Sunday, October 28, 9:15-10:00 am, Thomas Merton/Father Louis, The Writer who Took a Vow of Silence; the Monk who Speaks Still, with Barbara Cairns

Thomas Merton (1915-1968), a Trappist monk who took a vow of silence and wrote 45 books, was a contemplative revered by advocates for justice. He was a prophetic voice who cautioned against embrace of technology we cannot manage, a church reformer, a bridge between Christian and Buddhist practice, and a witness who shared his spiritual journey that we might embrace our own.

****

Barbara Cairns practices and teaches at Seattle’s Epiphany Parish, where she worked with Reverends Doyt Conn and Kate Wesch to design the adult education program. She has taught on the Christian mystics, George Herbert, St Paul, and the Noah story.

Saturday, November 3, 9:30-11:30 am, Speaking of Dying, with Trudy James

The film, Speaking of Dying, a 30-minute documentary, shines a light on death and dying through the words and stories of patients, family members and medical providers. Their personal stories empower viewers to learn and become more comfortable talking about their own end-of-life choices and desires.

It is a gentle visual introduction to important resources, such as hospice, palliative care, POLST (Physician Order for Life-Sustaining Treatment) forms, VSED (Voluntary Stopping Eating and Drinking), and the Death with Dignity law. An open discussion with Q & A will follow the screening.

****

Trudy James is a graduate of the University of Kansas and Union Theological Seminary in New York City and is an interfaith hospital chaplain. She created congregation-based AIDS care teams in the early days of the AIDS epidemic in the South. Later, she developed an AIDS Care Team program in Seattle and served as a chaplain at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. After retiring, she spent four years pioneering community-based end-of-life planning workshops and two years producing a 30-minute documentary film based on those workshops. The film, Speaking of Dying, has been used by individuals, groups and families to become more comfortable discussing choices and resources needed to become empowered for their own positive ending.

=============

Sunday, November 4, 9:15-10:00 am, For All the Saints, with the Rev. Kate Wesch

Do you wonder what happens to people after they die? Are you confused about what “we” believe about heaven, hell, and purgatory? Have you wondered what it means to pray for the dead? And who are the saints anyway? During the week of All Saints’ and All Souls’ Days, join me as we explore these weighty theological topics using Bishop N.T. Wright’s slim volume For All the Saints?: Remembering the Christian Departed as our guide. No need to read the book unless you want to, simply come with an open mind and a discerning heart.

=============

Sunday, November 11, 2018, 9:15-10:00 am, How and When Do You Pray? Do You Have a Rule of Life? with Fr. Charles Searls Ridge, D.Min.

Both the Hebrew Scripture and the New Testament have many directives on prayer. The challenge is that the world and our lives today are incredibly different from Bible times. Fortunately, our Anglican/Episcopal prayer books provide us with a 600-year-old pattern for how to pray, both in community and on our own.

In this class we will explore these liturgies and introduce the concept of a Rule of Life. Before coming to class, please write down your present prayer habits/schedule. This is just for you. Also please bring a Book of Common Prayer with you and be prepared to take notes.

Sunday, December 2, 9:15-10:00 am, Wendell Berry: On Matters of Simplicity, with Karen Glover

God’s earthly creation is fashioned in exquisite balance, but it can be and has been disrupted by unbalanced human behavior. Literature, whether story, poetry, or essay is one of the most particular and effective ways of being present in and relating to the material world that God so loved. At its best, it inspires action towards a loving relationship with God’s Creation. In this session, we will explore one modern American writer’s literary reflections on these profound issues.The works of Wendell Berry are beautifully rendered, hard-hitting, and heart breaking as truth often can be. Quote from Kari: Wendell Berry speaks to my heart because he sees and shows all of the complexity of human beings and obviously loves his people, both real and literary, in the most honest, honorable way I can imagine, very much as we aspire to do as Christians.

****

Kari Glover is a longtime member of Epiphany Parish. Now retired, she was a corporate lawyer based in Seattle for several decades. The daughter of a Montana rancher and farmer, philosophy major in college, and 25-year volunteer board member with public libraries, she is an avid and appreciative reader.

=================

Sunday, December 9, 2018 9:15-10:00 am, Introduction to Underhill House/Silence, with the Rev. Susan Dean

Underhill House:

Imagine a place of quiet, where people can slip in; let down and relax; sit undisturbed in meditation, reflection or prayer; and then leave as they are ready.
Imagine a place of hospitality, where trained listeners can help people find their way; not get in the way, but be there, truly present.

Imagine a place of welcome, where people of faith or no faith can seek and discover the presence of the holy in their lives.

Our need for silence in a noisy world is growing. The Rev. Susan Dean, Founder and Executive Director of Underhill House, will introduce us to this ministry which provides a quiet place to pause for prayer on Capitol Hill. In the season of Advent, join us to reflect about silence, listening, and making meaning in our lives.

