Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles & Cynthia Burnett

Today I visited a couple of very good externally focused churches--Calvary Community Church in Westlake Village near Thousand Oaks and Water of Life Community Church in Fontana. Unfortunately there was a whole lot of distance between them. Fortunately Pasadena was right on the way. Now one of the all time restaurants in Southern California is Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles. Christian Washington introduced me to Roscoe's a few years ago and it's a must eat at when you are in Pasadena--Right on Lake Avenue, five or six blocks north of Lake Avenue Church. I'll attach a couple of pics. It's probably the best fried chicken you'll ever eat.

After meeting with Pastor Danny Carrol of Water of Life Community Church in Fontana (founding pastor, great friends with Dr. Bill Bright...incredibly externally focused ) I met Liz at Macaroni Grill to have dinner with Cynthia Burnett and her daughter Elizabeth. Cynthia, Liz and I worked together for several years with Campus Crusade and a dozen years ago she left staff, got her masters and now teaches and counsels at Mount SAC in career counseling. Ten years ago she flew to China and adopted her beautiful daughter who is now ten! It was such a treat to see her and catch up with her. Really one of our all-time favorite people. Attached is a picture that rivals my waffles of Cynthia and her daughter Elizabeth.
