While on the beach, please remember:
~ Walk carefully; there’s life beneath your feet!
~ Touch gently with one wet finger.
~ Observe animals where they are and please avoid picking them up.
~ Please only move rocks that are small enough to be moved with one hand and return them to the position in which you found them.

‘Get Out’ @ Westside Unitarian Universalist Congregation
Feb 16 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Equity, Social Justice and the Political Uses of Horror
Screening of the Film “GET OUT” w/Post-film Panel Discussion

Unconscious bias? Micro-aggressions? Privilege System?
What does all that mean, exactly?
Just because you’re invited doesn’t mean you’re welcome…

Get Out is a stinging criticism of white liberalism from Academy Award nominated director Jordan Peele, who doesn’t take aim at Neo-Nazis and other whites who angrily shout the n-word.

Instead, Peele looks at those who profess their lack of racism, but only do so if they can maintain their dominance over black people in the most insidious manner possible.

Participate in a post-film panel discussion of themes from this Oscar-nominated film featuring Marcus Green, journalist, playwright, and executive editor of the South Seattle Emerald; Diana Falchuk, manager for arts and racial equity at City of Seattle, Office of Arts and Culture; and Cecelia Hayes, equity social justice and engagement manager for King County.

Come join us for a REAL scare!

This half-day workshop will explore the history of why white identity was intentionally created, how it has functioned to legitimize oppression, and what people of all racial identities can do to challenge the false ideal of whiteness in our culture. Participants will be asked to reflect on how whiteness plays a role in their lives, through storytelling and dialogue.

There will also be an opportunity for race-based caucusing. This event is an opportunity for connection, learning, healing, growth, and conversation.

All Sunday forums are held from 9:15-10:00 am in the Parish Hall.

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
Following the Path: Labyrinth Pilgrimage, with Ann Lockhart

Learn more about how labyrinths can enrich our spiritual lives and can become part of our daily practice. We will celebrate spring and Mother’s Day by walking a labyrinth: journeying in, centering down, and letting go.

Sunday, May 20, 9:15-10:00 am in the Parish Hall
The Saint John’s Bible: Igniting the Spiritual Imagination, with Brad Neary, Director, The Saint John’s Bible Heritage Program

Neary’s presentation will focus on the story of the original handwritten and illuminated folios of The Saint John’s Bible — 16 years in the making — as well as on the production of the stunning Heritage Edition. Limited to 299 sets, the seven volumes of the Heritage Edition of The Saint John’s Bible are true to the scale, beauty and artistic intent of the original manuscript. Following his presentation, Neary will host an open house session for anyone interested in taking a closer look at the Gospels and Acts volume of the Heritage Edition.

Brad Neary serves as director of The Saint John’s Bible Heritage Program for the western third of the country. He also serves as a Senior Development Officer on Saint John’s University’s Institutional Advancement staff (Collegeville, MN). Neary has been a member of the Episcopal Church since May 2000 and has been a parishioner at Epiphany Parish since moving to Seattle in August 2013.

Sunday, May 27, 9:15-10:00 am in the Parish Hall
The Seven Spiritual Disciplines, with The Rev. Kate Wesch

We often talk about spiritual disciplines or holy habits, things we practice as Christians. The seven spiritual disciplines include: daily prayer, weekly worship, Sabbath, pilgrimage, keeping the liturgical calendar, tithing, and fasting. This forum intends to be an overview of these practices with ideas for incorporating them into our busy lives and a conversation about how these holy habits transform our souls over time.

‘I Am Not Your Negro’ and Discussion with Special Guest Robin DiAngelo @ Westside Unitarian Universalist Congregation
Apr 20 @ 6:30 pm – 10:30 pm

“I Am Not Your Negro” and Discussion with Special Guest Robin DiAngelo

An Equity and Social Justice Project of Common Quest Adult Education, WSUU; and Black UU’s of the Pacific Northwest

“In his critically acclaimed film, director Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished – a radical narration about race in America, using the writer’s original words. He draws upon James Baldwin’s notes on the lives and assassinations of Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King, Jr. to explore and bring a fresh and radical perspective to the current racial narrative in America.”

After the film, noted scholar, author, and activist Robin J. DiAngelo will speak on the continued relevance of Baldwin’s work, and its particular challenge to white-skinned folks looking for ways to advance the cause of racial justice. The evening will end with a brief community Q & A, moderated by event host Cecelia Hayes

Date: Friday, April 20 Doors Open 6:30 Event Begins: 7:30-10:30 Cost: Free No Registration Required

Location: Westside Sanctuary

*Robin DiAngelo works in the fields of critical race discourse analysis and whiteness studies, and is author of the forthcoming (June 2018) Beacon Press Book “White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism.” She has lectured at the University of Washington, and served as a tenured professor of multicultural education at Westfield State University, Westfield, MA.

