Celebrating the multicultural diversity of spiritual life in Los Angeles, "Finding God in the City of Angels" explores the varied ways in which different communities engage their sacred texts or "scriptures,” whether in worship, prayer, song, dance, performance, art, storytelling or ministry. From a small Skid Row church in downtown Los Angeles to a massive Chinese Buddhist temple in Hacienda Heights; from an Orthodox Jewish synagogue on Venice beach to an alternative religious group that meets in a hair salon in Inglewood; from the first Indigenous Peoples of Los Angeles to the Goddess Temple of Orange County, "Finding God in the City of Angels," explores the diverse ways in which different communities live their "scriptures."
