Youth site launched, TXP magazine

It's been awhile since I updated the news on this site. Contrary to popular belief, that is not because nothing has been going on, but because I've been so busy I haven't made time to blog. I recently finished working on a website for a friend who is the youth pastor at his church.

Christianity Today

Speaking of magazines, the April issue of Christianity Today has a headline that reads All Churches Should Be Multiracial. I couldn't agree more. I'm a half-Japanese American married to a Russian Estonian, and we worship in downtown Lexington at The Rock / La Roca UMC, a church that has a large Spanish speaking population.

Back to the Grindstone

Spring break was last week, and it was nice and relaxing. I was able to catch up on a lot of website projects I'd been hired to do, and have recently taken on a few more. I bought the DVD box set of the 2004-05 season of Law & Order: SVU, and we went through 25 episodes in about 2 weeks. There's nothing quite like watching Ice-T break down doors, calling bad guys "perps."
