People I really believe in…

June 18, 2009

Hey friends…

I want to take a moment of your time to really, strongly urge you to take a look at the info below & consider responding.  I know many folks are strapped for cash currently, but this is run by a couple of my friends and I whole-heartedly believe in the Kingdom work they are doing.  Thanks for your time.

First Glance is attempting the impossible. Their goal is to raise $66,988.37 by June 30, 2009 at 11:59PM (in just 13 days)!

Why? You may ask…

First Glance is a Christian organization that provides a safe place for students to go where they can shed their burdens and enjoy themselves. This volunteer based organization has over 300 kids a week walk through their doors. In 2008 they ran out of room and needed to expand their facilities. The expansion project is now nearing completion, and they need only $66,988.37 to finish paying it off! This is where you come in!

“Glory to God in the Highest and on earth peace, goodwill to all.”

Here is a slice of an idea…  (no, it’s not a volcano)


Last night I was up to my elbows in oil-y pastels exercising the right side of my brain.  It’s a relatively easy art-form.  For those whose last art class was as a teenager, pastels make a nice re-entry medium for impressionistic sorts of smudges.  Blobs, shapes and smears seem to be the most fun so far.  One drawback is that the colors don’t mix well.
That’s what photoshop is for.

Christmas this year has impressed me with a particular thought and I’ve tried to capture part of the idea with art.  My imagination can run but here’s the thought. Read the rest of this entry »
