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 and through this blog, connecting with people both in Seattle and around the world, Christians and non-Christians, bloggers and non-bloggers, and people that share some of my convictions and others that don’t.

Now that I’ve kissed your arse and buttered you up, I am inviting my blog subscribers, readers, supporters, antagonists, surfers, and stalkers to show some love for this blog by making a small donation to help us fight global poverty through the newly formed secure link [via Paypal].

We’ve been only able to share our vision through this blog, Facebook, emails, and word of mouth, but nevertheless, we are excited for the growing momentum.  As of today, we’ve already raised $20,400 in donations and pledgesOur hope is to raise an additional $79,600 to total $200,000 [incl. our pledge] before we officially launch the poverty organization in January 2009 [tentatively].  Through the vision of the org, we know we can help make a  significant difference in the world.

If you enjoy this blog, would you support our vision by making a donation and sharing this vision with others?  If you’d rather mail in your donation, simply contact me at seattlejediknight@gmail.com

* If you want your donations to be tax-deductible, you’ll need to wait another 30-45 days before our official issuance.  If you mail in a check, we can also hold your check until then.

    awwwwww… and I was so looking for depraved asian cuties…..

    My personal vices aside, it has been a good read. Thought I should finally say something and stop lurking.

    PE, I am not sure if I can keep up! I checked my stats the other day, 8 visitors, 3 comments and one restraining order…

    loving this blog!

    another one I find great is pomomusings.com. It is this great combination of a young pastor’s experiences entering the ministry and his reflections on theology, technology, culture, the PCUSA, and life.

    Wow! I love what’s going on here Eugene.

  6. Yonas says:

    Out of curiousity, with that many comments to read, emails to answer, how do you prioritize which one to answer relatively quickly or will some of them remain unanswered?

    @yonas: i remember seeing your email last week and will try to respond at some point. i’m not able to respond to the majority of the emails that come to me via this blog.

    i read the majority of the comments unless they are novels. and most comments aren’t directed to me. they are part of the dialogue and i respond if i have something worth saying. if there is a comment directed towards me…i try.

  8. doesn’t this web site has other languages support??

    Hi there! Apparently I’m one of the people who have nothing better to do than read your blog — but consider that a compliment to you and not a criticism of myself. I love what you’re doing… with the small exception perhaps of the overuse of the word vomitaceous… but that’s probably just me.😉

One Day’s Wages

My Instagram

The family that karaokes together stays together. #ChoFamilyKPopFamily Family time in one of my favorite cities in the world - especially when the exchange rate is so favorable. Thank you, Vancouver, for being such a great refuge for our souls for the past 20 years. #QuestVancouver It's the day after...that day.
Be grateful. Again.
We woke up. We're alive.
Breathing. Dreaming.
Pursuing. Embodying. Loving.

It's never that perfect or easy but that we get to try to do these things is reason enough to be grateful to the One who gives us life.

Yes. Be grateful.
That you, Jesus.
#PreachingToMyself This is what real life looks like after a crazy couple weeks. Grateful for this woman. I love her. She's gonna scream at me for posting this pic. #ThoseSocksThough Grateful for the opportunity to encourage 2500 youth leaders & pastors at the @youthspecialties conference in Cincinnati, Ohio. Had prayed for wisdom to encourage leaders and courage to navigate a word for leaders post election about empathy and compassion for the unseen, marginalized, and those experiencing real fear.

Also, what a joy to have my church's youth pastor, @cobycagle, also here teaching. Some years ago, I was a youth pastor for several years in California, Korea, NY, and NJ. They were meaningful years but filled with challenges and loneliness. Sometimes, I felt unseen and insignificant - in comparison to "real" adult ministry. As a lead pastor now, I want to make sure I don't make those mistakes of overlooking our youth and children's ministry and their volunteers and staff. 
Pastor Coby, Pastor Katey, Pam, Jalle, and Jasmin: We see you. We appreciate you. We are grateful for your presence and leadership at Quest and beyond. Thank you and all of our amazing volunteers Wow. So proud of our 13 year-old son. When he began the trumpet in middle school, you could say it was a little painful. But this cat has got some groove. He's taught himself the piano, guitar, and really come along on the trumpet.

Parents: Fret not if you have no musical skills. I am living proof that musical genes or the lack thereof are not passed on. #AsianMilesDavis
