prop 8 musical video

What do you think of this Prop 8 Musical Video? 

It’s a satire and I get it but it wasn’t that funny since well, they’re making fun of people like me.  I’m frustrated for many reasons including the lowblows at Christians.  I get the lowblows and potshots at Christians because we deserve it yada yada yada.  I understand.  But I get frustrated because you almost NEVER hear about the positive and good things that christians and churches do for their neighbors, cities, and such.  You only read and see the bad stuff that happens with churches, pastors, and christians. And stuff like Prop 8 just widens the chasm between people.  We stand behind issues without really knowing the people on the “other side.”

Well, I don’t really have the energy to share anything more.  In the next week or two, I’ll attempt to articulate why I hold to a traditional view of marriage but don’t support Prop 8.  That position sucks because it gets rocks thrown from both sides.  But let me stop here…I’ve received enough angry emails for the week that I’m considering removing the ‘contact’ section on my blog.

Here’s the video.  What do you think? Read the rest of this entry »

If you've ever prayed, donated, shared our stories, prayed, launched a campaign for @onedayswages - YOU made this possible. Our matching grant with @theexodusroad allowed us to support a portion of school fees for 11 young trafficking survivors in Thailand. For obvious reasons, we can't show their faces but we do what we do because we believe every person is created in the image of God. Honored to partner with The Exodus Road and others to play a small part in the restoration of these young kids. Wow. Seattle clouds. Backyard.

Stop for God's beauty, mystery, and glory. My prayer for my kids: Love God. Love people. And be there for one another for life. Most of us take water for granted.  It's as easy as turning on our faucet but approximately 748 million people in the world still lack access to clean water. This past December,  I had the privilege of visiting Myanmar and vividly remember walking the journey of what many have to do when they go to a nearby pond to get their water. As you can imagine, many get sick... We can't change the entire world but we can impact the world of some and most importantly, be changed ourselves. Partner with @onedayswages @worldconcern @miir to come alongside 7 villages in Myanmar that were devastated by Cyclone Nargis in 2008. - http://onedayswages.org Couple special days encouraging pastors and leaders from the beautiful state of Montana. Took some personal time for self-care to hike up this cliff. @SeattleQuest is on the move! Lots of mixed emotions but grateful for God's provision. We hope to move in to our new home this October.
