Preemptive Radical Inclusion

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

CB will share reflections on the idea of Preemptive Radical Inclusion as an entryway to meaningfully increase equity and justice among ourselves and in the world, a way to embody beloved community by our willingness to take seriously the idea that “all of us means all of us.”

Love is Our Covenant

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

We yearn to love and be loved. When we act with lovingkindness, we align ourselves with the loving power of the universe and each other. When we embrace our neighbors and all creation with love and compassion, we unlock the power of covenant and unconditional love. All ages service & Uluhan family Child Dedication.

The World Upside Down

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

Join us as we celebrate Mardi Gras and Purim. Together, we'll reflect upon the power of reversals. Nothing has the power to change us, confront us with reality, open our ears to a new truth, or turn our life in a different direction like a reversal can; a time when our world is turned upside down.

Honoring Our Lay Pastoral Ministry Team

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

Pastoral care is a ministry of presence. People have stories of grief, trauma, loss, confusion, loneliness and depression. There is healing value in speaking these stories out loud when there is a compassionate person to listen with attention, and with the intention to bear witness. Our lay pastoral ministers will listen without judging, offering advice, or trying to fix anything. Having someone tuned in and able to be with you while you sort through your feelings allows you to tap into your own deep wisdom and capacity to heal.
