"Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus." -- Romans 8:1
One year ago this past week, Dino Rizzo suddenly stepped down from his post as Senior Pastor of Healing Place Church amid a sea of controversy and rumors.
Immediate shockwaves were felt throughout 19202 Highland Road, shaking the very DNA of the church body and the surrounding community to the core.
Over the weeks and months that followed, a dejected congregation made its best effort to press on, seemingly without a step lost.
But beneath the surface, there was still an air of sorrow and grieving. Not audibly, but silently, seen in the eyes of smiling members who walked through the halls of the very building their former Pastors tirelessly championed, who were represented by wall murals still hanging hauntingly in the connect foyer.
