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.

One Day’s Wages

My Instagram

My Padawan. My son. My youngest. Encouraging him to not just hit the hoop courts but also the books. Minhee and I met these college boys when we first arrived in Seattle in 1997. They were part of our bible study that we led in our apartment for college students. They were also among the group of 7 people that helped start @seattlequest.

Much has changed in the world...but not their friendship and love. Thank you Jin and George. We love and honor you. These are crazy times in our country and larger world but nevertheless, we're going to keep pursuing the things that God has placed upon our hearts. We're pressing forward...doing our part to reflect mercy, compassion, and justice - locally and globally.

Wednesdays are my @onedayswages office day and I especially love the culmination of hard work for our interns, volunteers, 2 full-time staff, and board as we collaborate with our NGO partners. This week, we signed these checks as we granted out over $75,000 to provide better health care for mothers and their families in Mali and Nepal.

THANK YOU for making this possible Your classic play it cool because you're visiting your old stomping grounds at Princeton and pretend you're not cold but in actuality, you're freezing picture. 20 years, 2 weeks, and counting. What a journey with this woman. I love her...and I want to keep growing in love, honor, and respect. Great to catch up with @jlin7 in Brooklyn at the Nets game. Grateful for his partnership with @onedayswages to support our Girls' Empowerment Fund. The season hasn't been what he hoped for with major injuries...but we can't wait to see you back on the court soon and do what you do. Stay encouraged, brother. Thanks for your faithful witness for Christ.
