Lent 2014: “In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts”

This Lent we will be exploring the realm of Addiction, in an effort to further understand this powerful reality in our neighborhood and in our own lives, and with a desire to foster connection among those in our community and to create more pathways between Awake and Aurora Avenue.  Our collective Lenten experience will include study and discussion of In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts by Dr. Gabor Mate, a different format for our Sunday gatherings, creative opportunities for learning and reflection along Aurora Avenue, and an invitation to experiment with postures of fasting/sobriety.  It will be bookended by activities that will call forth our creativity - the first ever "Fat Sunday" Parade and Feast on March 2, and our Easter Sunday celebration on April 20.  Stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks!

Sun. 2/2: No Worship Gathering

There will be no worship gathering this Sunday at the Zion building.  Instead, everyone is invited to the Aurora Commons to watch the Super Bowl, starring our city’s own Seattle Seahawks.  Doors will open at 3:00pm; game starts at 3:30pm.

Please bring a snack to share.
