Weaving God’s Wisdom into Daily Life:
A Conference in Two Sessions

St. Andrew, Seattle | January 20, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm | $15 – $45 sliding scale suggested donation

How can we overcome obstacles of the false self and grow spiritually and psychologically in order to weave God’s wisdom into daily life? The “false self” is a collection of programs that worked well in our young lives to help us deal with our family contexts. Unfortunately these programs are not so helpful in situations we encounter as adults. In this daylong conference, we will address the conceptual background of the false self, explore it from various perspectives, and learn about and practice a method that helps to dismantle it.

  • 9:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.: Perspectives on the Self from Mystics and Psychologists (presented by Chris Hyde, Ph.D., psychologist)
  • 1:30 – 4:00 p.m.: Consenting in Everyday Life with the Welcoming Prayer (presented by Cherry Haisten, MA, MATS)

Baltic Centennial: 100 Years of Statehood

Seattle Choral Company at Saint Mark’s Cathedral, Seattle | March 24, 2018, 8:00pm | Tickets: $25 (general), $20 (student/military/veteran), $5 (student), Children 6 to 10 FREE

In 2018 the three Baltic nations of Latvia, Estonia, and Lithuania—home of the “Singing Revolution” —will jointly celebrate their 100th anniversary of statehood and independence.  In the Baltics, singing is cultural and historical. Choral music was vital in developing and maintaining a sense of national identity during many years of occupation, as well as providing a means of creative resistance; and so it retained its central role within the culture.

On March 24, 2018, the Seattle Choral Company, along with six participating area choirs, will salute this centennial with a concert demonstrating the sheer beauty and excellence of choral music from the Baltic countries.