*Cecelia Hayes is the equity, social justice and engagement manager for Executive Services at King County. She served nine years as a full-time faculty member, specializing in African American Cultural Studies in the department of sociology at Northeastern Illinois University, Chicago, IL. She is a founding member of Black Unitarian Universalists of the Pacific Northwest.

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?

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.

Seattle Yarn is so excited to be hosting Peter Qualliotine on Friday April 27th at 7:00 pm!

Peter has spent his life working for gender equality and focuses on men’s accountability and cultural attitudes towards women.

With the emergence of the #metoo movement and our current cultural and political climate we find this topic more vital than ever to discuss as a community. With his talk on “Men’s role in ending gender-based violence” Peter will be discussing what men can do to stop sexual harassment, sexual assault, intimate partner violence, stalking and commercial sexual exploitation. Join this conversation about toxic masculinity and learn how men can be allies in the movement towards gender justice.

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
Following the Path: Labyrinth Pilgrimage, with Ann Lockhart

Learn more about how labyrinths can enrich our spiritual lives and can become part of our daily practice. We will celebrate spring and Mother’s Day by walking a labyrinth: journeying in, centering down, and letting go.

Sunday, May 20, 9:15-10:00 am in the Parish Hall
The Saint John’s Bible: Igniting the Spiritual Imagination, with Brad Neary, Director, The Saint John’s Bible Heritage Program

Neary’s presentation will focus on the story of the original handwritten and illuminated folios of The Saint John’s Bible — 16 years in the making — as well as on the production of the stunning Heritage Edition. Limited to 299 sets, the seven volumes of the Heritage Edition of The Saint John’s Bible are true to the scale, beauty and artistic intent of the original manuscript. Following his presentation, Neary will host an open house session for anyone interested in taking a closer look at the Gospels and Acts volume of the Heritage Edition.

Brad Neary serves as director of The Saint John’s Bible Heritage Program for the western third of the country. He also serves as a Senior Development Officer on Saint John’s University’s Institutional Advancement staff (Collegeville, MN). Neary has been a member of the Episcopal Church since May 2000 and has been a parishioner at Epiphany Parish since moving to Seattle in August 2013.

Sunday, May 27, 9:15-10:00 am in the Parish Hall
The Seven Spiritual Disciplines, with The Rev. Kate Wesch

We often talk about spiritual disciplines or holy habits, things we practice as Christians. The seven spiritual disciplines include: daily prayer, weekly worship, Sabbath, pilgrimage, keeping the liturgical calendar, tithing, and fasting. This forum intends to be an overview of these practices with ideas for incorporating them into our busy lives and a conversation about how these holy habits transform our souls over time.

Nurturing the Environment and Food Access workshop @ Camp Long

DNDA’s Let’s Talk Race Series 2018‎: Nurturing the Environment and Food Access Workshop. Coming up on June 16th, 1–6 pm. Register in advance at tinyurl.com/RaceSeries5

What would it look like to have equitable access to food that nourishes our bodies and nourishes the land? Join us at Camp Long to talk about race in the context of Nurturing the Environment and Food Access. This outdoor workshop will create space for community members to engage in courageous conversations that rely on our vulnerability rather than on instant resolutions. This event will explore how our food systems are built upon the racial injustices of slavery, and how environmental protection is inseparable from indigenous sovereignty. By exposing histories of white supremacy and colonialism in the United States, we can reveal their impacts today. Through timelines, open dialogue, and circle practice, participants will share stories of food traditions and connections to land that build bridges across difference and promote healing.

Envisioning South Park’s new Residential Small Lot Zoning @ SP Hall
Oct 2 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Envisioning South Park’s new Residential Small Lot Zoning (RSL)

Seattle is going to change thousands of residential lots from ‘Single Family’ to ‘Residential Small Lot’ (RSL) as part of the MHA zoning reform. The rules covering RSL have been totally rewritten and there are many questions about how it will affect our neighborhoods, including most of South Park.

First, what is RSL and what kinds of new development are we likely to see?

Second, how does RSL address displacement, affordability, density or sustainability?

Finally, how can we improve RSL so that it can be the most effective before the ordinance comes before Council?

If you live in South Park, are interested in zoning, or are a homeowner, environmentalist or neighborhood advocate, join Matt Hutchins, AIA for this informational talk.

