Finding Peace at Challenging Times Friday, September 9, 7 PM, Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Whidbey Island
20103 State Route 525, Freeland, WA
How do we find a kind of peace within ourselves that can extend beyond moments of quiet contemplation or meditation? How can we form an intentional peace community right here and right now? And what is peace anyway? How would we know if if we saw it? How would we embrace it within ourselves and others?
On Faith and Future – An Interfaith Event Sunday, September 11, 2 PM, Unity in Lynnwood 16727 Alderwood Mall Parkway, Lynnwood, WA 98037
Join Rev. Cathy Chalmers, Rabbi Ted Falcon, Dr. Richard Loren Held, Abbot Genjo Marinello and Imam Jamal Rahman — supported by Music Director Matthew Wilson — in a conversation about human religious systems and their roles in our evolving world.
The anger and violence of our world are the consequences of forgetting the fuller nature of our Being. When we collapse into our separate selves, each of us striving to protect what is ours, each suspicious and watchful and fearful, we are vulnerable to prejudice, to programmed hatred, to demonizing and dehumanizing the other.
