Well, October 7th came and went and we have officially started services at MHC | Wedgwood. What a huge blessing and, at least to this humble writer, what a miracle! As of Saturday morning, the campus still looked like a construction zone: electricians were tringing wires through the auditorium, no chairs were in place, the kitchen was covered [...]
Big News! FakeTaxi XXX is coming to town near you, so watch out all of you sexy ladies.
The holidays are fast approaching. For many, this can be a difficult time of year. One specific way we can significantly help others is by providing gifts, service and prayers to help make the holidays a positive experience. MH is organizing its second annual Adopt-a-family program again to share with one another and minister to [...]
This summer for our sixth wedding anniversary, Bryan took me to dinner at Salty’s on Alki. If you’ve never been to Salty’s, it is an excellent seafood restaurant with gorgeous views across the bay to downtown Seattle - one of our favorite places to enjoy a long, slow dinner with a bottle of wine. During [...]
Like most of Seattle I live in a cubicle. Oh, sure I have a house where I sleep at night, but the majority of my conscious life is spent surrounded by four tiny drab grey walls. Which, in case I was tempted to forget, are awful handy reminders of the drab grey Seattle weather. Every [...]
According to Stasi Eldredge, the author of one of my favorite books, Captivating, one question women seek to answer over the course of their lives is “Am I lovely?” Women were created by Jesus as beautiful creatures made in his image, yet we spend so much time and energy wondering if we are lovely and [...]
If nothing else, watch the tackle by Sabara at 2:00 minutes remaining…
My son is on a soccer team. Now, for many of you, that may not be a big deal, but he is my oldest, and I sometimes sit back and wonder at the fact that he is even old enough to run around and pretend to absorb the concepts of an organized sport. He has [...]
written by Brian Geihsler So I was trolling the Mars Hill member forums and came across this article (posted by Joshua Block…thanks Josh!): It’s an interview A.J. Jacobs, a guy that decided to follow every rule in the Bible for one year. He walked around with a list of 700 rules and regulations while attempting his [...]
Last week, I came across a good explanation on how social networking “works” from a local Seattle native: Now, the hidden benefits that the Social Network revealed in the case of this video were such things as a new job or relationship, but these are by no means the limitation of this technology. Quite recently, [...]
Neurologist and author Oliver Sacks may be best known for writing the book Awakenings, which was turned into a film in the 80s, starring Robin Williams in what I believe was his first dramatic role. For those who have seen Wes Anderson’s delightful The Royal Tenenbaums, Bill Murray’s character, the bearded and bespectacled neurologist Raleigh [...]
The college ministry meets on Wednesday nights at 8:00 pm in the University District to equip and train college students to be missionaries on their campuses. The college ministry will be broad enough for any college student, but will be strategically geared and programmed to reach the University of Washington. Time: 8:00 PM every Wednesday Location: University Heights Community [...]
I was going to make this another “Closer than you think” entry, but calling a 1.5 hour drive from downtown Seattle “close” seemed a bit of a stretch so I’ll just call this a very biased, photo-heavy profile. On the northern edge of Whidbey Island, where State Route 20 makes its dramatic leap from Fidalgo Island [...]
After 11 Years, Two Constants: Jesus and Change By Pastor Jamie Munson One of over 220 people baptized at Alki Beach on September 14. Jesus continues to be exceedingly good to us as a church. John 1:16 says from His fullness we continue to receive grace upon grace, and as we celebrate our eleventh birthday this year is [...]
A Review of “Resident Evil: Extinction” (R) There is nothing new about the third installment in the Resident Evil series… though, for avid readers of Cinemagogue, you know that’s not necessarily harsh criticism. Still, while the film is enjoyable for fans of the genre, even I was surprised how unabashedly it borrowed from the themes and style [...]
