A Tour of Roses is a ministry of reaching out into broken communities with the tenderness and mercy of God. It is a tangible expression of the extravagant love and kindness of the Creator for all who are fractured—in small or large ways—by our own sin, and the sin of others. Through roses, song and story, worship and prayer, it is the hope of Sally and her team that they may be vessels of God’s love and healing for all who struggle with the wounds of the past.
A Tour of Roses – Future Projects
A Tour of Roses Paradise, CA
February 2-9, 2020
The remnants of a once-beautiful, thriving community now reduced to ashes
We are planning a mini-ATOR project that will include Something Beautiful for Someone Beautiful Women’s Conference. Where, you might ask…? We are planning to bring the project this time to Paradise, CA. Paradise is where the terrible Camp Fire happened almost a year ago, and 80+ people lost their lives and 90 % of the town was consumed in flames, including the home of my good friends, Heather and Sam Walker. The town went from being populated by 20,000 + people to 2,000 + people.
You may ask then, why Paradise? Because I believe God wants to plant hope and beauty in the midst of those ashes and ruins. He wants to remind the people in that area that He is still God and the One who whispers Spring even in the snow and ice of Winter, Who calls the things that are not as though they are.
So—during November I will be accepting applications for this project. And starting after Thanksgiving we will begin having meetings together for those who feel God is calling them to participate and whose applications are accepted.
