Time for a Miracle: Meeting the Light of Chanukkah

with Rabbi Ted and musician Steve Mason
at Unity in Lynnwood and Unity of Whidbey

During the darkest times of our year, we bring light to our outer world through the eight days of increasing candlelight. Behind this outer ritual is the inner work of affirming Light, even when we are caught in the most challenging of times. This year, Chanukkah starts on the evening of December 2, and concludes the evening of December 9.

Blues Vespers

with musicians Tim Sherman and Kim Field and the PNW Interfaith Amigos
5 PM, Sunday, December 16, Interfaith Community Sanctuary

1763 NW 62nd Street, Seattle
Tim is a three time recipient of the Washington Blues Society award for best blues guitarist. Kim is a nationally known harmonica player and author of Harmonicas, Harps and Heavy Breathers: The Evolution of the People's Instrument.
As this Vespers is a week a way from the shortest day of the year — and we live in a time when people long for light physically and in a deeper sense — the Pacific Northwest Interfaith Amigos, Imam Jamal Rahman, Rabbi Ted Falcon and Pastor Dave Brown, will share about “Learning to See in the Dark," through poetry and self-reflection.

The only sinful act?

Our self-condemnation may be the most challenging thing we need to transcend. There are those who see self-condemnation as the only sinful act, since that self-hatred will be projected into our world: we will turn that hatred outward and demonize the other.
