with 6 Comments

UPDATE!

The First Hybrid Third Act-ers Potluck Brunch 

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 12:30–2 P.M., in Leffler House or online via Zoom

The first Third Act-ers Retirees Group Potluck Brunch will be this Sunday, February 25, 12:30–2 p.m. in Leffler House as well as on Zoom. In addition to sharing food and conversation, there will also be an invitation to share ideas about what activities and gatherings the group could plan going forward. Contact Kathy Minsch (kminsch@gmail.com) and/or Elizabeth Clark-Stern (ecstern@yahoo.com) with any questions. Please bring food to share if in person. For those online, join using this Zoom link.


FIRST MEETING: TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 3–4:30 P.M., online via Zoom

Saint Mark’s retiree group, the “Third Acters,” is for people approaching retirement, or those already retired who are seeking support, knowledge, and a joyful community for the “Third Act,” of our journey on Earth. Linzi Stahlecker will join us on Zoom the second Tuesday of every month, 3-4:30 p.m. The first meeting on Tuesday, November 14 will be an Open House for everyone to share or observe.

A guidebook for our journey will be Richard Rohr’s Falling Upward, which challenges the prevailing cultural myths about aging. He writes, “Get ready for a great adventure, the one you were born for, some new freedom, some dangerous permission, some radical grace.” All are welcome! To get the Zoom link to join, contact Kathy Minsch (kminsch@gmail.com) or Elizabeth Clark-Stern (ecstern@yahoo.com)


UPDATE: There will be no meeting in December 2023. 

Subsequent meetings are planned for the second Tuesday of each month.

 

Creation Care Stories, Volume 3

with No Comments
The Creation Care Ministry has created a Story Sharing Project to allow parishioners to share actions they are taking related to Creation Care, as a way for parishioners to share their good work and to encourage others to help reduce climate change. Stories can be about any action you are taking, large or small, to care for creation and mitigate climate change. Stories can take the form of a brief written essay, a video, a photo album, an infographic, or a piece of podcast-style audio. Sharing these stories can help others to learn, lead to new ideas about what to do, and be an inspiration for others to take action too. See guidelines to submit your own story here, or share a response or idea by simply using the "reply" box below! 

Check out previous submissions to the Story Sharing Project!

There are multiple levels of engagement that you can sign up for based on your capacity or desire to dive into fellowship with another member of the 20s/30s group during this season. Please sign up using this form by February 14 (Ash Wednesday).

Sunday Forum on Spiritual Practices

"Being rooted in spiritual practices" is a theme that the Strategic Planning Committee recently shared from outreach learnings. This is a great opportunity to try a new spiritual practice during the season of Lent.

2024 Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper with Closing of the Doors

with No Comments

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 6–7:15 P.M., in the cathedral nave. Suggested donation: $6/child; $8/adult; $25/max. family.

Please gather in the cathedral nave on Shrove Tuesday (a.k.a. Mardi Gras), February 21, to end the season after Epiphany in the traditional way—by gathering in community, eating pancakes, and having fun! There will be live music, crafts, and games. Chef Marc Aubertin and the youth will be preparing our meal, and the members of the Seattle Service Corps will be decorating and assisting in the celebration.

The celebration in the nave will conclude with a brief liturgy to bury the Alleluias and close the great doors until Easter. (This is a treasured tradition unique to Saint Mark's—see some views of what the Closing of the Doors looked in years past below.) Finally, on the patio, palms are burned to create the ashes for the Ash Wednesday services the next day.

“Collective Impact” with Andrew Himes

with No Comments

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 7–8:30 P.M., in person in Cathedral House Room 210 or online via Zoom

The monthly meeting of the Creation Care Ministry in February will include a presentation from Andrew Himes, Director of Collective Impact for the Carbon Leadership Forum (CLF) at the University of Washington. Andrew was previously a long-time Saint Mark’s parishioner and former member of the Vestry. Andrew will share the CLF’s work building a global movement to decarbonize the building industry—the largest industry on the planet—and the impact of building materials and construction on climate change. Andrew asserts that, rooted in justice and compassion, working together to solve the climate crisis gives us the opportunity “to regain a sense of our shared humanity.”

Please plan to participate in this informative and inspiring presentation, with time for Q&A afterwards. Join via Zoom, or gather in person in CH210 where we will have time for snacks and visiting before/after the meeting.


A video and list of resources will be posted here when they are available.
