Q Cafe

Let’s first get the coffee espresso snob question out of the way:

What’s “your” espresso drink? Or are you a tea person?

In the face of some incredibly shocking statistics about extreme global poverty, it’s easy and understandable to feel paralyzed. I’ve often felt this way but instead of feeling the burden to change the world, just think about making an impact on one person, or one family, or one small village.

As some of you know, I also serve as the executive director of a non-profit community cafe called Q Cafe. I’m joined on the Advisory Board by Read the rest of this entry »

one of my favorites at qcafe tonight


if you’re in the city, one of my favorites acts to play at Q Cafe is coming back from california to play the venue. come and check out tyrone wells at 8pm tonight.  it sucks that i won’t be able to make it out as i’m doing some stuff which i’ll post about in a day or so.  couple musicians are opening up for the main act. i believe the cover is $7. good or bad – tyrone wells will make it big in the next three years.

seattle, music, and qcafe

its really true.  everyone in seattle is a musician. everyone’s in a band.  everyone’s in with eddie vedder.  everyone’s in with dave matthews.  and if you’re not in a band, you just lie and say you’re still in a band.  and if you want to skirt around the idea, you just say, ‘i’m an artist.‘  but let me just say, i love seattle because it has so many musicians, artists, and creative folks. this is one of the highlights we have had in planting quest church five years ago: we have met such a diverse community of people – especially entrepreneurs, social workers, globally minded folks, artists, and musicians.

Do small things with great love. Think simple. Not spectacular. C'mon! We still got it.

#19YearsAndGoingStrong Grateful for the life and leadership of Dr. John M. Perkins. There are alot of sprinters in our culture but make sure to also look for those who are persevering in the marathon of justice and reconciliation. When I think of him and others I consider mentors in my life, they're not necessarily flashy or fancy. Rather, I'm reminded that a life faithfully and honestly lived through life's trials and messiness is one's greatest sermon. The best thing a father can do for their kids...is to care well for their mother. It took me awhile to learn this and I'm still learning this. As a leader, I refuse to sacrifice my marriage and kids for the sake of ministry. How can I? Loving my family IS ministry and leadership.

I acknowledge that I'm so privileged with platform, resources, and opportunities - including the opportunity to travel and take vacations like this trip last month. Its not lost on me. I'm so grateful. I want to steward that privilege well - not just for personal or family enjoyment - but also for the sake of others and the building of the Kingdom of God. 
As I pour into others, I'm also learning how important it is to care for oneself; To care for your spouse; To care for your family; To be about the marathon. Preservation not for the sake of self-preservation but for the sake of discipleship and faithfulness.

I used to feel guilty about Sabbath-ing, vacations for my family, being in the outdoors, fishing, and self-care but it's too important  As a lifelong recovering workaholic, I don't want to burn out and I don't want this for others. Flying in and out of Seattle never gets old. One of the most mesmerizing topographies in the country. #windowseat Thank you, Chicago. Put in 10,000 steps. Still one of the best cities to walk.
