UCC church, pastor minister at wildfires, mudslides "ground zero"

As rescuers in California urgently search for more missing people in the deadly mudslides that devastated the Montecito community, a United Church of Christ minister is pastoring to the stricken and the injured. The Rev. Kris Bergstrom, pastor of Church of the Foothills in Ventura, Calif., also serves as a part-time chaplain at the local hospital in Montecito. She also is the former Montecito village school principal, so has close ties with many families. Read the UCC News story.
