CATHEDRAL DISCUSSION GATHERING ON WEDNESDAY, MAY 12

While the world is meeting via Zoom, the Saint Mark’s community has an opportunity to participate in Dismantling Racism Trainings with The Absalom Jones Episcopal Center for Racial Healing in Atlanta, Georgia, focused on increasing racial understanding, healing, and reconciliation. Let’s take advantage of this significant resource – and then share our learning and reflections in an upcoming Zoom gathering on the evening of Wednesday, May 12 at the cathedral! The Absalom Jones Center provides tools and experiences that allow faith communities to engage in dismantling racism through education, prayer, dialogue, pilgrimage, and spiritual formation.

Six people per date from one community are permitted to sign up for a seven-hour training, which is scheduled on many upcoming weekdays and Saturdays. Although there is no charge to take the training, pre-registration is required no later than one week in advance. Register here. (Note that Zoom classes are offered only until it is safe to meet in person again, as classes are filling up quickly, so sooner is better!) Questions?

Cathedral Survey on Community Life and Formation

with No Comments

A Message from Dean Thomason

Dear Friends,

As we emerge from the pandemic, the ways we form community and encourage one another in the spiritual journey presents challenges and opportunities. Your input is important as we plot a course together, as the cathedral community, in all the ways that takes shape. I am writing to you today to ask you to complete a 10 minute survey that asks several questions about the ways we gather, the ways we learn and grow spiritually, and the ways we can do things differently, better, or more effectively, for people of all ages. Regardless of your level of involvement in the life of the community, I am asking each and every person who counts Saint Mark’s Cathedral as a spiritual resource to please take this survey. I yearn for your voice to be in the mix at this critical juncture for the cathedral.

Your voice matters!

Take the 10-minute survey here.

So important is this process, the vestry has retained a nationally-recognized consultant to guide us in it. Jamie Martin-Currie, M.S. Ed. of Houston, Texas, brings a wealth of experience to this work, and in addition to the parish survey, she will host several Listening Groups in mid-May, focusing especially on Christian formation for all ages at Saint Mark’s. If you would like to participate in one of those, please contact Erik Donner at edonner@saintmarks.org or 206.323.0300 x 217.

As we envision how we move forward in the post-pandemic world, we are mindful of how the ways we gather shape us, form us, as Christians—in worship and prayer, classes and forums, music, fellowship, justice and outreach work, and spiritual exploration—it all matters…and it is a lifelong endeavor. I am glad to be on the journey with you in this wonderful community of Saint Mark’s Cathedral. I am,

Your Brother in Christ,

The Very Rev. Steven L. Thomason
Dean and Rector

In the cosmology of North and South American peoples, Turtle Island is the geographic region covering Canada, United States, Central America, and South America. Join together online Sunday, April 25, at 11:00am to worship Jesus with Episcopalians from all over the Diocese of Olympia led by our Circles of Color and focused on the languages, cultures, and experiences of the First Peoples of Turtle Island, with a specific focus on communities from within Province 8. This online service is a chance for diocesan-wide worship, learning, connection, and conversation, as well as an opportunity to give our working clergy a Sunday off from preaching and presiding.

The One Service will include a Town Hall webinar after worship with Bishop Rickel and members of Circles of Color to process the worship experience and go deeper into dialogue around issues of race and culture in our diocese, with special attention to the experiences of Indo-Hispanic/Indigenous peoples and a specific focus on communities from within Province 8. And join us beginning at 10:00am for a musical prelude featuring music from churches across the diocese! All are welcome, and congregations are encouraged to “attend” together in whatever ways you can – viewing parties, online watch parties, or whatever means are safe and responsible given the state of the pandemic at that time.

Follow the link below for the full schedule and links to access the service and the Town Hall.

UPDATED! Jesus and the Disinherited—Community Lenten Book Study

with No Comments

Canon Walter Brownridge leads Q&A and concluding reflections 

SUNDAY, APRIL 11, 12:30-2 P.M., via Zoom. Register at this link

 


Introductory presentation by Canon Brownridge occurred SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 1-2 P.M., via Zoom. See video below. 

Community discussion with small breakout groups occurred WEDNESDAY, MARCH 24, 6:30-8 P.M.

Gather via Zoom on February 28 at 1 p.m. with Saint Mark’s Theologian-in-Residence, The Rev. Canon Walter Brownridge, for an introduction to acclaimed African-American religious leader and theologian Howard Thurman’s legacy (watch here or above). Canon Brownridge’s presentation leads off an invitation to read for Lent Thurman’s foundational work Jesus and the Disinherited, exploring the Gospel as a manual of resistance for the poor and disenfranchised. (You may recall that Canon Brownridge discussed Thurman in his sermon of January 17.) We will follow up on March 24 for an online discussion of the book together with Saint Mark’s clergy at 6:30–8 p.m.

Howard Thurman was a pastor, teacher, preacher, writer, and mystic. He played a guiding role in many social justice movements and organizations of the twentieth century. His writings formed the spiritual foundation for the modern, nonviolent civil rights movement and he was a key mentor to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. In Jesus and the Disinherited, Thurman interprets the teachings of Jesus through the experience of the oppressed and discusses nonviolent responses to oppression.

Register for the concluding discussion on March 24 at this link. Questions? Contact Canon Jennifer Daugherty at jkdaugherty@saintmarks.org.

Radix 5: Spring 2021—New Groups Now Forming

with No Comments

Update: a video of the opening plenary plenary is now available.

OPENING PLENARY: SUNDAY, APRIL 25, 7 P.M. via Zoom. 

New Radix Small Groups forming in April—All are welcome to register!

The theme for this six-week series is Centering Women’s Voices, and draws on the inspiring stories of six women from Scripture as they speak their wisdom into our lives today.


OPENING PLENARY: SUNDAY, APRIL 25, 7 P.M. via Zoom. 

GROUPS MEET: STARTING THE WEEK OF APRIL26. Sign up using this link. Deadline to register: April 20.

In January of 2020 the cathedral launched The Radix Project: Small Groups/Deep Roots. Since then more than 250 people have participated in small groups, meeting weekly for six weeks to share their stories, reflect on Holy Scripture and sacred art, and pray for one another with intention. This offering lent itself perfectly to the transition to an online-only offering when the pandemic happened, and this next six-week iteration will also take place via Zoom. New groups are formed for each series, and you are encouraged to sign up whether or not you have participated in the past.

More information is available on the Radix Project webpage, where material from previous iterations of the Radix Project are now posted, and where materials for the upcoming series will be posted as they become available. There is no fee to participate, but pre-registration is required.
