Go to the LTW blog here for quotes from Martin Luther, showing that "spritual disciplines" are not enough to bring true and everlasting peace.
The Venice Beach mission, Lighting The Way, is an oasis following the Bible’s teaching to go out into the market place bearing witness. It shows that impressive buildings and fine clothes are not needed, for His love is everywhere. It gives hope to the fainthearted... and guidance to people who have lost their way, and to those who have never encountered the true word of God, LTW gives the inspiration to go and find out more about Him. The mission helps us to see that God and His love are all around us.ValerieEngland
Dear Dwayna, My name is Sam Park, and I stumbled across your blog posts from March 2008 containing your thoughts about godly relationships and about being single. I browsed through just a tiny fraction of your many blog posts and also visited the LTW website, and I was just so encouraged by all that God is doing through you. I'm a senior at USC in Los Angeles, and I know how it feels to have a burden for the lost as I walk through Hollywood and Santa Monica and other parts of LA, or even just every day on campus as I go to my classes. So, to read about the ministries in West Hollywood and Venice fills me with so much joy. Sometimes I feel so small, thinking about how God could possibly reach out to these people, but when I read your story I am so encouraged. I appreciate very much the wisdom you share in your blog entry about how men should lead the relationship, particularly your comparison of men in California to those in New York. To hear it from a woman's perspective...it is something that I will take to heart as I look for a wife. It resonates with me since I've spent my whole life in Southern California and also because I'm Korean (many Asian men tend to be passive). I am learning more and more about what it means to be a man of God...Sam ParkLos Angeles, CA
