Sunrise in Seattle II -- best spots in town

After asking around, there are a few spots in the Seattle area where you can get good shots of sunrise:

1. If you want the sun in it, try out the small park at 15th and Olin Pl in Capitol Hill.

2. The west side of Queen Anne (10th and 11th Ave) have amazing views of the cascades. Looking west towards the cascades (they glow).

3. West seattle (there's a dock right at Salty's where you can see a nice view of downtown.

4. On a Bremerton ferry.

Looks like #2 is more accessible and more promising =)

Watched this movie in the small group gathering



A beautiful yet distressing story about the great theologist.

Found a few quotes from Bonheffer....


When God calls a man, he bids him come and die.


(Am I willing to die for Him?? Die for him! I can't even keep up my promises to him...)


Your love is your own private possession, but marriage is more than something personal — it is a status, an office. Just as it is the crown, and not merely the will to rule, that makes the king, so it is marriage, and not merely your love for each other, that joins you together in the sight of God and man. As you gave the ring to one another and have now received it a second time from the hand of the pastor, so love comes from you, but marriage from above, from God. As high as God is above man, so high are the sanctity, the rights, and the promise of love. It is not your love that sustains the marriage, but from now on, the marriage that sustains your love.


(Very different view of marriage... "it's not my love that sustains the marriage, but the marriage that sustains my love"...

And marriage is from God.)

Marriage is more than your love for each other. It has a higher power, for it is God's holy ordinance, through which He wills to perpetuate the human race until the end of time. In your love you see only your two selves in the world, but in marriage you are a link in the chain of the generations, which God causes to come and to pass away to His glory, and calls into His kingdom. In your love you see only the heaven of your own happiness, but in marriage you are placed at a post of responsibility towards the world and all mankind.


(Am I ready to take up this responsibility that inherits from the marriage?

Love among the two can be easy, marriage is not....)

"Don't stir up love..... until you're ready" (Song of Songs 2:7)

Some quotes are from this site

You must be talking about sunset?
Last time I checked, the sun rises from the East...the places you mentioned are prime spots for sunset...
