It's been a long day already! i'm currently editing a business plan for a friend of mine who has a unique outlook on Christian community. He pastors a church in a rural area of Washington and is trying to bring economic vitality to his extended community through the business. Social responsibly is an area that the evangelical church needs to pay greater attention to. Anyhow, i'm down with job creation and economic revitalization as part of the mission of the Church.
i enjoyed the coffee shop Jacob suggested. It is two blocks from Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma. i have forgotten just how much i love the college environment. The energy, vibe and openness to experiment are so refreshing to a progressive thinker like myself. Now if this coffee shop had live Jazz i'd be totally in my element. i've found a new place to hang out and that is cool.
As i've mentioned before, i really enjoy meeting new people and sharing stories of our journeys with Christ. There is little support for the indie-allies meetup in my area. When i went to one in Bellingham, a college town, we had a great group but in Tacoma there are hardly any people interested. i would love to be part of an emerging cohort in the Tacoma Washington area.
