4:00ish – they power went out, first we thought it was just a breaker. Ten a neighbor banged on our door. 4:05 – saw on twitter lots of activity. Hearing it’s out all over San Diego. Crazy! 4:08 – trolleys are down, people are leaving work. Beer thirty came early! Thankful I didn’t go back…… Continue reading San Diego blackout live blog
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDt7dNMbLKU Today’s video post is a synopsis of about 10 conversations I’ve had in the last 60 days. All of them get to the question, “Adam, something has changed inside of you. I like it sometimes and I don’t like it sometimes, what is it?” One thing I’ve learned to get comfortable with in the…… Continue reading Being Good News
We are a one car household. Fortunately for us, we live in a city where you can get away with having just one car because we have a decent public transportation system. Our transportation system, San Diego Metropolitan Transit System, also has a policy that permits bikes. This allows me the daily privilege of riding…… Continue reading Rules for Public Transportation
Thankful. That’s just about the only word that can describe my heart right now. The last week at NYWC left me completely spent both physically and mentally– but I sit here now with my spirit soaring. Feet aching, eyes leaky, and thankful. Back in December I had this silly belief that YS’s best days were…… Continue reading Thankful

We hire a group of high school students to run our children’s ministry outreach program. Here’s a highlight video they showed in church at the end of their experience. I’m so thankful for the impact these students had on our…… Continue reading New Heights Project highlight video
I love the audacity great faith brings. It’s idealistic. It’s over-the-top. It’s incomprehensibly arrogant simplicity. It’s stupid fun to be around. And that’s why I love my church. This little church in the city truly believes they can be instrumental in seeing a new San Diego rise up to be an amazing place to live.…… Continue reading Nehemiah vs. The American Church
Summer officially began on Memorial Day, 5 weeks ago. A whole hodgepodge of things have happened. Lisa has been here for just over a month. So far that has pretty well. She does fit into the flow of our house… so it really hasn’t been hard at all. Finding volunteer work for her for the…… Continue reading Summer update
Kristen and I are now 5 months into our experiment. Our goal is to grow or purchase 25% of our food locally in 2010. So far, it’s been a fun experiment! And in the process we’ve found a hobby that the whole family can participate in. One thing that has been incredibly satisfying is knowing…… Continue reading Urban Farming Inspiration
Stoney rules!, originally uploaded by mclanea. Today we took the whole family on an outing to dog beach. We all had a great time, but I think Stoney had the most fun of all. Here’s a link to the rest of our pictures from the beach.
Our little backyard garden got some love from the KPBS website today. You know… we are garden celebrities now. 25% of our food in 2010 will come from our own garden or organically produced sources. That’s the goal. Anyone know where I can buy a Snickers tree?
