What a blessing the weekend was! Thank you for joining us on Friday to be inspired by Quaker musician Carrie Newcomer, and on Saturday for fellowship, learning from each other, and celebration at the Weaving Our Strengths Conference.

Over 200 people from at least 60 congregations, 15 faith traditions, and 22 cities gathered with us on Saturday for a transformative day of learning, sharing, and fellowship.

Congratulations to the 2015 Gertrude Apel Pioneering Spirit Awardees: Killian Noe and St. Matthew / San Mateo Episcopal Church. Read about their ministries here.

Stay tuned for an announcement of next year's date and location.
























Lamentation and Call to Commitment

The Church Council of Greater Seattle shares our deep sorrow with the family and friends of the victims of the horrific shooting tragedy yesterday at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon. Taking the lives of these members of the college community was an act of senseless violence that violates our common humanity.

Every life is precious in God's eyes. Each person has an inviolable human dignity as a child of the Creator. The lives of all who were shot by the perpetrator are unique, God-given and have ultimate value. We pray for all impacted by this terrible event, for the Roseburg community, for the victims who died and for those who are being cared for at local hospitals.

Whether Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Sikh, Muslim, Hindu, Unitarian, of any spiritual practice, Agnostic, Atheist, we are first and foremost human beings. Targeting people on the real or perceived basis of religion, race, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, or gender identity is an affront to us all and must be confronted. Certainly, these forms of violence made more possible by the idolatrous adiction of our society to unfettered access to guns must be challenged by people of faith and good will.
