This year’s annual theme is “The Transformational Journey”. We began by looking at origin stories: individually, in the Unity movement, and as Seattle Unity.
During June and July, we will focus on creativity, on Mother Nature as we enjoy returning to our great outdoors, and on our Earth.
Think creatively about prayer, as we the begin participation in the Seattle Peace Project with Troy Reicherter and our praying neighbors and colleagues. Have you got the app yet? If not, go to https://www.hhresearch.org/ and look for the “Seattle Peace Project” link. Nothing less than the reduction of crime in Seattle is the object!
On the nature front, how about a hike? I asked Rev. Karen what her favorite hike was, and she immediately smiled, and said, “the one on Whidbey Island”. As Whidbey’s a big place, I narrowed it down for you: it’s the Fort Ebey State Park one. Here’s the link: http://www.seattletimes.com/life/outdoors/get-a-jump-on-spring-with-3-whidbey-island-walks/.
Back to creativity – our Lovely Librarian, Didi Graves, has a plethora of creative ideas for our time left in our church home. With the Change Team, she’s leading “This is US” , and you can email her at email@example.com, or – look her up in the Library!

This is US will be putting out a LOT of commUnity contributions and information over the year, and we encourage YOU to contribute.
So that you can enjoy it all easily, Annie has created a “This is US” tag for our blog posts.
It’s easy – on the Seattle Unity website, on the top line, click “News”, and on the left, choose the “This is US” category. All the articles in the series will magically appear for you!
Or, you can enter through this link:http://seattleunity.org/category/this-is-us/
Fathers’ Day is coming up – send your Fathers’ Day pix (your dad, you as a dad, you with your dad, or any combination thereof) to Mary at Mary@seattleunity.org for use in the Fathers’ Day Slideshow. If you’d like her to re-use your previous picture, you need to email her and let her know that, too. We don’t automatically re-use pictures, so avoid disappointments and let Mary know in advance!
Service with a smile! Lots of ways to help our commUnity – check with Terry Loving, Volunteer Coordinator (206) 622-8475 x 114 or firstname.lastname@example.org and find your place to joyfully serve!
