q cafe revitalization and 10%

So, the Q Cafe is closed for about one month. Q Cafe is a non-profit/non-religious cafe birthed by Quest Church in our efforts to “be a good neighbor.”  We’ll be reopening on Monday, January 14, 2008.  During this short break, we’ll be taking some time to reorganize and revitalize the cafe.  We’re excited about our two new staff:  Anu Orebiyi will be the cafe director [anu(at)qcafe.org] and Bethany Peterson [bethany(at)qcafe.org] will be the live music/art coordinator.  Feel free to contact them if you’re interested in volunteering with either the cafe or live music.

One of the things that we’ll be changing is the website.  I’ll simply redo it via a wordpress blog for the time being until some web guru can take it to the next level.  But having said that, please enjoy the current Q Cafe Website before it gets taken down next week.  It’s really a beautiful website.  Many thanks to Hage Creative for his work with both the website and the photos.  Please do me a favor and visit his photography site…it’s not easy starting your own small business.

As we have this past year, we will be giving away 10% of our monthly cafe sales to an outside non-profit organization.  So, we need to finalize a list of 10-12 organizations to donate our proceeds.  Our hope is to give half to local non-profits and the other half to global organizations.  This year, we are asking patrons, supporters, and friends of Q Cafe to make suggestions who we should support.  Each month, we’ll also highlight those organizations. 

So, take a few moments and make your recommendations here.

    I actually think the current qcafe site is fantabulous!

    I was in the neighborhood on Thursday and hoping to a) hang out with friends from work who work down the hill from Q, and b) have a good cuppa joe and wifi, and c) celebrity spot the world-famous Eugene Cho, but… no luck; Q Cafe had just started renovation.

    (The website doesn’t say that the renovation has begun though ;-))

    I don’t know much about running a coffee house, but when I do visit one to get work done, I usually do it at night and when I was a student, I used to sleep late into the morning, classes all day and study at night. So my guess is, other than first thing in the morning, coffee houses get most of their businesses in the evening and at night. Also, I don’t think people like sharing tables. So maybe having more smaller tables just big enough for a laptop, a book and a cup of coffee will invite more patrons. Lastly, Sunday nights are school nights and are for cramming.

There's no such thing as a self-made person. Someone believed, encouraged, and invested in you. Be grateful and be that someone for others.

Taking a break from the sabbatical...to partner in ministry in Denver at Cherry Hills Church and at the CRU staff conference. It was such a gift to be able to encourage a handful of folks one-to-one, a small group of Asian-American leaders from EPIC, and the larger group of 5000 staff during one of the sessions.

I've been personally blessed, challenged, encouraged, exhorted, and convicted by so many who have poured into my life - friends, acquaintances, and even strangers - and I hope to do that for others as I seek to be faithful to Christ.

Thank you, Lord.
#cru17 Nothing grows by itself. If something matters to us, may we be intentional about growing it.

Invest. Pray. Plant. Water. Nurture. Repeat. God sees and knows us. In fact, God knows everything about us.

Not just the good we try so hard to project but even the mess we often seek to hide.

Let this soak in: Not only are we fully known but in Christ, we are fully pursued and loved.

This is grace.
Amazing grace. Hairstyles change. Sideburn fads come and go but may our commitment to love, honor, respect, and be on mission together for Christ never waver.

Thank you, Minhee. I love you so much even if you made fun of my hairstyle and sideburns. I missed you, Seattle. Grateful for a time to pray, rest, retreat, read, reflect, and sabbath. I've spent the last 12 days in the woods alone. Competely alone. It's been both haunting and refreshing. Haunting because of loneliness. Refreshing because through the silence, I am reminded - again - that I'm not alone. Emmanuel.

Also, bought myself a cheap kayak and loving the solitude time in nature. Also, the kayak is paying instant dividends in my bass fishing game. #sabbathrest #bassfishing #catchandrelease
