My brain can't seem to process that it's still August. Even though kids haven't gone back to school here, the weather's changed enough in the past week or two that the shorter days and cooler temperatures with cloudy (sometimes smoky) skies translate as fall, not summer. I've loved summer, but I don't mind a bit.

As the seasons change, we're still going to a church and a bar (and watching movies) every week -- but you can expect some changes in the weeks to come. Writing (and publishing) Cheers and Amen has started a whole bunch of other projects that we're looking forward to telling you about.

You'll always find links to all our posts, though! For example,

This church has deep roots in a shared space

This movie inspired Bill and Ted (and the Simpsons)

This bar only has a couple more happy hours

And just in case you were curious about the Kindle version of Cheers and Amen, here's a link to that. (Did you know you can read Kindle books on your computer?)

I just learned that the dog days are over, but around here it's been warm and weird* this past week. Maybe that's the excuse for one or two of this week's posts. What do you think? We went to church at school, Dean watched a movie that some wouldn't expect to find at Movie Churches, and weirdest of all, we completely skipped going to a bar (but still wrote about it).

*If you're in one of the many areas fires are endangering, we're concerned and praying for you. Smoky skies here are keeping you on our minds and in our hearts.

I haven't gotten adjusted yet to this "get up early and go to work" schedule yet, but seeing the sun rise over the recycling center in the morning is a daily encouragement. We had a number of other encouragements this week, too: visiting a church that meets in a rather surprising place, going to the movies and finding a church, revisiting a favorite film of our youth, and being surprised by the third of our neighborhood bars.

What, you want links? Here you go!

Calvary Chapel of West Seattle

A church in an action film? (In theaters now!)

What was that about a holy hand grenade?

This bar had a surprising population

Have a good week. May your days be swift, productive, and blessed until we meet again.

Can you believe we've been in Seattle for a whole month? Most of the boxes are unpacked. We can (often) get around without resorting to Google maps, and the minivan seems to have settled in. It's even rained a little.

But you really just want to know where we went to church, which bar we walked into, and what the middle ages have to do with movie churches, right? Here you go!

We go to an old church

Movie morality gets medieval

We walk into a bar with dogs

PS Not our dog. The cat's settling in nicely, though.
