‘Miss Representation’ screening a success! (photos)

On November 18, our sanctuary was packed with people who came to talk about women, media and our culture.

Queen Anne UMC screened the movie Miss Representation that evening. Following its premiere at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, the documentary feature film Miss Representation explores how mainstream media contribute to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America.

A beautiful Sunday in Queen Anne

I was late to church again this Sunday. Ok, I’m usually a wee-bit late (or a lot bit), but this time I had a good excuse!

I walked to church and the view around me was so beautiful that I had to stop and take photos every couple of feet. And then after church, my husband and I walked to brunch at the Queen Anne Cafe, and again, it took longer than it should have because I had to stop and take photos.

Here is my photo journey of our neighborhood, which at this time of year resembles one big garden. The photos aren’t the best quality — I took them with my cell phone. But, the best camera is the one you have.

The world is God’s coloring book.
