should be: “Semper Gumbi,” always flexible. What I thought I would do as a deacon […]

Ripples: Piety, Study, and Action in 30 Minutes a Day

Though the subtitle is tongue in cheek, one of the concepts we learn in Cursillo to help maintain our spiritual life in Christ is summed up in those three words: Piety, Study, and Action. The simple activity of reading the Bible daily to another person has strengthened me in those three disciplines. It has impacted […]
