black eyed peas opens for u2

As most of you know, Minhee and I had the joy and gift of soaking in the U2 concert this past week.

After hearing all the hype and elevation of U2 and blah blah blah, I became a believer this past week. I’ve always enjoyed their music but I became a fan this week – even despite Bono blowing kisses at my wife. Jerk.

Anyways, the venue wasn’t as packed when the Black Eyed Peas opened for U2. It’s not fair to compare these two but the BEP just seemed off or that I’m not familiar with their music. In fact, I’ve only heard one of their songs prior to the show.  But then again, maybe it’s because they weren’t playing “their” show to their primary audience. What was fascinating was to be so close to stage and to able to see the precision of everything they were doing – or at least attempting to do.

Any Black Eyed Peas fans amongst my readers?

Here’s one of the videos I captured:

And while I was at it, I took what I think is a pretty kick arse photo of Fergie and the Black Eyed Peas. If she donates her one day’s wages, I’m willing to let her use it for her next album. Click on the image to see the high resolution picture.

And in case you missed it the first time, here’s the best photo I took from the U2 show: Edge in action. Click on the image to see the high res:

    Been a U2 fan for years myself. You got some crazy good seats.

    I would have taken a nap or read a book during the BEP songs.

    Hey Eugene – U2 was great, of course, but I was surprised by the Peas. My own thoughts are here if you’re interested.

    Nice! Just got tickets for June 18 here in the Bay. Great shot of my Guitar Hero, the Edge. I wanna see how big of a lens I can bring into the stadium.

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
