Intergenerational Hike to Carkeek Park

with No Comments

UPDATED WITH PHOTOS

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 1:30–4 P.M., meet at Carkeek Park trailhead, 6th Ave. NW and NW 100th Pl., rain or shine.

The next intergeneration hike will explore Carkeek Park, near Northgate. After meeting at the trailhead, the group will follow Pipers Creek, which a group of citizen activists have restored as an active salmon run. The the trail passes one of Seattle's early farmsteads, where old apple trees still bear fruit. Some people could walk straight to the beach while others can turn up the South Ridge Trail and lengthen the hike from 1.5 to 2 miles. At the beach there is a wonderful bridge over the railroad tracks and a small but interesting beach to walk on (maybe a train will go by!). The group will find a spot on the beach to gather for singing and prayer and reflection.

If you plan to attend, contact Canon Barrie and she will reply with her cell phone number: wbarrie@saintmarks.org

 


UPDATE: Check out a few photos of the event below, submitted by Nancy Valaas and Betsy Bell. Click to enlarge.

Liturgy & Intersectionality: Appropriation or Appreciation?

with 1 Comment

UPDATED WITH VIDEO

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 9:30 A.M. to 3 P.M., in person in Bloedel Hall or online via Zoom; registration required for either option.

How do we pray and worship in a way that fully reflects the fullness of the Kin-dom of God while also honoring the integrity of identity? How can our liturgies be shaped with appreciation of all people vs. appropriation without true integration? Reconciling liturgical traditions that were shaped from a primarily white viewpoint takes the ability to have open and honest conversations around creativity and change, and requires alliance on the Holy Spirit’s call to be one in Christ.

The Rev. Dr. Hillary Raining is an Episcopal priest, liturgical scholar, educator, and author. She is a citizen of the Sault Ste Marie Band of Chippewa Indians of Michigan. This is her final offering as Saint Mark's 2022 Theologian-in-residence; she has previously led a series of workshops on intergeneration trauma and intergenerational blessing, spiritual practices, and Mary Magdalene and spiritual healing.

Fee $35 (for both online and in-person participants). Includes a light lunch and snacks (scholarships available).

The Paradoxical Friendship of Grief and Joy

with No Comments

UPDATED WITH VIDEO

TWO WEDNESDAYS: OCTOBER 19 & 26, 6:45–8:15 P.M., in person in Bloedel Hall and online via Zoom. Optional community dinner at 6 p.m. ($6/child; $8/adult; $25/max. family).

Facilitated by Canon Jennifer King Daugherty

Grief and joy can seem like opposites—experiences of sadness and loss are profoundly different from those of happiness and delight. Yet, both grief and joy reveal our vulnerability and capacity to love; they both soften our hearts and make us aware of our dependence on God. In this two-week series, Canon Jennifer King Daugherty will explore the paradoxical kinship of grief and joy and how the wisdom and grace we gain from either experience deepens our understanding of the other—and our relationship with God.

This is a Cathedral Commons offering, presented as part of the current season of The Wisdom School at Saint Mark's.

“Jerusalem’s Old City: A Holy Story” with Matthew Teller

with 2 Comments

UPDATED WITH VIDEO

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2022, 7–8:30 p.m., in person in Bloedel Hall or online via Zoom

Jerusalem’s Old City—A Holy Story
A Presentation by BBC Journalist and Author Matthew Teller

Co-sponsored by Saint Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral, The Episcopal Diocese of Olympia, University Book Store, Seattle, and Other Press Publishers, New York

In Jerusalem, what you see and what is true are two different things. The Old City has never had “four quarters” as its maps proclaim. And beyond the crush and frenzy of its major religious sites, many of its quarters are little known to visitors, its people ignored and their stories untold. Nine Quarters of Jerusalem lets the communities of the Old City speak for themselves. Ranging from ancient past to political present, it evokes the city’s depth and cultural diversity.

Matthew Teller’s highly original “biography” features the Old City’s Palestinian and Jewish communities, but also spotlights its Indian and African populations, its Greek and Armenian and Syriac cultures, its downtrodden Dom Gypsy families, and its Sufi mystics. It discusses the sources of Jerusalem’s holiness and the ideas—often startlingly secular—that have shaped lives within its walls. It is an evocation of place through story, led by the voices of Jerusalemites.


UPDATE: A complete video is now available below.


About the Speaker

Matthew Teller writes for the BBC, The Guardian, Times of London, Financial Times and other global media. He has produced and presented documentaries for BBC Radio and has reported for the BBC’s From Our Own Correspondent program from around the Middle East and beyond. He is the author of several travel guides, including The Rough Guide to Jordan. His previous book was Quite Alone: Journalism from the Middle East 2008–2019.

The Return of 20s/30s Sunday Stairway Walks

with No Comments

UPDATED WITH PHOTOS

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 23, 3–5:30 P.M., meet at Trinity Parish on First Hill (registration required)

In the fall of 2021 the 20s/30s Group from Saint Mark's gathered for a series of Sunday urban hikes inspired by the book Seattle Stairway Walks, and incorporating tours of different Episcopal parishes in the area. They were a great chance to connect with our neighbors and siblings in the Diocese of Olympia, and to discover new nooks and crannies of Seattle's urban landscape.

On October 23 this popular offering will return, with a tour of the "mother church" of the Diocese of Olympia, Trinity Parish on First Hill. The group will begin with a brief presentation and tour from Dr. Lisa Graumlich, deacon-in-training, and then wind our way up and around to explore the architectural details of the rapidly-transforming Seattle waterfront and downtown, finishing up with refreshments back at Trinity. Questions? Email Emily Meeks (emcmeeks@gmail.com)


UPDATE—Here are some photos from the event (click to enlarge): 

 


About the Stairway Walks

Did you know that Seattle has 650 publicly accessible stairways? In the early 1900s, property developers in hilly Seattle would construct public stairways for convenience and to improve access to trolley lines. Now, these scenic passageways provide opportunities to discover off-the-path views through Seattle neighborhoods.

Join with other young adults from around the Diocese of Olympia to explore and learn about different neighborhoods and Episcopal parishes within Seattle. Routes will draw inspiration from Seattle Stairway Walks and range between 2.5–4 miles at an easy pace. The walks start and end at the parish, with an opportunity to connect with clergy and other participants. We’ll also have an opportunity to learn more about the parish, meet clergy and enjoy refreshments after the walk. 

WHAT TO BRING:

  • Comfortable shoes
  • Water 
  • Sun glasses/sun screen
  • Masks for when entering a parish