December 16, 2018, 9:15-10:00 am, Joseph, the Father of Jesus, with Ken Duvall

Join long-time SJB parishioner, Ken Duvall, as he guides us in exploring Joseph, the Father of Jesus, through Adam Hamilton’s book, Faithful: Christmas Through the Eyes of Joseph.

A summary of the book reads: “From his beginnings as a humble carpenter to his all-important role as the earthly father of Jesus Christ, Joseph’s place in the nativity story is sometimes overlooked but contains valuable lessons for all of us. Join Adam Hamilton as he examines Christmas through the eyes of Joseph. Absent from much of the biblical narrative, Joseph never spoke a word, but his courageous actions were crucial to the birth of Christ and God’s salvation plan for humanity.”

Per Ken, people attending the class should not feel obligated to buy or read the book.

****

Ken Duvall has been a member of St. John the Baptist for many years. He’s been involved in Books and Bricks, is a Eucharistic Minister, and a Lector. Ken is an EfM (Education for Ministry) graduate and is involved in Stephen Ministries. In his spare time Ken is a regular volunteer at the Center for Wooden Boats.

Sunday, December 23, 2018, 9:15-10:00 am, Books and Bricks, St. John’s Mission to Africa, with Janet Johnson, Paul Dahlke, and Mary Mac

St. John the Baptist has had a connection with Mulundi Village, Kenya, since 2004 when the parish partnered with Mulundi Village to build an Anglican church, St. James Batavia. Since then this ministry has expanded to outreach to Mulundi Primary School and several secondary schools in the area. Some of the missioners visiting Kenya this past July will speak about their experiences, including teaching, visiting schools, worshiping in the local church, and distributing the pencil cases made by SJB’s Arts and Crafts Co-op.

**

Janet Johnson grew up in Mulundi Village. Her parents valued education highly and ensured she had an opportunity to pursue higher education. Many others were not as fortunate, and Janet and her husband, Mike, are both committed to helping provide a future for children in Africa.

Br. Paul is a Life Professed Friar in the Order of St. Francis an Anglican Franciscan Religious Order. He has also completed a pilgrimage to the Holy Land as well as a mission trip to Mulundi, Kenya with the Books and Bricks organization.

Mary Mac is a working art teacher and artist. Printmaking is her medium of choice. She has also completed pilgrimages to Assisi and the Holy Land, and just returned from teaching art in the primary school in Mulundi, Kenya.

Seattle Writes (for teens): Piloting the Category Five Hurricane: Getting Through Tough Times @ High Point Library
Oct 21 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

At the High Point Library:

Teens are invited to join poet Ann Teplick in a poetry-writing workshop that explores the themes of self-care and resilience.

In this poetry-writing workshop for teens, we will explore the themes of self-care and resilience. In a world where, in addition to our own personal challenges, we witness the struggles of those whom we love, and of those whom we haven’t had the good fortune to meet; in a world where overwhelm is often the wave that spins us to our outer limits—what brings us to solid ground?

In two workshops at the High Point and Delridge Branches, teens will read and be inspired to respond to the work of poets such as Li-Young Lee, Nikki Giovanni, Naomi Shihab Nye, Suheir Hammad, Rumi, Gretel Ehrlich, Ntozake Shange, David Wagoner, Francisco X. Alarcon, and more. The material for each workshop will be different. Please attend one or both! All participants are invited to read and celebrate their work on Sunday November 4th from 1:30-3:30 p.m. at the Highpoint Branch of the Seattle Public Library. Do join us!

Ann Teplick is a Seattle poet, playwright, prose writer, and teaching artist. She writes with youth at Seattle Children’s Hospital, through Writers in the Schools; Child Study Treatment Center, through Pongo Teen Writing; and at Coyote Central. She’s received support from Artist Trust, Seattle Office of Arts and Culture, 4Culture, and The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. Her writing has appeared in Raven Chronicles, Crab Creek Review, The Louisville Review, Drash, Spartan, Hunger Mountain, Jack Straw Writers’ Anthology, 4Culture’s Poetry on the Busses, and more. Her plays have been showcased in Washington, Oregon, and Nova Scotia. She is currently working on a young-adult novel in poems where resilience and self-care save the day in the face of tragedy.

Library events and programs are free and everyone is welcome. This workshop is intended for teens. Registration is not required for this writing class, but seating is limited. Seating will be on a first come, first seated basis. Doors to the meeting room will open 30 minutes prior to the start of the class. We’ll try our best to make room for all interested writers, but students may be turned away if the room is filled to capacity. Due to the fire code, we cannot exceed the maximum capacity for our rooms.

