back in the saddle at quest

After a three month sabbatical, my family and I return to Quest Church this Sunday.  Hope to see all the Questers there and invite any Seattle blog stalkers, lurkers, visitors, and transplants to stop by for a visit.  Quest meets on Sundays at 9.15am, 11am, and 5pm and small community groups that meet throughout the week and throughout the city.

We had the great joy of planting Quest nearly eight years ago.   Every three years, the church grants me a sabbatical.  This was my 2nd sabbatical during my time at Quest.  I made one of the most idiotic and bonehead decisions three years ago during my first sabbatical.  The church asked me to take three months off but I said that I needed only two. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

Anyways, I’m back in the saddle beginning this Sunday at Quest.  I hope all the Questers enjoyed the teaching team this summer and their well mannered hand motions, and of course,  the shorter sermons.  That was my personal gift to you. 

I’ve been working out my hands and you won’t be disappointed with my new hand movements, gyrations, and motions.  Couple things to note: The next two weeks, I’ll be preaching about Personal Vision and Ministry Vision.  After that, we’ll be continuing our study through the book of Acts.  Currently, we’re on Chapter 14. 

Thanks for the opportunity for this extended sabbath-ical and the privilege of being a pastor amongst pastors at Quest.

Layover. San Francisco. Having grown up here, my heart still flutters. No other city like it. A quick, busy, & meaningful 26 hrs in Wash DC but managed to go for an hour walk for this view. One of the greatest monuments in the world. A true American hero. #AbrahamLincoln I may stand on different sides on several issues with this man but I'm committed to praying for my President.

Honored to be joining Christian pastors and leaders today for the White House Prayer Breakfast. The great wheel of Seattle. Cloudy on top. Sunny on the bottom. Such is life sometimes. Taking a walk in one of my fav Seattle spots before a busy month. Embracing the calm before the storm.
