This Sunday, October 26, we are holding our annual “State of the Communion” meeting at 4:45pm at the Greenwood Senior Center, located at 525 N 85th St. Guests, you are welcome to join us, but be aware that this is a space where we are addressing lots of in-house matters (aka, it’s a “congregational meeting”).
We’ll be at the Greenwood Senior Center on the 12th and 19th, but on October 26, we will begin our new rhythm of meeting in small gathering communities in homes and spaces throughout the neighborhood on the fourth Sunday of every month (Oct 26, Nov 23, Dec 28, Jan 25, Feb 22, Mar 22, Apr 26, May 24).

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!
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.
