I'm Publishing a Photobook

Well, this is different. I'm Kickstarting a photobook on Liberty Village. This is fun. Check out the video, and then I'll give you a bit of the story.

We moved into Liberty Village to plant Liberty Grace Church in late December 2012. A week after moving in, I started a photoblog called Liberty Village 365. It's a creative and technological community, and I thought it could be a way to connect with people here. It was: I made at least one great contact through the photoblog.

I soon discovered a lot of other benefits. I enjoy it; it provides me with a hobby and a creative outlet. It helps me improve my photography skills. It gets me into the community regularly, and helps me observe what's going on around me.

I've long been inspired by Sam Javanrouh, the photographer behind A Daily Dose of Imagery. He posted a photo a day for ten years, and his work is amazing. It was fun to take a course with him last year on street photography.

This week, I'm at the Liberty Village Art Crawl with some of my pictures, and I've launched a Kickstarter.

It's been a blast. Check it out. If you're interested, you can follow Liberty Village 365 by RSS, Facebook, or Twitter. It could be a prompt for you to pray for us, for this great community, and for Liberty Grace Church.

Photos from the Launch of Liberty Grace Church

Thanks to those who prayed for the launch service of Liberty Grace Church last Saturday night. It was a good night. We had a number of people attend from the local community, as well as some supporters and friends. Olivia Chow, our Member of Parliament, also joined us. While we are about more than a weekly service, this is an important step in our development, and we're very grateful.

I can't say enough about our team of workers. As I watched them spend hours carrying chairs, hauling sound equipment, cleaning, and pitching in wherever needed, I was overcome with gratitude. God has been good to us so far. Please continue to pray for the work here in Liberty Village, Toronto.
