I was in Washington D.C. today for the first time since a childhood visit back in the seventies. But it wasn’t remotely like the typical D.C. tour. It was actually just a stop over at the Dulles airport. Airlines have a way of redefining the concept of “straight lines”.

The past couple of days have gone by like a Colorado afternoon thunder shower. Fast, confused, scary at times, and just a bit too crazy for my taste. Problem is, the dark clouds haven’t quite passed yet.

I had a blast playing the role of camp missionary, staff assistant, and whatever else they needed. Eli was a camper all week, in the adventure camp and seemed to . . . → Read More: Summer Camp

Maybe this is stereotypical, but my image of Seattle is of a fairly forward thinking US city that has been quick to embrace earth friendly concepts like . . . → Read More: Embracing Public Transportation
I flew to Chicago on January 31st and drove a rented car down to Lafayette, IN. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the Evangelical Covenant Church where I preached on Sunday morning and met with church members over lunch. This church supported my parents for many years before transferring their support to us in 1994. . . . → Read More: A Really Cold Week
We got off to an early morning start from Colorado Springs on December 20th and by night fall we were at the Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona. We spent the night in the park and got up early the next morning for some sunrise photo opps. After a nice breakfast back at the lodge . . . → Read More: Holidays in California
Here is a link to my online gallery of photos from my recent roadtrip to OH, PA and NY.
Well, it’s time for an update. I’ve spent a wonderful week in OH, PA and NY. Thanks to some superb ground work, I was able to visit eight churches in eight days!
