What I Dithcovered in Theattle: Thecond in a Therieth

What I Dithcovered in Theattle: Thecond in a Therieth

I'm now done with day two in Seattle, where I'm attending the New Conspirators conference. Here's what I've learned:
* Seattle has pretty good coffee. Don't know if you'd heard that before. El Diablo and Caffe Vita are destined to be my breakfast and lunch destinations while I'm here.
* A quarter doesn't buy you near as much street parking as you might hope.
* Walking in Seattle, with its steep inclines, is a good workout for your calves and buttocks. Seriously, I can feel the burn.
* If you are driving within the broadcast range of 103.7 "The Mountain," you don't need to bother with your i-Pod. You also only rarely need to leave your car.
* Every "Mars Hill" is just a wee bit different from every other "Mars Hill."
* Good fences may make good neighbors, but good churches may make something else entirely.
* I could live here, I think.
More to come!

Behind the Strangeness

Lisa Rieck is a reader and writer who likes to discuss good ideas over hot drinks and gets inspired by the sky. She takes in all kinds of good ideas as a proofreader for InterVarsity Press.

Rebecca Larson is a writer/designer/creative type who has infiltrated IVP's web department, where she writes and edits online content. She enjoys a good pun and loves the smell of freshly printed books.

David A. Zimmerman is an editor for Likewise Books and a columnist for Burnside Writers Collective. He's written three books, most recently The Parable of the Unexpected Guest. Follow him on Twitter at twitter.com/unexpguest. Find his personal blog at loud-time.com.

Suanne Camfield is a publicist for InterVarsity Press and a freelance writer. She floats ungracefully between work, parenting and writing, and (much to her dismay) finds it impossible to read on a treadmill. She is a member of the Redbud Writers Guild and blogs at The Rough Cut.

Likewise Books from InterVarsity Press explore a thoughtful, active faith lived out in real time in the midst of an emerging culture.
