I’ve got 95 theses but an indulgence aint one

Today is the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther's 95 theses Most have, at a minimum, heard his name. If you don't know anything else about him and why he matters, here are some quick notes to bring you up to speed... It's actually pretty interesting! Martin Luther was a German monk and professor of theology who questioned the theology and leadership of the Catholic Church in 1517. He is widely regarded as the guy who kicked off the protestant reformation. The protestant reformation was a split from the Catholic Church. There are now many protestant denominations. Some of the larger "branches" are Adventist, Anglican, Baptist, Calvinist (Reformed), Lutheran, Methodist, and Pentecostal. Luther wrote a profound list of statements, sent a copy to the Pope and supposedly nailed it to a church door. This is his 95 Theses.

The Flavorless Burger of Death

Did you know that Seattle is seen as a foodie city? I’m not a foodie, so I can’t tell you exactly how “foodie” it is. But, people who seem to be more of a foodie than me talk about it a lot. One thing is for sure; some of the best food I’ve ever eaten, I’ve eaten while here in Seattle. Right outside of our apartment there's this little burger shop. Apparently, it's one of those "must go to" places when visiting the city. Everything I thought I knew about a burger I've joyfully allowed this shop to redefine. After being exposed to really good food for a while, your palate tends to change. For us, that change was painfully clear when we were taken out of Seattle. A couple months back Danielle and I took a trip to Redding, CA. Now, you can't live in California without being exposed to In-N-Out. Since we don't have them here in Seattle, we made it a priority to...
