blog “open mic”

This is the 2nd blog “open mic” I’ve hosted here.  I hosted the first “open mic” several months ago after randomly feeling inspired to do so and got some interesting stuff.

What is a blog open mic? It’s simply a digital version of an OPEN MIC. The pic above is from an Open Mic we host at Q Cafe on Tuesday nights from 6-9pm for those that want to actually get on a small stage and get your talent on. In the comment section on this post, you can share anything – [well, almost anything]:

why blogging matters

I want to encourage YOU to start blogging…especially those who email me regularly about what I should blog about.  :)  My response:  “Hey, you blog about it!”

And not because there’s money, power, and fame in blogging but because it gives you a chance to express your voice and engage in an ever interconnected world.  Check out this video.  Granted, it sounds like an overdone commerical for WordPress but is also a simple reminder of the influence of blogging.

As for why I blog, I’ve shared it on couple occassions before but I’ll share it again.  Is blogging time consuming?  Read the rest of this entry »

496 posts, 7204 comments, 33604 spam, and $20,400 raised

I’ve been encouraged by the number of folks that read my blog.  I had no idea that people had nothing better to do.  According to the blog’s statistics since its inception in 2006, I’ve written 496 posts, received about 517,300+ hits and 7219 comments, and 33,746 pieces of spam.  The blog averages about 900 visitors each day although a good handful are from weirdos that google “beautiful depraved Asian cuties.”  What a huge disappointment it must be for them to stumble onto a pastor’s blog!

I want to thank you for reading my blog and I do hope that the blog is a source of encouragement to you in some way or another.  I have certainly enjoyed the opportunity to share my vomitaceous thoughts Read the rest of this entry »

2007 blog review

This past year was my first full year blogging.  After sporadic and pathetic attempts in years past, I took the plunge midway through 2006.  It began with a post or two per week and now, I try to post daily Monday-Friday [like a good blog disciple of Scot McKnight].  In fact, I’ve carved out 11.30-Midnight each night for blogging unless circumstances come up.   While the blog is accomplishing the below mentioned “purposes,” it has also taken a life of its own…I appreciate those who’ve chosen to journey with me through this venue.  If you’re relatively new to the blog, you can subscribe to it here.

In retrospect, I wished I chose to blog faithfully much earlier.  It would have been valuable – even now – for myself [and perhaps for others] to see some of my earlier vomitaceous thoughts. 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.
