It's pretty far from the streets of Seattle to Shaw Island:
Yesterday I preached there -- think I should have said less, which is an awful feeling for a preacher. One advantage of my keeping on the move is hammering away until I get it right. New congregation next week. And a few people said they were encouraged.
This past week I was on vacation, didn't go "do the bars." My brother and family were in town. I got to be a tourist.
Took the "Underground Tour" http://www.undergroundtour.com/ It was interesting to hear that homeless people used to sleep in those basements that used to be storefronts in what is now subterranean Seattle.
