    worship setlist @ Q – 2008.08.24… 

    was an interesting sunday… had read about the unfortunate news surrounding mike gugliemucci and i remember being saddened to hear the news.
    the devastation he, his parents, his wife + family must feel.
    p.e. has a great entry about this on his blog and the need to allow others into our lives so there is accountability and transparency in our lives. the temptation for us as believers in this world is immense… and if you’re in a position of authority/visibility in the ministry, all the more realization that our actions have further repercussions than we might acknowledge.
    Lord, may my heart remain honest and painfully bear to You and those who love and care for me… that i will be acknowledge my brokenness, sincere in my repentance and confession, and fierce in adoration of You!

    [UPDATE: 08.26.2008] pastor harvey drake’s son wounded in drive-by shooting… please lift up your prayers… 

    the latest from the drake family [as of today, 08.27.2008]:
    Thank you for lifting us up in prayer.  Terren is a living miracle and is
    recovering well.  He’s been out of ICU for several days now and all of
    this tubes have been removed.  In fact, he may be going home today or
    tomorrow.  It will be 6-8 weeks before he can consider returning to work.

    All in all were are extremely grateful.

    praise the LORD!


    so not cool…  😦
    from the ecc’s website:

    SEATTLE, WA (August 20, 2008) – Terren Drake, the youngest son of Evangelical Covenant Church pastor Harvey Drake and his wife, Andrea, is recuperating from two gunshot wounds he suffered in a drive-by shooting early Sunday morning.

    Terren, 26, was taken out of the intensive care unit at Harborview Medical Center and moved to a main floor on Tuesday night. “It’s very good news,” Harvey said. “He’s recovering well.”

    Terren was the passenger in a vehicle that had stopped at a traffic light near Qwest Field around 2:15 a.m. when the shooting occurred. “There had been no words, nothing,” Harvey said. Neither Terren nor the driver knew the assailants.

    The driver noticed that the rear window of the other vehicle was down but thought nothing of it because it was a warm evening, Harvey said. “Then all of a sudden bullets were flying.”

    The first bullet struck Terren in the hand and a cell phone he was using, causing damage to his jaw and chin. He moved to protect the driver, and the second bullet hit him in the back. A third bullet grazed the driver, who sped to the hospital, Harvey said.

    Terren underwent eight hours of surgery to repair his jaw and is expected to undergo another surgery within the next two weeks to replace a bone in his chin, Harvey said.

    The second bullet that struck Terren in the back hit a rib before ricocheting into his shoulder, Harvey said. The rib punctured Terren’s lung.

    The wounds could have been much worse, Harvey said. Doctors told him that Terren also could have suffered much more serious internal damage if the second bullet had not ricocheted off the rib the way it did.

    Harvey is pastor of Emerald City Bible Fellowship, an ECC congregation.

    Y.A.W.N.s v. yuppies, what’s in your wallet?… 

    saw this interesting article on msn:
    Rik Wehbring, a dot-com millionaire who made his wealth working for several Internet startups… lives on $50,000 a year.  And he isn’t alone. In this era of conspicuous consumption, he and other people like him are saying, “No, thanks,” opting instead for a more reasonable lifestyle. The Sunday Telegraph of London has given this demographic a name: YAWNs, for Y.oung A.nd W.ealthy but N.ormal.

    How refreshing! Twenty- and 30-something adults who don’t believe that just because they’ve got it they’ve gotta flaunt it. Think of them as the anti-Paris Hilton.  These folks prefer to live quietly outside the spotlight (Wehbring declined my request for an interview).

    They use their money for good causes instead of for their own glory.
    Many are also environmentally conscious.
    They eschew excess and embrace modesty

    * (to read the rest of this story from msn.com, click here.)

    it was so nice to read a story like this for a change! seems like i’ve read too many stories about hollywood stars and others with fame + wealth living such a public and extravagant (and often times, selfish) lifestyle. i know they have the right to do what they want w/ their lives, but with their financial as well as public influence, they can do so much (and this doesn’t excuse everyone – including myself from doing what we can with what we have!)…

    worship setlist @ Q – 2008.08.17… 

    back in the saddle this past week leading.
    i look forward to and enjoy the times off from leading. it is so re-energizing for me to be able to participate in the worship versus leading… and it also makes me pray, prepare and work harder when i do return, to give it my best when i am leading again.
    this past week, i was so blessed by everything, the team, the set, the church/community… by God. i needed it. it was good times and i am blessed by the tremendously gifted workers i get to do this with!

      I’d make a snide comment about Koreans right here, but it seems too easy…
