Why Advertisement? // After couple  years of mulling over it, I’ve decided to host advertisements on the blog. As my readers know, my wife and I have launched a non-profit organization called One Day’s Wages. In this pursuit, we’ve chosen to give our 2009 year’s wages and committed to donating an additional $32,000 over the next five years to honor our initial pledge of $100,000.  While not every penny of the advertisement funds will go towards our pledge, it is the driving motivation..

Blog History // I started blogging regularly in the summer of 2006 and am thankful for the blog’s wide, diverse, and growing “audience” and community. My blogging covers numerous topics including Christianity, Religion, Justice Issues, Non-Profits, Global Poverty, Technology, Social Media, Culture, Current News, Politics, Humor, and everything in between. I’m also a regular contributor to the Huffington Post and Sojourners blog.  Some of my blog entries have been expanded, published, or mentioned in several publications including the New York Times, Seattle Times, Seattle Post Intelligencer, and Huffington Post.  In addition, I’ve been written about or mentioned in KUOW/NPR, NBC News, CBS News, ABC World News, Puget Sound Business Journal, Christianity Today, and other local Seattle papers including the Pacific Northwest Magazine. You can learn more about my story here.

One Day’s Wages

My Instagram

Window seat. For the win. As leaders, we must not see ministry and family as competing commitments.  We must not sacrifice our marriage and kids for the sake of "ministry." How can we? Loving our families IS ministry & good leadership.

And on a side note, we took this goofy photo for Mother's Day last Sunday at @seattlequest. I was shocked! What in the world happened to our kids? Our 13 year old son blocked four of my shots on the basketball court yesterday. He's since been grounded... I fear that we ask God to move mountains, forgetting that God also wants to move us.

In fact, it's possible that we are that mountain. Time flies. The eldest is wrapping up her 1st year in college and the college tours have begun for the 2nd child. The youngest enters high school in the Fall. Can't say enough about how proud Minhee and I are of the kids - not just of their accomplishments but the people they are and are becoming.

But...man...we can't wait to party it up when we're emptynesters. Party at our house. It's going to be epic. Humbled. Grateful. Mindful of God's grace and faithfulness in my life. It's all grace... It's an unexpected honor to be invited back - even with some mini-drama - to @princetonseminary to receive the 2017 Distinguished Alumni Award - exactly 25 years after starting my journey there as a student in 1992. Wow.

Princeton isn't necessarily for everyone. And to say that I loved everything about my experience would be misleading but it was very formative. Ir challenged me to examine why I believed in what I believed. It reminded me that God could handle my questions. It prepared me for a post-Christian context where I am not entitled to be heard but I had to earn the right to be heard, and of course, it taught me that all is good with a Philly cheese steak at Hoagie Haven.

No one is an island to themselves and I am certainly an example of that. Many people - women and men, young and old, and of many backgrounds - prayed, encouraged, mentored, and loved me along the way. Grateful for my professors at seminary, my many classmates, and the numerous fellow staff and co-laborers I've had the privilege of serving Christ with past and present. And of course, I'm forever inspired by my parents, my children, and my wife, Minhee. Thank you for your faith, hope, and love...and oh, for your patience. Only your family will know and see both the best and worst of you. They've seen my worst...and keep on believing in me.

Thank you again, PTS and President Barnes, for this honor. Then, today, and tomorrow...by God's grace, just striving to be faithful to my Lord and Savior...to preach and live out the convictions of the whole Gospel. Amen. So humbled and grateful to be with @catalystleader in Cincinnati to encourage leaders from all around the country about the invitation to Uncommon Fellowship.

Preached from John 4. We can talk, preach, sing, philsophize, liturgize, and spit rhymes about Samaria...but we still have to talk through Samaria.
