Fierce Vulnerability @ Seabeck, WA
Jun 28 – Jul 1 all-day
Fierce Vulnerability @ Seabeck, WA

The 61st Annual Fellowship of Reconciliation NW Regional Conference at Seabeck, WA. This year the East Point Peace Academy & Western Washington Fellowship of Reconciliation present “Fierce Vulnerability: Direct Action that Heals and Transforms.”

Fierce Vulnerability is born of the conviction that our vulnerability is our greatest strength. Vulnerability makes us whole, and that wholeness is the only thing that can undo generations of investment in plunder and exploitation. Come explore together what it might look like to enter into movement spaces with the courage to be our whole selves, sometimes courageous, sometimes fearful, sometimes clear, sometimes confused, sometimes joyous, sometimes grieving, often a mixture of all of these.

Interfaith 4th of July Parade & BBQ @ IMAN Center
Jul 4 @ 2:00 pm

Fostering Interfaith Relationships on the Eastside (FIRE) invites you to join them in walking in the Kirkland 4th of July Parade and then for a BBQ lunch.

Parade: 
Participants are encouraged to wear clothing typical for their faith to help show the diversity of faiths participating in the group, T-shirts promoting peace and understanding, or other clothing of their choice. Those walking should wear sensible shoes; hats and sunscreen are advised. Participants are welcome to carry signs and banners promoting peace, love, unity, and understanding.

The parade starts at Noon. It follows a route through Marina Park and around the downtown core, a total walking distance of about one mile. Participants are asked to line up at the designated point in the Market neighborhood north of Heritage Park by 11AM. The position in the parade and the exact location at which the FIRE group will assemble will be assigned around July 1, posted here, and emailed to FIRE email lists and all who RSVP.

Those interested in participating in the parade should email RSVP@fire-wa.org. Information on the group’s position in the parade, assembly point, and recommended parking locations will be sent before the parade date. For more information on the parade including the route, visit http://celebratekirkland.org/parade.htm. For further information, email info@fire-wa.org or contact Toby at 206-790-6377.

BBQ:

After the Celebrate Kirkland 4th of July Parade (about 2PM), join us at IMAN Center, 515 State Street, Kirkland, for a delicious BBQ lunch. We’ll have hamburgers (with halal beef), hot dogs, veggie burgers, and accompaniments. You’re welcome to walk in the parade, or have lunch with us, or both! There’s no cost for lunch, but donations are welcome. You can make a donation in any amount online if you like, or at the BBQ. PLEASE RSVP by Sunday, June 30 if you plan to eat, so we have enough food. Go to this link to RSVP or donate: http://tinyurl.com/Kirkland4thBBQ. If you have questions, please email info@fire-wa.org.
