7-alarm fire at The Simple Way Community

At around 3 am this morning there was a fire that destroyed The Simple Way Community Center and surrounding homes. They are a community of faith committed to living out God's justice and mercy among the poor. Pleas pray for them in this difficult time.

6/20/07 12:30PM

This morning, a 7-alarm fire consumed an abandoned warehouse in our Kensington neighborhood in Philadelphia. The Simple Way Community Center at 3200 Potter Street was destroyed as well as at least eight of our neighbors’ homes. Over 100 people were evacuated from their homes, and 400 families are currently without power. Despite this developing tragedy, we are incredibly thankful to share that all of our community members and every one of our neighbors is safely out of harm’s way.

Brian Corstange - The Wedding Song

An amazing song by Brian Corstange... the best unknown singer songwriter ever. This is a project called Kitchen Music that some friends have started. Thanks Tommy and Lauren for keeping the good music flowing.

Fisheye fascination!

I now have an odd fascination with fisheye lenses... After spending the weekend with Colorado Calvin, and seeing his great pics that his cool Fisheye camera takes, I had to do some experimenting on my own. I found some instructions on how to make a DIY fisheye lens for my digital camera and here is a collage of some of the photos that resulted.

Nepal or Bust!

I figured I'd better post on here....

It has been a while.

To fill you in on what has been happening lately...

On the 18th of April I traveled to Omaha Ne to attend the Word Made Flesh board meeting and interview for a staff position in Kathmandu Nepal. We all had a great time! It was really cool connecting with friends old and new. The weekend was full of meetings and deep conversation about exciting future plans. Right now my target date to leave for Nepal in mid November, and I will be there for at least 3 years. There is a lot to do between now and then. From fund raising to reading required books to just getting my life in order, it will be an interesting challenge. The bottom line is that it is all in God's hands. This is his deal. I just need to be faithful and take each step as it comes.

6 months and counting...
