26th Annual Fairmount Ravine Restoration & Cleanup – UPDATE
Mar 31 @ 8:30 am – 10:30 am

The Fairmount Ravine Preservation Group will sponsor the 26th Annual Spring Cleanup and Reforestation of Fairmount Ravine, Saturday March 31st at 8:30 am. Meet at top of ravine (Forest St. and Fairmount Ave.).

This year’s cleanup will focus more on removing ivy from trees in the ravine and cleaning sidewalks on the Admiral Bridge. We will also remove garbage and debris under the bridge, but this work is already 90% completed, thanks to a very industrious and concerned local resident.

Wear boots and gloves. Bring a pruning saw and/or large loppers if interested in removing ivy from trees in the ravine. Bring a flat shovel and push broom to clean bridge sidewalks.

Delicious beverages and food from our local merchants will be provided.

We extend a special invitation to those who use the ravine to access the waterfront; please donate a couple of hours of your time to keep this greenbelt clean, healthy and pristine.

More info – call Matt at 206 747-4167 or email at mattalgieri@yahoo.com

Sunday Adult Forums in the Season of Easter
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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Sunday, September 9th, Tibbetts United Methodist Church is hosting a Salad Potluck, Dessert Contest, and Ministry Fair after worship service ~11:30 am-1:30 pm, in Adams Hall on the basement level of Tibbetts UMC.

Please bring any kind of salad or salad ingredient(s) and we’ll have a feast of fellowship. In theory, at least, salad leaves plenty of room for a dessert contest and you are the judges! This year the ministry fair will also focus on explaining the unique structure behind each of our four ministry areas – Stewardship, Worship, Outreach, and Discipleship. All are welcome! The leadership team looks forward to seeing you there!

Open hearts. Open minds. Open doors.

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.

At the sale, you’ll find unique gift items, including chocolates, Advent calendars, nativities, crosses, holiday and home décor, scarves, ornaments, baskets, and much more. In addition to Ethical Trade items, you’ll find: holiday cards from Noel House (a Catholic Community Services shelter for homeless women), tasty treats sold by the Pre-K and 3rd grade classes to benefit WestSide Baby, Tanzanian rosaries and batiks items from Maryknoll, Catholic lip and beard balms benefiting youth ministry, Purpose Jewelry made by women who escaped Human Trafficking, and Olivewood Items from the Holy Land.

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. Come explore ways you can prepare intentionally for Christmas by observing Advent practices. A variety of options will be discussed for families of all sizes and stages of development.

****

Katie Bucy is a lifelong Episcopalian, raised at St. Paul’s Episcopal Seattle in the Anglo-Catholic tradition.

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.

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.

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

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.
