Shoreline Service Project at Food Lifeline: July 21Last Updated on 2015-07-05 02:33:47The SUUC Social Action Ministry monthly volunteer night at Food Lifeline is on July 21, starting at 6:00 p.m. You can show up on that Tuesday night without having signed in at Food Lifeline. You can just sign up that night. Children will need a parental permission form signed then.
Summer is a great time to bring your children to Food Lifeline (at or above the age of 6) because they don't have school the next day. We are done with the project by 8 p.m. or sooner, so there is plenty of time for young folks to get their sleep.
July Date: Tuesday July 21, 2015. The project begins promptly at 6 p.m. and ends at 8. (Please don't arrive after 6:05 because the doors lock and we won't be able to hear you knock.) Everyone welcome, please remember to wear closed-toe shoes.
Address: Food Lifeline is at 1702 NE 150th Street (near the former Fircrest School area). Turn east... More »

Countering Hatred's Fire with the Power of LoveLast Updated on 2015-07-03 17:13:18Dear Friends,
It's too hot, I said to a colleague two weeks ago.
They thought I meant the weather, but I was actually referring to the social climate. In June, we saw brutal attacks on black teenage girls at swimming pools in McKinney, Texas. Then came the horrific shootings of adult Bible students at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina, that left nine people dead, including Rev. Clementa Pinckney, a pastor, state legislator and activist. I went online to look up "Charleston shooting," and what popped up first was the previous murderous attack when Walter Scott, a black man, was shot in the back fleeing from white police officer Michael Slager. That was in April.
Very hot indeed. At the time of the Emanuel massacre, it wasn't even officially summer yet.
How much hotter could it get?
We are finding out. Since the massacre, several black churches have... More »
2015 Totem Pole JourneyLast Updated on 2015-07-03 02:52:05This past weekend, many of us were privileged to bear Witness to Lummi Nation's story, its struggles and its wisdom. Lummi Council Member Jay Julius and Lummi Elder Jewell James and his daughter Shamania all asked us to take a stand and to move with a purpose no matter how small.
As part of GA's Public Witness event, there are several opportunities to support Lummi Nation. They can be found here.
One of the actions is supporting this year's Totem Pole Journey:
Each year for the past two years, tribal members, led by Master Carver Jewell James of the Lummi Nation’s House of Tears Carvers, have carved and transported totem poles thousands of miles to raise public awareness and strengthen opposition to the export of fossil fuels from the west coast of the United States and Canada. Working in close association with other tribal governments, environmental organizations... More »
