“Rejuvenating our Souls” @ St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church
Dec 12 @ 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm

“You were born to walk with God…So why would you walk alone?”
– Dr. Steve McSwain

On the afternoon of December 12 from 1:30-4:30, join St. John’s for a way-point in the middle of the Advent season. For a few hours, rest in quiet, make space for the Holy, and engage in quiet activities (suggestions will be offered and some materials provided.) This season of waiting and expectant anticipation can often incite chaos, anxiety, and sadness within our hearts. In the ninth century, Paschasius Radbertus wrote of one of the ancient names for Mary: Star of the Sea. He offered that Mary is a guide to be followed on the way to Christ “lest we capsize amid the storm-tossed waves of the sea.”

On December 12, let’s savor the afternoon together as a respite from the sometimes turbulent times of the march from Advent to Christmas and rejuvenate our souls together so we may more fully engage the excitement of Incarnation during the remaining weeks leading to Christmas.

Rejuvenating our Souls:
December 12th, 1:30-4:30 pm
St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church

$10 suggested donation for non-members. Please RSVP to mcarroccino@sjbwestseattle.org or by calling St. John’s at 206-937-4545.

Per Kol HaNeshamah, their next “FRED Talk”:

Essayist, poet and award-winning storyteller Merna Ann Hecht will share an evening of Jewish stories taken from the treasure troves of both Eastern European and Sephardic tradition, Saturday evening, Dec. 12, beginning at 8 pm at West Seattle’s Kol HaNeshamah progressive reform synagogue community.

Listen to Hecht as she draws from Jewish tales of wisdom, stories of the great teaching rabbis and Hanukkah lore. This lively evening is slated for listeners ages nine to 99.

“In our digital age, storytelling transports us back to a slower, gentler time,” Hecht says. “The stories I will share are a celebration of the light and hope of Hanukkah, and speak to the love of storytelling that is woven into Jewish history and tradition.”

Hecht, the recipient of the 2008 National Storytelling Network Brimstone Award for Applied Storytelling, is also the founder and co-director of the Stories of Arrival: Refugee and Immigrant Youth Voices Poetry project at Foster High School in Tukwila, WA. She teaches creative writing, humanities and social justice courses for the University of WA, Tacoma.

Hecht is part of an ongoing series of FRED or Fresh Relevant Educational and Dynamic talks at Kol HaNeshamah, 6115 SW Hinds in West Seattle. The talks feature members from the progressive synagogue who share topics or skills they have with the community.

The suggested donation for the evening is $18 for adults, $12 for seniors and students. FRED Talks series is part of Kol HaNeshamah’s Annual Giving Campaign. KHN is a registered 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization.

Walks start on New Year’s Eve anytime between 4 and 7 PM, and on New Year’s Day between 9 AM and 12 noon, at St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church in West Seattle. No fee for the walks, which are noncompetitive.

The New Year’s Eve 5 kilometer route winds through the holiday lights in the Admiral neighborhood, and features beautiful views. The 10 kilometer route also enjoys neighborhood holiday lights, heads down to Alki and features the lights on and around Puget Sound, Elliott Bay and downtown Seattle. Flashlights will be helpful.

On New Year’s Day, the 5 and 10 kilometer routes take walkers through North Admiral, enjoying a number of viewpoints looking over Elliott Bay. 10K walkers also walk along the Puget Sound shoreline, through a number of parks and shoreline features.

This event is hosted by the Emerald City Wanderers and St John the Baptist Episcopal Church, and is sanctioned by the American Volkssport Association. Information about volkssports will be available.

West Seattle Polar Bear Swim 2016 at Alki
Jan 1 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

This starts from the sandy section of Alki, right across from Duke’s (58th/Alki) on January 1st, 2016. From longtime organizer Mark Ufkes:

The West Seattle Polar Bear Swim is on!

‘Jazz Sunday’ service @ Admiral Congregational Church UCC
Apr 3 @ 10:30 am – 11:30 am

West Seattle’s Admiral Congregational Church invites the entire community to join them for their joyful annual post-Easter celebration, Jazz Sunday, on Sunday April 3, 10:30 am.

