Hope at the Beach – September Newsletter


After Jesus had spoken these words, he looked up to heaven and said, “…22 The glory that you have given me I have given them, so that they may be one, as we are one, 23 I in them and you in me, that they may become completely one, so that the world may know that you have sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.”                             John 17:22-24 (NRSV)

Palm Sunday

It isn’t very often that we get to share this great gospel internationally but a few months ago a reporter and photojournalist from France contacted us (below) and asked to interview and shoot some photos of our worship service.

“We’re a team of French freelance journalists, I Eugénie Baccot is a photographer represented by both Divergence and Parallelo Zero agencies in France and Italie (www.eugeniebaccot.com)  and Anne-Laure Pineau am a writer working with the collective Youpress (www.youpress.fr) and. We publish articles about social and human issues in french and international medias (Paris Match, Elle, Le Parisien…) We’re going to publish a photo and text story for a great magazine “Le Monde des Religions” about the christian surfeur community on California.”

Recently we received this PDF article from Eugénie, of her completed piece and had to share!

Unfortunately, we do not speak French, so we are hoping that someone on our mailing list can translate and share with us all what was said concerning Hope at the Beach and especially the Good News!

Nice pictures though, aren’t they – they speak a thousand words.

God’s peace,

Pastor Chuck and Lin
