Photo Update

I went through and updated my online photos. I switched to using a different Picasa layout, which is easier to navigate. I also increased the size to 1024x768 (many of them were previously smaller). Added albums: Here's the whole shebang. Enjoy.

Last night I went to see Wicked in Seattle. It was a blast!

Here are some pictures. I also put up some pictures from when I went to Bubershoot with some of the same people.

Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival

On Saturday I went with the Tonns to the 30th annual Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival. It's the real reason Caleb flew in from Texas. Don't let him fool you with all of that Hicks Lake mumbo jumbo. More photos here.

The Law Fulfilled in Christ: Commandments 1-5

About a month ago, I gave a talk on a Sunday morning in Tacoma. I was asked to type up my notes and share them, and I promised that I would post them here on my blog.

My subject is the relationship between the Ten Commandments and the Christian: The Christian is not under the Law, and therefore does not set out to follow the ten commandments as the "constraint" on his behavior: however, in Christ there are new and higher motives for living with a righteousness that fulfills the Law and in fact goes beyond it.

My hope is that it will be an encouragement to Christians to live in the freedom for which Christ has set us free (Galatians 5:1).

On a similar vein, I would also recommend a talk my dad gave at Altoona conference this year, which you can get in mp3 format here (track 03: if you're in a hurry, you can listen to the last 10 minutes starting at time index 36:00).

Here are my notes (PDF).

I would appreciate your feedback.
