UPDATED WITH VIDEO
GUEST SERMON: SUNDAY. SEPTEMBER 24, at the 9 and 11 a.m. services
SPECIAL FORUM: THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 7–8 P.M., Bloedel Hall and online via Zoom
We are honored to welcome back Bishop Ernie Moral of the Episcopal Diocese of the Southern Philippines (EDSP). He will be our guest preacher at both the 9 and 11 a.m. services on Sunday, September 24. (The Diocese of Olympia partnered over 10 years ago with the EDSP to create the Carbon Offset Cooperative Mission, a program that plants native trees in the Southern Philippines with funds received for carbon offsets.)
A few days later, Bishop Moral will present a special Thursday night hybrid forum titled Diversity and Indigenous Spirituality In the Southern Philippines. He will share an overview of the Episcopal Church in the Philippines and EDSP's history, as well as the ways the diocese engages with diversity, specifically in Mindanao. He will also discuss ways EDSP is working to honor indigenous spirituality, linking indigenous practices and belief to the Christian faith. Register to attend via Zoom using this link (no registration needed for in-person attendance).
Finally, Bishop Moral will be speaking on Saturday, September 30 at CONVENE, the Diocese of Olympia’s gathering for workshops and exhibits, which this year is being held in Everett.
