The Seattle Times: Local News: Jesus gets a toehold at taverns

The Seattle Times: Local News: Jesus gets a toehold at taverns:
"A few months ago, this minister was the talk of the bar when he won $105 playing pull-tabs.
What are these ministers doing here — at the SoundTrack Bar and Grill in Interbay, near the Ballard Bridge? Where earlier this year there was a police drug raid? And a shooting in the parking lot? And where tonight a working girl is sweet-talking any man who strays near the bar's side door?
'Where would Jesus hang out?' shrugs Pastor Rick Reynolds, the one with the spectacles. 'Jesus ran with the hookers and the tax collectors. It's the opposite of where most church people say we should be going.'"
