RSS Reader

Many of you know that I read a lot of blog posts. I'm always talking about them etc. How do I have time to go check all these websites and see if they are updated? Simply, I don't. I use a program called Google Reader. Google Reader is free to anyone with a google account. Whenever a website, blog, ebay search, craigslist search, etc. gets posted, if I have it subscribed in my reader it automatically downloads it into my reader and I can browse through all the new posts. I know Jen Easton also uses Google Reader and between the two of us we probably browse 400 blog posts a day. But it only takes us about 20 minutes to do so (I do so over my morning cup of coffee) and I just read the posts that stand out to me.
Sounds pretty cool huh? You too can use a reader program to get all the latest blog posts from your favorite blogs.
Here are some videos explaining more about how it works:

Project Serve was a Success!

Last week we did three service projects. Thursday we went down to Chehalis to deliver furniture with Northwest Furniture Bank. Friday we helped build a Habitat for Humanity house. And Saturday we went to downtown Seattle to feed people on the street who were hungry.

We'll be posting some pictures and videos soon.

On Thursday we ended up on the news. Here's some links to the videos:

Project Serve Info!

We have three opportunities for you to get involved and help people out this week!

Thursday we are going down to Chehalis with the Lemke's and NW Furniture Bank. We will be taking truckloads of furniture and mattresses to flood victims. So eat some breakfast and bring some good shoes and gloves! The form is available here. Please meet at the church at 9am and we will be back by 5pm.

Friday we will be going to Tacoma to work on houses for Habitat for Humanity! They have a pretty hefty release form but it'll be worth it! You can find the form by clicking here. Bring some work clothes/gloves and be ready for the possibility for a little rain. Luckily that won't "damper" our spirits! (Sorry I couldn't help it.) If you haven't signed up yet, please call us and make sure we have room in a car for you! We will meet at the church at 9am and be back at 5pm. The cost is $5 and will cover transportation and lunch.

Saturday we will be meeting at the church at 9am to prepare for our trip up to Seattle. We will be feeding the homeless in Seattle and will be back by 5pm. Please bring good walking shoes and a jacket in case it rains. If you have extra clothes to donate you may bring them. Cost is $10 to cover food and transportation. For the form, click here.

If you have any questions, please contact Blake or Jen!

And remember, if you haven't signed up yet, you need to call us ahead of time to make sure we have open seats!

Recommended Books

At Beach Freeze we focused on spiritual disciplines. I hope you try to continue with some of these different exercises you learned. Here's some recommended resources to help you further in your journey.

Mudhouse Sabbath: An Invitation to a Life of Spiritual Disciplines (Pocket Classics) I read this book recently and it is a great book. The author Lauren Winner shares her about how her Jewish heritage enriches her Christian spirituality.

Enjoy the Silence: A 30- Day Experiment in Listening to God (invert) (available at the Ignite info table for $5)

Devotion.: A Raw-Truth Journal on Following Jesus (invert) (available at the Ignite info table for $5)

12 Days With Jesus (available at the Ignite info table for $4)