–Matt Hutchins is an architect specializing in affordable housing, backyard cottages, infill housing and sustainable architecture. He is also a housing advocate with MOAR (More Options for Accessory Residences) and is working to reform zoning for the betterment of local communities, the city and the planet.

Rather than charging any entry fee, please donate to my friend Corina’s fundraiser here: Million Tampon Challenge www.facebook.com/milliontampons/

Haunted Hike

Saturday, October 13, 2018

Kiwanis Schoenwald Park

16030 Sylvester Road SW

Burien, WA

(Drive behind Sylvester Middle School)

5:30-8:30 pm

Boy Scout Troop 360 (Lake Burien Presbyterian Church) is hosting this great family event. Boy Scout and Girl Scout Troops, and other community groups from across the region, are coming together to offer a haunted hike this Saturday, October 13, for all kids and their families in the West Seattle area. The cost is $2 per person. There will be Halloween-themed displays and activities along the trails throughout this beautiful, forested park.

Everyone should bring a flashlight to help as they walk from display to display because the trails can be very dark. There will also be Halloween treats available at many of the displays. Roasting monkey brains that strangely look a lot like marshmallows will occur as well. The kids will have lots of fun, and this event is a great way to learn more about the many Scouting youth programs that are available to families in the area.

And the rumors that a 10-foot tall T-Rex skeleton will be roving the park in search of Cub Scouts to eat may be true. But our hero Boy Scouts, using spears, will be protecting all kids from this largest carnivore in King County. Listen for the roaring as you start your hike.

Learn about creating ‘intentional households’ @ HomeStreet Bank

Wednesday, October 17, 6-7 pm, HomeStreet Bank, 4022 SW Alaska St.

Where Am I Going to Live? How Am I Going to Pay For It?

The Westside Neighbors Network has assembled an awesome resource for helping bewildered residents navigate through housing options beyond Craigslist and grandmother’s basement.

We’ve zeroed in on three programs for creating Intentional Households: Home-Sharing, Co-Buying and Co-Renting.

We’ve poured dissertation-level efforts into researching these options, grilled the experts, then did some more research just in case.

As a result, we’ve come up with a program that can inspire confidence in those willing to venture into new means of forming happy households.

Come over for wine and hors d’oeuvres, and enjoy a casual, short presentation on the Resource. You’ll also be invited to attend the FREE Presentation Saturday, Nov. 3, where we have speakers to dive more deeply into each program, plus plenty of time to ask questions and get answers.

The Presentation opens the doors to our next big resource, which we’ll roll out early in 2019.

No selling. No recruiting. That’s a promise!

Resident killer whales prey almost exclusively on salmon and depend particularly on Chinook (the least common species of salmon in the Pacific Northwest), which makes up the majority of their known diet. Despite the importance of Chinook to the survival of individual killer whales, they frequently choose to share this critical resource with family members. Brianna Wright, Eva Stredulinsky, Graeme Ellis and Dr. John Ford conducted a 12-year study (2002-2014) examining patterns of prey sharing behavior among northern resident killer whales. In particular, the talk will discuss the prevalence of prey sharing between close maternal relatives, and the role that this cooperative behavior may have played in the evolution of this population’s unusually stable social structure.

A scientific article presenting the results from this study, entitled “Kin-directed food sharing promotes lifetime natal philopatry of both sexes in a population of fish-eating killer whales, Orcinus orca”, is available free of charge from the journal Animal Behavior at the following link: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0003347216000737

About the Speaker

Brianna Wright holds a BSc. in Biology and Anthropology from the University of Victoria and a MSc. in Zoology from the University of British Columbia. She began her career in whale research as an undergraduate co-op student with Fisheries and Oceans Canada’s marine mammal research group in 2007, transitioning to full-time work as a research technician for the same team in 2008. Her graduate thesis used Dtags (a suction-cup attached device that records dive depth, body position and underwater sound) to investigate the fine-scale foraging behavior of resident killer whales. In 2014, Brianna graduated from UBC and returned to the Pacific Biological Station in Nanaimo, where she currently works as a marine mammal biologist for Fisheries and Oceans Canada. In 2016, she published a paper with Eva Stredulinsky, Graeme Ellis and John Ford about prey sharing behavior by resident killer whales and its influence on the evolution of their unique social structure. This paper was awarded Fisheries and Oceans Canada’s Paper of the Year award in 2016. Her recent research includes projects on resident killer whale population monitoring, feeding behavior and echolocation, as well as habitat modeling for large baleen whales to help reduce the impact of vessel strikes on these vulnerable populations.
