Crop Walk

Jenny and I did the Crop Walk this year, a 10k walk to raise money to fight world poverty and hunger. It was last Sunday and we walked from the Capitol building in Olympia, down around the lake and over to the brewery, then back to the Capitol. We got our youth group involved; it was a lot of fun.

This is one thing I like a lot about our new church; it seems to focus more on what we CAN do to have a positive effect on the world around us instead of what a lot of Christian churches do in complaining about the things we cannot change.

If you have a Crop Walk in your area I would encourage anyone to get involved.

Also, on a similar note, check this out, sign up and take action:

I'm going to a one.org event this Saturday to hopefully mobilize some action in the bay area. I'm intrigued to see what could happen.
