The Philadelphia Eleven Documentary
An important feature documentary film is in production! Tentatively titled, “The Philadelphia Eleven,” the film will tell the story of the women who were ordained Episcopal priests in 1974 against church rules. They hit a chord in a deeply divided world about who speaks the word of God. The media caught on, and each woman had to decide how to live out her priesthood in the public limelight. This is a story of women faith leaders inspiring us all. The project is on Kickstarter until June 20.

Adoration, Awe, and Service – A Pathways of Grace Workshop
Queen Anne, Seattle | June 15, 9:30am-12:30pm; Register by June 5 | $15 Materials Fee; Limit of 5 participants
We’ll reflect on Evelyn Underhill’s understanding of our three duties – adoration, awe and service – and explore how that applies in our own lives. How our service is transformed by awe and adoration. Rabbi Heschel understood Psalm 111:10 to say, “the awe of God is the beginning of wisdom.” This is wisdom grounded in being overwhelmed, confused, enchanted, afraid, fully alive, and living within a grand mystery. Adoration is giving ourselves to the joy of being in the Presence of God. Wisdom and joy making us new and purifying our service.
How have we each experienced these things? How has it changed us? How might we open ourselves to awe and adoration?
Sponsored by the Order of the Ascension, an Episcopal Religious Community.
