Church Outside


Dillon Community Church just moved its service outside to the Amphitheater for the summer. The weather this morning was awesome! Our Pastor, Brian preached on false gods and how we all have them in some form or another. I really appreciate Brian's candor when speaking about sin in the congregation and in himself. It is so helpful and healthy for me to be consistently reminded of what my sin looks like in the presence of a perfectly holy God. The message regarding sin reminded me of a song called "I Repent" by Derek Webb.

I Repent

words and music by derek webb

i repent, i repent of my pursuit of america's dream
i repent, i repent of living like i deserve anything
of my house, my fence, my kids, my wife
in our suburb where we're safe and white
i am wrong and of these things i repent

i repent, i repent of parading my liberty
i repent. i repent of paying for what i get for free
and for the way i believe that i am living right
by trading sins for others that are easier to hide
i am wrong and of these things i repent

bridge
i repent judging by a law that even i can't keep
of wearing righteousness like a disguise
to see through the planks in my own eyes

i repent, i repent of trading truth for false unity
i repent, i repent of confusing peace and idolatry
by caring more of what they think than what i know of what we need
by domesticating you until you look just like me
i am wrong and of these things i repent

Colorado Update


Well Katie's tummy is getting bigger and bigger. We went to the doctor on Monday and heard Will's heartbeat again. Everything sounded good.


Last night we had an awesome sunset out the back porch.


Here is something that I plan on doing a lot of while we are here at the apartment. Eating dinner on the back porch after work is so refreshing. Sunglasses are required.


On Tuesday we went climbing again with Andy and Jillian. Katie came up to watch and snapped some shots. She is a great photographer.

Rocky Start

So this morning I woke up to my cell phone's blistering ring at 6:59 and got out of bed to check ebay listings and my email. I went to bed the night before at 4am thinking that man I worked so hard on this "Together for the Gospel" website and it looks great. I nailed it. Well the only email that I recieved this morning was titled "EMERGENCY!" from the client that I am working with to create the website.

It turns out that the site was all screwed up and looked aweful on his end. I ran upstairs to get Andy who "likes troubleshooting" these sorts of things according to him :). 7:01am - Knock, Knock, Knock! "Andy I need your computer. The site is all screwed up on internet explorer" Andy - "....ok" Well, sure enough Andy came down about five minutes after his computer and stayed with me for two hours until the problem was solved. It was a sweet relief to say the very least.

According to Google Analytics the site recieved close to 800 new visits today alone and just under 5000 page views. People from the US, Canada, Europe and yes even Singapore were logging in to look at TogetherfortheGospel.org so Its a good thing Andy and I figured it out. I mean, Its a good thing Andy figured it out.

This afternoon was quite a bit more relaxing. I went to work at 11:00, saw a fox and some prairie dogs on the way, it rained, and then we went climbing, which is my new obsession. It is so much fun! Well enough about selfish me, here are some photos of Andy and Jillian climbing...
