Theologian-in-Residence for 2022: The Rev. Dr. Hillary Raining

with 2 Comments

A MESSAGE FROM DEAN THOMASON

Dear friends,

It is my delight to share the news that The Rev. Dr. Hillary Raining will serve as Saint Mark’s Theologian-in-Residence for the coming year. In this role, Dr. Raining will bring her manifold gifts and considerable experience as she engages the cathedral community at periodic intervals as theologian, priest, preacher, teacher, and ministry consultant. We look forward to her presence among us, which will be virtual initially, with travel to Seattle coming later this year. Dr. Raining writes:

“I am thrilled to journey with the cathedral this year! I believe that the Holy Spirit will speak to us during this time of fellowship, theology, and experience. ”

Dr. Raining serves in several roles as a leader in the Church: she is rector of St. Christopher Episcopal Church in Gladwyne, Pennsylvania (the first woman to rector a 500-member parish in the suburbs of Philadelphia); she is the Founding Director of the Doctor of Ministry program at the General Theological Seminary in New York City; she has served as a deputy to several General Conventions of the Episcopal Church; she serves on the Presiding Bishop’s Task Force for the Way of Love; and she serves as mentor, coach and spiritual advisor to several people seeking ordination. She is a member of the Sault Ste Marie Tribe of Chippewa Native Americans, and she recently published an article in Anglican Theological Review on “blood memory and gratitude as a multi-lineage spiritual practice.” She is also a founder of The Hive, a home for wellness, spirituality and growth.

Dr. Raining earned her Doctor of Ministry from Drew University (2014), her Master of Divinity from Yale University (2007), and Bachelor of Arts in Religion and Psychology from Moravian University (2005). Read more about Hillary, her background, writings, reflections and publications on her website.

Dr. Raining is scheduled to offer a two-week series in March for Cathedral Commons on “blood memory and our spiritual inheritance.” We will share more on that in the coming weeks.

I look forward to Hillary engaging our community at regular intervals in the course of next year, and I hope you will join me in welcoming her. I am,

Gratefully yours,

The Very Reverend Steven L. Thomason, Dean & Rector

Following Jesus to a New Counter-Cultural, Post-Pandemic Normal

with 2 Comments

UPDATED WITH VIDEO

SATURDAY, JANUARY 15, 2022, 9:30 A.M.–3 P.M., in person in Bloedel Hall OR online via Zoom

A Saturday gathering led by Bishop Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows

The year 2022 is already being called “the year of all things,” as the world attempts to catch up on two years of pandemic postponements. But Jesus, ever attentive to the present moment, calls us to liberation from the tyranny of being overcommitted and offers us the invitation to rest, heal, and be well. This workshop will explore the resources of our faith tradition for grounded and connected life and ministry for all of God’s people.

Besides Saturday's Wisdom School forum, the visit to Saint Mark's of the Bishop of Indianapolis, The Rt. Rev. Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows, also included a workshop for clergy, Sunday morning preaching, and a "Friends Talking" Sunday Forum in Bloedel Hall.

UPDATE: Watch the Video of Bishop Baskerville-Burrows' Wisdom School Forum below.

Sanctuary Update and Rally | December 20, 2021

Sanctuary Update and Rally | December 20, 2021 

Today we were able to share the good news that Jaime’s case has been reopened, which means he will have his day in court to consider whether he might be granted a path to remain in this country with his family. This is a step toward a just outcome, and while the legal proceedings will unfold over the next several months, and may take more than a year, this action allows Jaime to apply for a work permit (which he has done), and to be relieved of the immediate risk of deportation.

PRESS CONFERENCE AND RALLEY: MONDAY, DECEMBER 20, 12 P.M.


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Saint Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral’s Guest in Sanctuary to Announce an Important Development in the Struggle to Avoid the Separation of His Family

December 16, 2020

SEATTLE, WA—In March of 2019, Jaime Rubio Sulficio, a husband, father, business owner, and community leader facing an imminent, unjust deportation to Mexico, was received into Sanctuary at Saint Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral in Seattle. For the following two years and eight months, he has continually sought a legal remedy that would allow him to stay in the United States and avoid separation from his wife and son, who are both American citizens.

Saint Mark’s Cathedral and the Church Council of Greater Seattle are now happy to announce that Jaime and his family have received news of some positive developments in his case. Legal hurdles remain, and he and his wife Keiko continue to work closely with his attorney and with the Sanctuary Network, a coalition of faith communities working together to accompany immigrants in situations like his.

Details of this significant development will be announced and celebrated at Saint Mark’s Cathedral on Monday, December 20, 2021, at 12 p.m. Members of the press, people of faith, and all with an interest in Jaime’s case and in immigration policy are encouraged to attend. (Masks must be worn by all while inside the cathedral building.) The event will also be livestreamed on the cathedral’s website, and may be seen on this page or on saintmarks.org/livestream

The tradition of Sanctuary in houses of worship has deep biblical and historical roots. For centuries, churches and other religious spaces have served as places of welcome, hospitality, and moral protection for people who fear harm or violence towards them. Saint Mark’s Cathedral and the Church Council of Greater Seattle will continue to work, through prayer and action, towards a just, equitable, and compassionate immigration policy in this country.

About Saint Mark’s: Saint Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral strives to be a house of prayer for all people, where we worship God and proclaim the reconciling Gospel of Jesus Christ; a loving, welcoming, inclusive community that nurtures faith, encourages service, and integrates social and environmental justice into our lives; a sacred gathering place for the Diocese of Olympia and the broader community in times of crisis, sorrow, and celebration.

About the Church Council of Greater Seattle: The Church Council of Greater Seattle builds collective power through faith-rooted community organizing for transformational change toward liberation and justice.  We envision a future when justice is realized, where all people experience liberation, profound peace, expansive equity, and joy-filled human flourishing. www.thechurchcouncil.org

The 2021 Giving Tree

GIVING UPDATE:

From online donations to the Giving Tree for Casa Latina and Lowell Elementary,  $5,180 was raised to purchase Target gift cards in $50 or $25 increments. In combination with gift tags that were purchased directly by parishioners, we reached the requests of 100 gift cards for Casa Latina and 75 gift cards for Lowell Elementary.

Additionally, Mary's Place received about 100 gifts from Saint Mark's parishioners.

 

Once again, Saint Mark’s is sharing Christmas joy with families from Casa LatinaLowell Elementary School, and Mary’s Place. Casa Latina and Lowell Elementary School have asked for gift cards this year, and Mary’s Place has requested specific gifts for children, youth, and parents.

The Giving Tree is full of tags, and will be placed in the nave for the next three Sundays. For Casa Latina and Lowell Elementary, pick a tag off the Giving Tree, or donate online at saintmarks.org/give (Choose "Casa Latina & Lowell School Gift Cards" from the list of options.)

For Mary’s Place, visit their Amazon Wish List here, or come by and choose a tag from the Giving Tree.

In this second year of hardship, your generosity means even more to these wonderful families. Please donate online or bring your (unwrapped) gift(s) or gift card(s) back to Saint Mark’s by Sunday, December 12.
