it’s not just a unicorn. it’s a movement.

Any unicorn lovers amongst my blog readers?

Several weeks ago, we launched our holiday campaign called One Less Gift. It’s a simple invitation – that in lieu of some of the random (or mindful) gifts we give to our friends and family- to instead, make a donation in their name and send them one of our comical e-cards and make a donation in their name.

One of the e-cards pokes fun at the unicorn.

I had no idea how popular the unicorns were in our larger pop culture. Advocates, unicorn lovers, groupies, and believers of the unicorn came out of nowhere to defend the magic of the unicorn.

Want evidence?

Unicorn advocates on Twitter:

A real unicorn coffee cup.

I also received this unicorn coffee mug as a gift (with clean water in it). The amazing thing: She actually owned and used it regularly. It’s a beauty and now become my daily coffee mug.

And how about this beauty?

My friends over at MiiR Bottles made this exclusive Unicorn 800ml water bottle. It’s a one of a kind collector’s item and I’m hoping some Unicorn Lover that’s reading this blog might be willing to pay $500 for it.

Isn’t it beautiful? Any takers?

Truly amazing.

It’s not just a unicorn. It’s a movement.

Okay, that’s another shot at the “It’s not just a tree. It’s a movement” nonsense. But seriously, if you’re looking to send someone a fun and meaningful gift during the last few hours before Christmas, consider sending them an E-Card that fights poverty. Here’s how it works:

  • Visit the site and pick one of the One Less Gift e-cards
  • You choose an amount you want to donate in someone’s name.
  • Insert their name, email and send them an e-card.

100% of your donation (minus credit card fees) go to empower those living in extreme poverty.

    Gave this to all the volunteers in our youth group. First time I’ve given a gift like this, and it was a big hit! God bless.

Still my baby son! This was 10 years ago. I dominated my son in wrestling and I know what you're thinking, "How could you employ a rear chokehold armbar kimura on your own son?" Hey, a competition is a competition.

I love you, son. The world is broken. This ia a sad truth. But the story of redemption is not yet finished. God is not yet done. This is the ultimate Truth. Have hope. Press on. Ten years ago, I witnessed one of those "God things" when a church called Interbay Covenant Church gave itself, its legacy, and a building property worth $7 million dollars to @seattlequest. We were then only 5 years old.

Quest is an urban, multiethnic churchplant that started in 2001. We rented the facilities at Interbay Covenant Church - a predominantly older, mostly Anglo congregation with a rich 65 years history. After some time, Pastor Ray Bartel (senior pastor, Interbay) approached me with a "crazy idea" of Interbay "dying to itself and giving itself to Quest" for the sake of the greater Kingdom and the coming generations.

This eventually led to three years of many conversations and prayers. On June 3, 2007, the two churches officially came together to become one church. In giving itself, Interbay also shared their leadership, legacy, and stories. They also gave all of their assets without any strings and without any debt.

Their radical generosity and courage is what enabled Quest to grow - not just numerically - but deeper in discipleship, and deeper in missions - to the city of Seattle and beyond. On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of this merger, we created a short film (check my FB page to see the video) to tell the story - so that our church and the next generations may never forget and that the larger Church may be stirred and encouraged by a greater Kingdom vision.

Thank you, Interbay! The NBA season is over but the hustle and grind continues for my daughter. We argue sometimes but I love training my daughter. She's working hard for her senior year next year. Starting point guard. She's improved a lot. She's one of the quickest players on the floor and has a great midrange jumper. But trying to get her to keep working on her handles, using her off hand and shoulder to protect the ball,  staying and dribbling the ball lower to the ground, and playing aggressive and downhill while remaining in control. That's what we're working on this week. #hoopdreams #ChovarBall Reunited with my favorite elephant, Buh'loom. We bonded earlier this year and I'd like to think that she recognized my voice. Also, appreciate learning about ethical and sustainable eco-tourism.
