Watershed Consciousness

East Shore Unitarian Church 12700 SE 32nd Street, Bellevue, WA

Rev Dr. Furrer shares the particulars of his personal mediation practice, walking the length and contours of his watershed, in this case Madsen Creek. As water rolls off Steve and Carol's roof, it follows a gravity-drawn course from their yard to the Cedar River and thence to the Sound. Notes on Henry David Thoreau, Wendell Barry, Annie Dillard, and the spirituality of place: this place.

OWL Facilitator Training

East Shore Unitarian Church 12700 SE 32nd Street, Bellevue, WA

OWL empowers adults and children across the lifespan to learn about their bodies, sexuality, and genders. I am looking for 15 adults to get trained in OWL to facilitate next year's programs. There are new editions of K-2 curricula and 10-12 curricula, so even if you've trained before, it's time to re-engage. Congregants not signing up for the training are invited to host a meal at the church or to host a participant from the program with a home stay.
