Tamarind Avenue Church
Hosts Community Town Hall
When numerous potholes in town started becoming a problem for drivers, the Tamarind Avenue church decided to get involved by hosting the community town hall held by Congresswoman Nanette Barragan. Approximately 1,000 people from the Compton, Calif. community came to the meeting. When a growing number of individuals started expressing
their anger, the church pastor,
Lanston Sylvester, took quick action. He walked to the podium
and addressed the audience, saying, “We understand disappointment, we understand disagreement, we opened up our church because we care about our community.” This pastor’s tact and care diffused the situation—and provided an example to many of what it means to live God’s love.
