Men’s Fellowship Luncheon @ Masonic Hall
Mar 30 @ 12:00 pm

Event: Men’s Fellowship Luncheon.
Donation: Free
Where: Masonic Hall, 4736 40th Ave. SW
When: Friday, March 30, 2018. Doors open @ Noon.

Purpose: This is not a Masonic event, although the members of the Masonic Lodge are preparing the meal and providing the facilities–and we express our appreciation for their hard work. It is also not a religious event, although men of Christian faith may wish to include this luncheon as part of their Good Friday remembrance. There will be no formal program. Instead, this is an opportunity for all men of our West Seattle community to gather together, and share a great meal and fellowship. Meet your neighbors and fellow workers. Newcomers and those in need especially welcome. If we succeed this first year, we plan to make it an annual event. So your attendance will be critical. (And, if someone wants to do the work needed to organize a similar Women’s luncheon, the sponsor would be happy to sponsor that as well).

RSVP: Not required; however, RSVP to martinmonk@yahoo.com or 425-681-5024, will be appreciated to help us plan the amount of food needed.

There are just 76 individuals in the Southern Resident Killer Whale population (J, K and L pods), nearing their historical low.

Together, we can make a difference for the orcas – if we act now, and work together. Join us to become part of the solution for the southern residents. Learn more about the issues, and get up to speed on current initiatives. Join a sub-pod, and put your skills to work for the whales. It’s all hands on deck for the orcas!

Bring your ideas, your questions, and a snack to share. Please register at brownpapertickets.com so we know how many people to expect.

Whale Trail meetings are held the first Tuesday of each month at C&P Coffee in West Seattle. Meetings are free and open to the public. Donations are welcome.

Regardless, it would be hard for me to overstate the impact of jazz on my life. I’ve met most of my friends through jazz; I’ve traveled; I’ve played and recorded with some amazing musicians. I really love those nights when I have my best stuff, the band has it all working, and we make a real connection with an audience … wow! It’s pretty heady stuff!”

Mahonia Evaluation Project Work Party — April 7!

The Pacific Northwest Mahonia Evaluation Project is hosting its next work party on Saturday, April 7, 10 am to 12 noon. To participate, meet at the Mahonia Research Plot, located at the south end of the South Seattle College campus.

This is a unique opportunity to participate in ‘citizen science,’ observe the growth of over 90 kinds of Mahonia, and work with some of the region’s top horticulturists. While most people know Mahonia as “Oregon Grape,” the genus includes about 100 species native to eastern Asia and western North America. We are evaluating species and cultivars that show tremendous landscape potential, many which are currently not available in PNW nurseries.

For 2018, we will hold volunteer work parties on the 1st & 3rd Saturdays of each month, from 10 am-noon. Activities vary with the season, but typically include weeding, mulching, and related plant stewardship. Snacks and refreshments are provided, and each session includes a tour of the research plot.
For more information about the Pacific Northwest Mahonia Evaluation Project, click here or send your questions to mahoniaseattle@gmail.com. To find our location and driving directions, click here. And when you’re ready, please sign up for any of our community work parties. It’s easy to sign up—just click here.

Our next work party is on Saturday, April 7, from 10 am to noon.

This research is sponsored by South Seattle College and funded by the Washington State Department of Agriculture.

Looking forward to seeing you among the Mahonia.

Sunday, April 8, 9:15-10:00 am in the Parish Hall
Nature of Person, with The Rev. Kate Wesch

Have you ever wondered about the human soul? What is it and why does it matter? Are you curious as to the Christian understanding of what comprises a person? This conversation explores the definition of a person with particular focus upon how we care for and keep our souls.

The Rev. Kate Wesch is the Rector of St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church.

Sunday, April 15, 9:15-10:00 am in the Parish Hall
C.S. Lewis, with Jon Roberts

C.S. Lewis is perhaps the twentieth century’s greatest Christian Apologist and his enduring stories are infused with Christian themes and insights. In this forum we will cover a brief biographical sketch of C.S. Lewis, review how he bases his works on core biblical themes, and discuss how his work and thoughts are impacting our current understanding of Christianity.

Jonathan Roberts is a member of Epiphany Parish in Seattle and grew up attending the University Presbyterian Church. He has read C.S. Lewis’s books throughout his life and for the last six years has been sharing his enthusiasm for Lewis with a book group that meets weekly at Epiphany Parish. He is married to Elizabeth Roberts and they have three teenage children. Jonathan has worked in the technology industry for thirty years, both at Microsoft and Ignition Partners, a Venture Capital firm he co-founded eighteen years ago.

Sunday, April 22, 9:15-10:00 am in the Parish Hall
The Kingdom of God , with The Rev. Kate Wesch

The Kingdom of God is where what God wants to happen always happens the way God wants it to happen. God’s Kingdom is spatial and timeless and it is right here, right now. Jesus speaks of this kingdom more than anything else in scripture. In fact, it is mentioned nearly 300 times in Holy Scripture. So, what exactly is this Kingdom and what does is mean for us today?

Sunday, April 29, 9:15-10:00 am in the Parish Hall
William Wilberforce: Reformation in Manners, with Jon Roberts

William Wilberforce achieved two great objectives in his life. The first, and best known, was his work leading to the abolition of slavery within the United Kingdom, but the second was his ability to effect a dramatic change in British human behavior. Wilberforce leveraged a speech given by George III at his coronation challenging the British people to live more principled and moral lives. Wilberforce cajoled and shamed, but also inspired the British to create a worldview that radically changed attitudes toward child labor, prostitution, and animal cruelty, among other causes. Wilberforce’s efforts shifted the consciousness of the British people and set the stage for what we now refer to as Victorian morals. In this forum, we will explore what motivated Wilberforce and how his Reformation in Manners movement worked and how we can apply this approach to addressing the dysfunction in our current culture.

Sunday, May 6, 9:15-10:00 am in the Parish Hall
Introduction to Labyrinths: Sacred Geometry

Ann Lockhart What is this pattern on the ground? A bit of history, a bit of language to help understand how and where labyrinths got started, and why they are still meaningful in today’s world. We’ll play with finger labyrinths, dot-to-dot and seed patterns.

Ann Lockhart is a member of Epiphany Parish in Seattle. Ann first walked the labyrinth at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco in the late ‘90s. A love of labyrinths has been part of her spiritual life ever since. In the past year, Ann has been trained as a labyrinth facilitator by Veriditas, the organization founded at Grace Cathedral, and has participated in the Global Labyrinth Society Annual Gathering at IslandWood on Bainbridge Island. She has led Quiet Day labyrinth retreats and encourages use of Epiphany’s labyrinth at every opportunity.

Sunday, May 13, 9:15-10:00 am in the Parish Hall

Calendar Date: Thursday, 4/12/18

Event: West Seattle Chamber Luncheon – Needle Cleanup, Graffiti and Illegal Dumping – SPU Speaks Out

“Tracy Cramer, Lead Clean City Inspector housed in Seattle Public Utilities, is a real hands on, down-to-earth person who knows and is excited about her program”, reported Jim Guenther. “Her area of emphasis is needles, graffiti and illegal dumping, which I believe impacts our business community and West Seattle in general. ​She describes the program very well, including an explanation of the reporting system. This system is said to be in the implementation stage, which Tracy refers to as ‘alpha’. Her message is not to tell us what we must do, but to help us in addressing these problems.”

•Sharps, yes we are talking needle cleanup

•Graffiti on private property

•​Illegal dumping

Join us for lunch on April 12th for an opportunity to connect with other business professionals and talk about the impact on your business and West Seattle.
