From Lindsay Rogers:

This Sunday is going to be extra cool.  We’ll start JRUU in P1/B for a lesson/activity on Catholicism and then leave for the noon service at St James Cathedral in Seattle.  We have a tour at 1:15 and I hope to be back around 2-2:15pm.

I’ll plan to bring snacks for the road but feel free to pack a lunch too if you want something more hearty.

Please let me know if you need to make any special arrangements (I realize this is longer than our usual meeting time).  Otherwise, let your parents know you’ll need a pick up about 2-2:15pm at WUUC.

Sr. Youth

RJW: First Wednesday

Mutuality Movement with Rev. Jamil 

We are beginning to do the work of solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, the work on privilege, and some direct action work. However, what is the spiritual bases of our solidarity work with Black people in America?High Res Branding

In a research fellowship with Meadville Theological School’s Fahs Collaborative, Rev. Jamil researched the usefulness of contemplative methods in developing empathy and a sense of solidarity with others. ( He proposed the development if multi-faith, multi-generational communities of spiritual practice that can answer calls to social action mindfully, compassionately, and lovingly. He has since coined the term “sympathetic contemplative practice,” as spiritual practice done in solidarity with the marginalized population one is serving.

Believing in the power of sympathetic contemplative practice to develop solidarity with marginalized populations, Rev. Jamil will guide us through the practices of the Contemplative Black Spiritual Tradition including attentional-awareness practices, tarrying or waiting, call and response, and more.

Weekly: Every FIRST Wednesday from 7:00-8:30 PM in the Sanctuary starting October 5th. Interested, visit the Soulful Exploration Information table Sunday morning and let us know.
