A few blogs I like

You’ll notice I have links to a few blogs in the blogroll to the right, and there are a few of those that I find particularly noteworthy that I wanted to call a little attention to.  Not all of them are church, or religion related, and some are maintained by friends of mine.

Ed’s Photodoodle Blog is a great site from a creative photographer friend, showcasing his talents.  Also, he likes to rant about religious people who make him angry, and so if you like a good rant, visit his Two She Bears blog.

Cameron is a fellow who just found my blog and let me know that he visits churches and writes about it too!  It’s a good read.

Pastor John McLarty is a Seattle-based Seventh Day Adventist pastor who I met for coffee after reviewing his church and had a great conversation with.  He’s just about the only liberal Seventh Day Adventist you’ll ever hear about.  He’s also a really nice guy.  His blog is here.

Chris Owens is a former Methodist pastor who has recently been promoted from preaching to supervising and helping other preachers.  I’ve never met him in person, but we have mutual Facebook friends, and when it comes to religious arguments, he’s really kept me on my toes.  His blog is here.

If you want to visit Alaska, or just want to read about it, an old High School buddy of mine can give you some advice with his blog.

And finally, my favorite teacher in the whole world, who I haven’t been face to face with in over 30 years, writes about her childhood in California.  It’s a fun and interesting read.

There will be more church-stuff this weekend!

St. Luke Parish

Well, it’s been a few weeks, I’ve been enjoying my summer, and a little break from posting on the blog, but now I’m back at it.

Yesterday morning, my girlfriend and I went up to Shoreline, just north of Seattle, to visit a Catholic church.  I’ve already done a Catholic church, but that one was only a Thursday morning mass, not the full show, and so I’ve been wanting to go to another Catholic church for a while.  This one is near a friend’s house, and we were invited up to breakfast after the service, and so it was  a good excuse to make the trip.  Not that the trip was very far.  Shoreline is the city immediately north of Seattle, and we live in the northern part of the city, so it was actually fairly close.
