brit hume on tiger woods: what’s the big deal?

Maybe you’ve seen it or not but if you haven’t, I invite you to watch the video (below) and contribute to our dialogue. My simple question:

What’s the big deal? Did you or do you have any problems with what he shared? Did he violate the tenets of “good journalism?”

For those that don’t knowBrit Hume is a TV commentator and journalist. He now mostly works at FOX News as a senior political analyst. Truth be told, he’s one of the few I can listen to on FOX News when I’m watching it mainly because he’s not screaming. MSNBC isn’t much better. But I digress…

But here’s the context and the situation (from wikipedia):

On January 3, 2010, as a guest on Fox News Sunday Hume offered advice to Tiger Woods that he might turn his faith to Christianity. Hume’s comments came in the wake Read the rest of this entry »

tiger wood: the rise, fall, and…

It began with an accidental car accident (my words). Seemed innocent enough. And eventually, it became ridunkulously stupid all the media coverage an accidental car accident was receiving. Time to move on.

And then the drama began to unfold.

And while I haven’t been following the story, it’s hard NOT to hear something about the story. I don’t know if you’ve been tracking it. I’ve avoided blogging about it until tonight when I read about his decision to indefinitely take a break from professional golf.

Just wanted to share some quick reflections and ask you a simple question for your feedback: Read the rest of this entry »

Quintessential Seattle summer night... Exciting news! While I can't share the specifics yet, Jeremy Lin (@jlin7) and @onedayswages will be partnering together. 
About a year ago, Jeremy reached out after he read my book, Overrated. We talked about, faith, gospel, justice, tenacity, influence, breaking ankles with our crossovers. Eventually, one thing led to another and then dreaming about collaboration for the greater Kingdom.

I appreciate his heart, his humility, and his commitment to use his platform for Christ. And of course, I'm thrilled for his new chapter as the starting point guard for the Brooklyn Nets. He's gonna have a great season. #jeremylin #linsanity #onedayswages #nba #brooklynnets // photo credit: @lovitylove I was trying to have a tender father-daughter grown up talk moment before she heads off to college next month. As in like, "Hey, you're a grown up now, floss regularly,  know who you are, what you're about, study hard, don't succumb to peer pressure, your relationship with God is the first priority, don't take too many selfies, know the difference between "their', 'there', and they're', watch out for boys and their cooties"... but...I'm having a difficult...time...focusing. This fall, I'm marking 25 years of serving as a pastor in the local church. Served in Sacramento, CA, Flushing NY, Princeton, NJ, Seoul, Korea, Lynnwood, WA, and now about 17 years in the city of Seattle. Minhee has been on this journey with me for almost 20 years. 
So many ups and downs. Lots of tears and restless nights. Lots of personal doubts and insecurities. But ultimately, we've experienced that God's grace is sufficient in our weakness. 
And along the way, so many incredible and indelible memories. 
Especially grateful to be invited into the joyous celebrations and also the deep moments of vulnerability and pain. Through it all, what an amazing joy and privilege to bear witness to the grace and love of Christ. Palm trees make everything feel better. Thank you to the kind folks of Mount Hermon for hosting us. Thank you, Santa Cruz for being Santa Cruz. We all have fears because we're human. Name your fears. Have courage. Work through them.

Super proud of the kids for working through their fear of heights and making it through the ropes course challenge and the ziplines.
