Life has been moving fast for the Post family over the past four months. It’s been quite a while since the last time I’ve posted a legitimate blog entry. Typically, I like to post some of my theological reflections. But I feel it might be a good time to give an update on our family’s transition from LA to L.A.(or Crowley to Cali).
First, our new church. I am the new Lead Pastor of Village Church in Burbank. Village was planted in 1947 by an Assemblies of God minister, Phil Gibson, as a non-denominational, missions-minded community. Two years later, the church launched Village Christian School. The church has such a rich history in Los Angeles.
In 1933, Adolf Hitler and his Nazi Party came to power in Germany and began to systematically transform Germany into a totalitarian state. They eliminated all opposition, and all power was consolidated within the Führer himself. From there, he proceeded to implement his nationalistic, militaristic, and racist policies. As part of his agenda, Hitler saw the local churches of Germany as an important ideological battleground. In order to increase and galvanize his influence, he sought to unify all of the Protestant churches of Germany into one state-sponsored, pro-Nazi Church. And thousands of churches and pastors caved in under the pressure.
