    he's doing very well.  Has cornered the Gen-Y market very commandingly, although Overlake and the Bethany Christian Church are giving him a run for his money.

    Fortunately, St. Mark's Episcopal Cathedral has a new Dean, a borderline Gen X-er and one who is both very smart and very funny.  Hopefully, we can get a program going to "go where the youth are," and start minister to them - because, to me, Mark Driscoll will forever be a sexist, creepy person.

    Maybe he's a minister of the Gospel to some, but it's layered with such misogyny and homophobia, it's hard to find the "good news."

      were married at St. Mark's -- lovely cathedral (need to get to a service there next time Mr. Scribe and I are up in Seattle).

      Considering the location, they should really expand their ministry to the UW community -- that would be a great start. I went to a church in high school and college/early career that had a strong College/Careers group; they didn't meet at the church but rather at a local restaurant that had a big banquet room; folks could get their coffee/goodies then settle in for discussion of a current topic then a brief worship service. It's a good way to get folks who might feel uncomfortable going to an actual "church".

      Driscoll reminds me of the Anne Lamott saying: "You can tell you've created God in your own image when God hates all the same people you do."

      for their compline service on Sunday night. It's a men's choir singing songs. Like a free concert.

      Plus, I liked them because their preacher (who's gay) was friends with Bishop Desmond Tutu. Tutu spoke there once or twice.
