Bishop of Los Angeles ordains deacon in laundromat

Bishop of Los Angeles ordains deacon in laundromat

Bishop Jon Bruno, Bishop of the Diocese of Los Angeles, ordained Scott Claasen in a laundromat. Claasen was sponsored by Thad’s, an experimental community of the Episcopal Diocese. From their home page:

Thad’s is a movement of missionary people who’ve made a choice to leave the relative safety of the established church and take the love of Jesus “to the streets”. Our calling is to bring this transforming love into people’s lives in positive, transformative and practical ways. In church-speak, we’re a “mission station”, an experimental community of the Episcopal diocese of Los Angeles.

From the Facebook page of Stephen Bruce:

The Episcopal Church finds a fresh way to ordain it’s leaders, amidst the chaos and noise of a laundromat in Venice CA. J Jon Bruno, our bishop diocesan, ordains Scott Claassen of Thad’s, while Thad’s leaders and community, including Jimmy Bartz rally up for Scott.

I believe Bishop Bruno ordained Scott a deacon in the Church, as the audio in Mr. Bruce's video confirms.

Blessings!

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
