Tacoma's Church Of The Month - 06/13/07 12:12 PM
When I first started highlighting the area churches last month, I thought I would call the post "Church Of The Week". But North Tacoma does not have enough churches to make this possible, so I altered my thinking to have the feature called "Church Of The Month". This month's church is Immanuel Presbyterian Church. Immanuel Presbyterian Church is located at 901 North J Street in Tacoma. Worship services are held on Sundays at 10:30am. Immanuel Presbyterian has a long history in Tacoma.

I've been tagged for a Meme - 06/03/07 12:18 PM
Yesterday, Marc Blasi, tagged me for a meme. And I smiled. It must mean I've arrived. :) I searched Meme's and found a great post by Lucky Lang. His post Meme Tutorial and Alphabetical Index of all Memes on Active Rain! kept me from Meme'ing someone for the second (or third!) time. I highly recommend it if you get tagged for a meme. Here are five things you don't know about me (in no particular order...) 1) Since January of 2007 I have been taking fencing lessons. I really, really enjoy it.
