Special Parish Forum—Statement of Lament and Commitment to Action

with No Comments

UPDATED WITH VIDEO

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 6:30-8 P.M.

Hybrid gathering: in Bloedel Hall and via Zoom (registration requested for either option so we can plan accordingly)

Earlier this year the Vestry unanimously adopted the Statement of Lament and Commitment to Action as a guide for our important work as individuals and community as we strive for justice and peace and respect for every human being. It is a substantial document with a broad range of statements leading to actionable ways we are called to live and act in the world. In the special parish forum, to which all are invited and encouraged to attend, we will reflect together, unpack the document, and break into groups which will focus on specific areas of work including:

    1. Addressing Homeless and Hunger in Seattle,
    2. Cathedral innovations for Reparations,
    3. Racial Justice and Healing,
    4. Global Justice ministries,
    5. Immigration Ministries,
    6. Networking with Affiliate Partners in Ministry.
