I do not know about you, but I have always had an interest or maybe even a passion to be involved with two special types of aide organizations. The first one is the type of agency that brings clean water to small desperate communities throughout the world and the second is the type of organization or ministry that provides micro loans to tiny entrepreneurs around the world. Well World Encounter http://worldencounter.org/ is this second type of organization and I was contacted by my great friend Stephanie Gates to see if I would be the photographer for their fundraising event. I said yes in a heartbeat, even before I check my schedule. This whimsical scheduling methodology luckily even worked out for me this time so I was indeed able to go. Continue reading

Drug Deal on the Metro Transit Light Rail
So I had an interesting experience this afternoon riding home from work on the lightrail train in Minneapolis. I had left work early enough so that the train was not full of professionals and corporate types, you know like me. There were many lower income people most of whom are great hardworking individuals just trying to eek out a living for themselves and their family.
During our trip to New York City we had the honor of stopping at ground zero to rememeber those that were lost and all those that still live with the pain of that day. This was a very moving place.
So today I received a call from AARP (Yes the huge senior’s organization). At first I was thinking I was getting old and they were calling to offer me a membership. But alas, it was something else. They were calling to request that I would be their photographer at the Minnesota State Fair. I would get all kinds of press coverage and get links to my web site and all that stuff bla bla bla…

With all the turmoil going on in Iran right now, this movie might be one of the most important movies of a generation or even a life time…
This is a must see movie..
Many people with kind compassionate hearts are appalled at the concept of capital punishment. The idea that we as a government would take the life of someone that has committed a heinous crime is in conceivable to then and they think it is against God’s law or against the will of God somehow. I often hear the arguments like
• as the person is alive, they have an opportunity to repent
• It is not our place to kill a person. The is to be left to God
• The ten commandments say “Thou shall not kill”
These are common thoughts and common misconceptions so let’s try to sort these issues out.