Please bring a pen/pencil and paper or fully-charged laptop to each class.

Accommodation requests may be made with seven days advanced notice to LEAP or call (206) 615-1380 (v/tty).

Seattle Writes supports local writers through programs, workshops, write-ins, and by providing spaces to work throughout the city.

The Seattle Writes series is made possible with the generous support of The Seattle Public Library Foundation. Find out more about Seattle Writes programs and resources.

Space is limited at library events. Please come early to make sure you get a seat. Due to the fire code, we can’t exceed the maximum capacity for our rooms.

As we develop our skills and capacity for StorySharing, we will become more effective healers, reconcilers, and ambassadors of Christ in the world.

Sunday, October 28, 9:15-10:00 am, Thomas Merton/Father Louis, The Writer who Took a Vow of Silence; the Monk who Speaks Still, with Barbara Cairns

Thomas Merton (1915-1968), a Trappist monk who took a vow of silence and wrote 45 books, was a contemplative revered by advocates for justice. He was a prophetic voice who cautioned against embrace of technology we cannot manage, a church reformer, a bridge between Christian and Buddhist practice, and a witness who shared his spiritual journey that we might embrace our own.

Saturday, November 3, 9:30-11:30 am, Speaking of Dying, with Trudy James

The film, Speaking of Dying, a 30-minute documentary, shines a light on death and dying through the words and stories of patients, family members and medical providers. Their personal stories empower viewers to learn and become more comfortable talking about their own end-of-life choices and desires.

It is a gentle visual introduction to important resources, such as hospice, palliative care, POLST (Physician Order for Life-Sustaining Treatment) forms, VSED (Voluntary Stopping Eating and Drinking), and the Death with Dignity law. An open discussion with Q & A will follow the screening.

****

Trudy James is a graduate of the University of Kansas and Union Theological Seminary in New York City and is an interfaith hospital chaplain. She created congregation-based AIDS care teams in the early days of the AIDS epidemic in the South. Later, she developed an AIDS Care Team program in Seattle and served as a chaplain at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. After retiring, she spent four years pioneering community-based end-of-life planning workshops and two years producing a 30-minute documentary film based on those workshops. The film, Speaking of Dying, has been used by individuals, groups and families to become more comfortable discussing choices and resources needed to become empowered for their own positive ending.

Sunday, November 4, 9:15-10:00 am, For All the Saints, with the Rev. Kate Wesch

Do you wonder what happens to people after they die? Are you confused about what “we” believe about heaven, hell, and purgatory? Have you wondered what it means to pray for the dead? And who are the saints anyway? During the week of All Saints’ and All Souls’ Days, join me as we explore these weighty theological topics using Bishop N.T. Wright’s slim volume For All the Saints?: Remembering the Christian Departed as our guide. No need to read the book unless you want to, simply come with an open mind and a discerning heart.

=============

Sunday, November 11, 2018, 9:15-10:00 am, How and When Do You Pray? Do You Have a Rule of Life? with Fr. Charles Searls Ridge, D.Min.

Both the Hebrew Scripture and the New Testament have many directives on prayer. The challenge is that the world and our lives today are incredibly different from Bible times. Fortunately, our Anglican/Episcopal prayer books provide us with a 600-year-old pattern for how to pray, both in community and on our own.

In this class we will explore these liturgies and introduce the concept of a Rule of Life. Before coming to class, please write down your present prayer habits/schedule. This is just for you. Also please bring a Book of Common Prayer with you and be prepared to take notes.

****

Fr. Ridge has recently retired after 57 years of parish ministry in the US and Latin America. He and his wife, Courtney, live in West Seattle. Mary DeVeau was his parish administrator when he was Rector of the Church of the Ascension, Magnolia.

Sunday, November 25, 2018, 9:15-10:00 am, Advent Practices for Anyone, with The Rev. Kate Wesch, and Katie Bucy

Preparing for Christmas can feel more frenzied than fun, especially when we have unrealistic expectations of ourselves and lose sight of what we are celebrating.

Sunday, December 2, 9:15-10:00 am, Wendell Berry: On Matters of Simplicity, with Karen Glover

God’s earthly creation is fashioned in exquisite balance, but it can be and has been disrupted by unbalanced human behavior. Literature, whether story, poetry, or essay is one of the most particular and effective ways of being present in and relating to the material world that God so loved. At its best, it inspires action towards a loving relationship with God’s Creation. In this session, we will explore one modern American writer’s literary reflections on these profound issues.The works of Wendell Berry are beautifully rendered, hard-hitting, and heart breaking as truth often can be. Quote from Kari: Wendell Berry speaks to my heart because he sees and shows all of the complexity of human beings and obviously loves his people, both real and literary, in the most honest, honorable way I can imagine, very much as we aspire to do as Christians.

