Weekend in Seattle

This week is “reading week” here at Regent College and since I have so much to do, I (naturally) decided to head down to Seattle for the weekend to visit some friends. I basically hung out, went to UCF, watched tv, made (and ate) lots of won tons, smoked Cuban cigars for the second time, played in a new Seattle park, and generally just had a good time with my friends. Thanks Dan and Stacey for letting me crash for the weekend!

If you want to see some pictures from the weekend…(clickable for larger versions)

The brand new Cal Anderson Park on Capital Hill near Seattle Central where Dan does his Chi Alpha of Seattle Central Community College. Cal Anderson Park used to be Lincoln Park Reservoir and didn’t look nearly as pretty - as evidenced by this Google Earth image:

Once again on a dark corner in the middle on the night on Capital Hill in Seattle, we partook in some fine Cuban cigars. This time the ladies even got involved:

Stacey and Meghan. This picture is going to your mother Stacey!

Greg and I.

Greg and Dan.

The guys: Me, Chad, Greg, Dan, and Dan.

Chad and I making Won Tons.

And finally, a picture montage in video clip format of Meghan being Meghan.

Now I am back in Canada and have a 5000 word research paper to write on John Calvin’s theology of justification, 2000 word paper on John Calvin’s spirituality, 1000 word book review of Hans Urs von Balthasar’s Theo-Drama Volume III: Theological Dramatic Theory: Dramatis Personae: Persons in Christ, and a 3000 word research paper on how Gordon Fee sees the Holy Spirit especially in his Listening to the Spirit in the Text with reference to his larger work God’s Empowering Presence: The Holy Spirit in the Letters of Paul. Oh, and study Hebrew and read more of Calvin’s Institutes and…and… Restful week, eh? Luckilly I don’t have to get it all done this week… Okay, enough whining.

God Bless

    Yeah, this semester has been one of the more overwhelming semesters I have had, but it has been enjoyable! Heh, cigars will definitely never be a regular thing for me!

    Gordon Fee is an awesome speaker! He is speaking on Philippians which is definitely his baby. Should be a great weekend. I hope you feel better! (I stayed of one of his and Maudine’s cabins on Galiano Island, it was very cool - pictures)

    Wow those pictures are amazing. Now, I’m looking more forward to it, cause I’m a sucker for how beautiful God’s creation is.

    BTW, I love the new layout of the blog. :)

    Glad you like the new layout :) Where are you going on Whidbey Island? If you ever get a chance to go to Galiano (or any of the Gulf / San Juan Islands), take it!
