As many of you grew up from childhood we were always lured with the happenings of Easter by the presence of the Easter bunny and his goodies. I can recall looking forward to checking the front porch on Easter Sunday morning to see what ole Peter Cottontail had brought be in his basket of goodies.
Maybe it was a package or two of those yellow Peeps. Maybe there was some sort of small toy as well. Perhaps there would be some plat is Easter eggs with assorted chocolates or candies. Either way, it was a fun time for a child to look forward to after a long winter’s lull.
My favorite thing in my Easter basket was never that green grassy stuff. In fact, I hates everything about it. The plasticky feel, the smell and the texture wasn’t something I enjoyed. So I pretty much moved it aside and got down to the nitty grit of what’s in my basket.

We are a group of Christian people who accept all others for who they. An all inclusive group of people who have our own histories of sin and mistakes. None of us are perfect and we don’t expect or demand perfection from any of our members, past or present. A Place to Call Home is Temecula’s new age way of thinking and worshipping. We strive to be more Christ like by simply loving one another.
We are not here to pass judgment, for it is not us who is the final judge of our lives. As the Bible states, “Judge not lest ye be judged yourself”. This place is simply a place for all others who have felt shunned by society, who have been ridiculed by so called friends and family. For those who feel they do not have a place in this world we want to be a place you can call home.
Where you are welcomed with open arms and warm hearts. A place where you can truly be you. A Place to Call Home isn’t a place where you will feel ashamed of yourself when you walk in the door. It isn’t a place where you will be required to hide your true self and to pretend to be someone or something you are not.
Black, white, yellow, Puerto Rican or Haitian we are all welcoming to everyone of this wonderful nation. Bi, gay straight, transgendered and everything in between or outside of the sop called lines that society has placed upon us are welcome here. God made us all in his own image and we truly believe that God doesn’t make mistakes. He has a purpose and plan for each and everyone of our lives. Continue reading “Your Place to Call Home” »