****

Kari Glover is a longtime member of Epiphany Parish. Now retired, she was a corporate lawyer based in Seattle for several decades. The daughter of a Montana rancher and farmer, philosophy major in college, and 25-year volunteer board member with public libraries, she is an avid and appreciative reader.

Sunday, December 9, 2018 9:15-10:00 am, Introduction to Underhill House/Silence, with the Rev. Susan Dean

Underhill House:

Imagine a place of quiet, where people can slip in; let down and relax; sit undisturbed in meditation, reflection or prayer; and then leave as they are ready.
Imagine a place of hospitality, where trained listeners can help people find their way; not get in the way, but be there, truly present.

Imagine a place of welcome, where people of faith or no faith can seek and discover the presence of the holy in their lives.

Our need for silence in a noisy world is growing. The Rev. Susan Dean, Founder and Executive Director of Underhill House, will introduce us to this ministry which provides a quiet place to pause for prayer on Capitol Hill. In the season of Advent, join us to reflect about silence, listening, and making meaning in our lives. Besides developing this emerging ministry, Susan serves as a spiritual director and has gifts in discernment, women’s spirituality, and healing ministry.

=======================

December 16, 2018, 9:15-10:00 am, Joseph, the Father of Jesus, with Ken Duvall

Join long-time SJB parishioner, Ken Duvall, as he guides us in exploring Joseph, the Father of Jesus, through Adam Hamilton’s book, Faithful: Christmas Through the Eyes of Joseph.

A summary of the book reads: “From his beginnings as a humble carpenter to his all-important role as the earthly father of Jesus Christ, Joseph’s place in the nativity story is sometimes overlooked but contains valuable lessons for all of us. Join Adam Hamilton as he examines Christmas through the eyes of Joseph. Absent from much of the biblical narrative, Joseph never spoke a word, but his courageous actions were crucial to the birth of Christ and God’s salvation plan for humanity.”

Per Ken, people attending the class should not feel obligated to buy or read the book.

****

Ken Duvall has been a member of St. John the Baptist for many years. He’s been involved in Books and Bricks, is a Eucharistic Minister, and a Lector. Ken is an EfM (Education for Ministry) graduate and is involved in Stephen Ministries. In his spare time Ken is a regular volunteer at the Center for Wooden Boats.

St. John the Baptist has had a connection with Mulundi Village, Kenya, since 2004 when the parish partnered with Mulundi Village to build an Anglican church, St. James Batavia. Since then this ministry has expanded to outreach to Mulundi Primary School and several secondary schools in the area. Some of the missioners visiting Kenya this past July will speak about their experiences, including teaching, visiting schools, worshiping in the local church, and distributing the pencil cases made by SJB’s Arts and Crafts Co-op.

Seattle Writes (for teens): Piloting the Category Five Hurricane: Getting Through Tough Times @ Delridge Library
Oct 28 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

At the Delridge Library:

Teens are invited to join poet Ann Teplick in a poetry-writing workshop that explores the themes of self-care and resilience.

In this poetry-writing workshop for teens, we will explore the themes of self-care and resilience. In a world where, in addition to our own personal challenges, we witness the struggles of those whom we love, and of those whom we haven’t had the good fortune to meet; in a world where overwhelm is often the wave that spins us to our outer limits—what brings us to solid ground?

In two workshops at the High Point and Delridge Branches, teens will read and be inspired to respond to the work of poets such as Li-Young Lee, Nikki Giovanni, Naomi Shihab Nye, Suheir Hammad, Rumi, Gretel Ehrlich, Ntozake Shange, David Wagoner, Francisco X. Alarcon, and more. The material for each workshop will be different. Please attend one or both! All participants are invited to read and celebrate their work on Sunday November 4th from 1:30-3:30 p.m. at the Highpoint Branch of the Seattle Public Library. Do join us!

Ann Teplick is a Seattle poet, playwright, prose writer, and teaching artist. She writes with youth at Seattle Children’s Hospital, through Writers in the Schools; Child Study Treatment Center, through Pongo Teen Writing; and at Coyote Central. She’s received support from Artist Trust, Seattle Office of Arts and Culture, 4Culture, and The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. Her writing has appeared in Raven Chronicles, Crab Creek Review, The Louisville Review, Drash, Spartan, Hunger Mountain, Jack Straw Writers’ Anthology, 4Culture’s Poetry on the Busses, and more. Her plays have been showcased in Washington, Oregon, and Nova Scotia. She is currently working on a young-adult novel in poems where resilience and self-care save the day in the face of tragedy.

Library events and programs are free and everyone is welcome. This workshop is intended for teens. Registration is not required for this writing class, but seating is limited. Seating will be on a first come, first seated basis. Doors to the meeting room will open 30 minutes prior to the start of the class.