Now in its twelfth year, this exuberant celebration takes place during the 10:30 service in the church’s sanctuary. Admiral’s director of music, pianist/organist Keith Terhune, is a well-known fixture on the local jazz scene and created this annual event “to inspire us to continue celebrating, even after Easter is over,” says church member Anita Shaffer. “Every year, the worship service following Easter Sunday is jazz-inspired and music-filled, often with Seattle jazz celebrities adding to the experience.”

Joining Terhune and the Admiral Choir this year will be renowned vocal stylist Makini Magee, bassist Mike Eytcheson, and percussionist Mike Bayer, local legends all on the Seattle music scene. All three have performed with legends ranging from Winton Marsalis to Roy Ayers.

Admiral Congregational is a member of the United Church of Christ, a progressive Protestant denomination that consistently champions engaged spiritual practice and informed social
participation. Their website says that they “actively welcome all peoples, regardless of their sex, sexuality, gender identity, social location, economic or immigration status, theology or history.”

Adds Shaffer, “So what if Easter is over for another year? Wear your Easter hat anyway and join us!”

Admission is of course free and the public is warmly invited.

Miracle on 34th Street: A Live Radio Play @ Kenyon Hall
Dec 9 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Twelfth Night Productions (TNP) is proud to present The Lux Radio Theater version of the classic 1947 film Miracle on 34th Street. TNP’s Holiday Radio plays have become an annual tradition for community members seeking to revel in holiday cheer with friends and family. Previous radio show productions have included It’s A Wonderful Life and A Christmas Carol.

The radio play is based on the holiday movie favorite of the same name and will be presented as a live 1940’s radio broadcast. Miracle on 34th Street tells the timeless story of an old man who calls himself Kris Kringle and is hired as the Macy’s department store Santa. His claim to be the real Santa Claus becomes a court case and a young child’s belief could make all the difference. “Faith is believing when common sense tells you not to.”

Our cast of talented Radio players also includes our incredible Foley (sound effects) actors and the one-of-a-kind 1929 Wurlitzer Pipe Organ.

“If you close your eyes during this production you won’t miss a beat because all of the components – the sound effects, the organ, the commercials, and the Mistletones – work together successfully to recreate the live radio experience of the 1940’s and 50’s.” Drama in the Hood.

This live radio show will be performed at historic Kenyon Hall, one of West Seattle’s favorite venues, December 9, 10, 16 and 17 at 7:30 pm and December 11 and 18 at 3:00pm. Bring the family and make this a holiday tradition! Tickets are available online at Brown Paper Tickets, and at Kenyon Hall, 7904 35th Ave. SW, Seattle WA, an hour before the show on performance days. Prices are $18 for adults and $15 for students & seniors.

For every toy donated, you will receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win a great collaborative gift pack with something from each of the breweries given away at the end of the pub crawl! We thought this was a great way to make this event even more special and help a great charity. So help some kids in need of a great Christmas, and join us for a night of fun in West Seattle December 10th!”

Miracle on 34th Street: A Live Radio Play @ Kenyon Hall
Dec 10 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Twelfth Night Productions (TNP) is proud to present The Lux Radio Theater version of the classic 1947 film Miracle on 34th Street. TNP’s Holiday Radio plays have become an annual tradition for community members seeking to revel in holiday cheer with friends and family. Previous radio show productions have included It’s A Wonderful Life and A Christmas Carol.

The radio play is based on the holiday movie favorite of the same name and will be presented as a live 1940’s radio broadcast. Miracle on 34th Street tells the timeless story of an old man who calls himself Kris Kringle and is hired as the Macy’s department store Santa. His claim to be the real Santa Claus becomes a court case and a young child’s belief could make all the difference. “Faith is believing when common sense tells you not to.”

Our cast of talented Radio players also includes our incredible Foley (sound effects) actors and the one-of-a-kind 1929 Wurlitzer Pipe Organ.

“If you close your eyes during this production you won’t miss a beat because all of the components – the sound effects, the organ, the commercials, and the Mistletones – work together successfully to recreate the live radio experience of the 1940’s and 50’s.” Drama in the Hood.

This live radio show will be performed at historic Kenyon Hall, one of West Seattle’s favorite venues, December 9, 10, 16 and 17 at 7:30 pm and December 11 and 18 at 3:00pm. Bring the family and make this a holiday tradition! Tickets are available online at Brown Paper Tickets, and at Kenyon Hall, 7904 35th Ave. SW, Seattle WA, an hour before the show on performance days. Prices are $18 for adults and $15 for students & seniors.
