Film: A BOLD PEACE: COSTA RICA'S PATH OF DEMILITARIZATION

(89 minutes; Matthew Eddy and Michael Dreiling, 2016)
Friday, Jan. 5; Doors open at 6:30pm; Movie starts at 7:00pm

@ Keystone UCC (downstairs in Battson Hall)


Almost 70 years ago Costa Rica abolished its army and committed itself to fostering a peaceful society. “A Bold Peace” juxtaposes the national policy of demilitarization with their investment in education, health, and the environment. It has been reaping the benefits ever since.

“This film is very timely. . . There’s a lot of confusion in our world right now, and `A Bold Peace’ offers a unique perspective. The film shows that there is another way. I think it will be eye opening for people who think that we need to bolster the military in order to stand our ground, whereas Costa Rica has shown that the military is not always the answer.” – Erika Floriani, Director of Oldcastle Theatre Company in The Bennington Banner (Vermont), May 3, 2017.

Sponsors: This film was funded by the Peace Research Grant Program of the International Peace Research Association Foundation, and grants from the Jubitz Family Foundation and the Jane Addams Peace Association, among many other contributors.
 
** All events are Open to the Public. Admission is by Donation **

We help communities organize, educate, advocate & build community around social justice documentary film and conversation.

To Hunter P-S who led the Friday Dec. 1 Meaningful Movies showing of ‘The Trans List.’

To the many who fed the folks at Sacred Heart Shelter on Dec. 2.
Dear Faith Partners,

We're So Close - Initiative 940
Many of you have been working tirelessly gathering signatures for Initiative 940. As we approach the deadline, we need your help. There are only a few weeks left to move the initiative forward. The campaign has indicated that 89,000 more signatures are needed with 21,000 of those coming from volunteers. What if faith communities across Washington State could help fill this void? Together we can make one last push to ensure that 940 makes it to the legislature.

King County: don't miss an opportunity to rally with the campaign and supporters of the initiative this Sunday, December 10th at 1PM. A rally will begin at Cal Anderson Park, and we want the faith community to have a strong presence there. A flyer for the event is attached. Please spread the word and share the flyer with others. If you've run out of petitions or need more, please let the FAN staff know. For additional information about the initiative please see the attached one pager. If you have any additional questions feel free to contact Sophia Nicholson Keener, sophia@deescalatewa.org.

The King County Immigration Ordinance
If you live in King County, please urge your Council Member to support immigrant rights! This ordinance will ensure that King County's limited resources are not used to support a federal deportation agenda. Let's ensure that local law enforcement is not taking part in enforcing the federal immigration system. When these lines are blurred, noncitizens are less likely to report crime or appear as witnesses, making us all less safe. Let's make King County a leader in protecting the safety and civil rights of everyone. Urge the Council to pass the immigration ordinance.
Thank you all for your incredible advocacy. 
Best, 
Amber Dickson
Faith Action Network | Statewide Organizer

Holden Prayer @ Keystone

Elliot Kraber, Music Coordinator
Yigit Kolat/Kate Froese, Accompanist
w/Rev. Rich Gamble and Rev. Lauren Cannon


Mark your calendars to enjoy December contemplative evening worship services at Keystone UCC.

Holden Prayer is 30-minute candlelit evening service with lots of singing, scripture and reflective time! Come as you are, for some peaceful contemplation after your day.

Wednesday, December 6, 7-7:30 PM
Wednesday, December 13, 7-7:30 PM
Tuesday, December 20, 7-7:30 PM
Holden Prayer is brief evening candlelit service with lots of singing, scripture, and reflective time.  Come as you are, for some peaceful contemplation, at the end of your day.

Holden Village is a Lutheran (and quite welcoming of all) retreat center in the Cascades that started this lovely prayer service.  Many of the hymns we sing in Sunday worship (green Gather hymnal) were written by Marty Haugen who once took a sabbatical in the Holden Village in 1986.  He composed Holden Evening Prayer  while he was there.  Its a vespers (evening) service, that is now done in many places for simple contemplative worship.  About ten years, two Keystone year-long volunteers, Melissa and Eric, were serving as young-adult interns at Keystone, and they brought us this practice.

Come for some shelter in what is an all too busy season of much scurrying.  Come breathe deeply with others at Keystone for any and all of these Wednesday evenings.  Bring a friend!  All ages welcome!
For more info, contact Pastor Lauren Cannon at Keystone UCC: (206) 632-6021 or at lauren.cannon@keystoneseattle.org

BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE ...

Following Holden Prayer, Seattle Dances of Universal Peace invites all up to their WednesdayDances, 7:30 pm in the Learning Center. And December 20 is a special extended Dance: The Lords Prayer in Aramaic, 7-9:30pm. All are welcome!

Mediators Nora and Jim - friends of Keystone- are offering three free Discussion Circles in prep for holidays -- check these out!

 
 
Review: 'The Trans List' at Meaningful Movies, led by JLP Intern Hunter Paulson-Smith
 

On Friday, Dec. 1, Meaningful Movies held a screening of 'The Trans List,' a film by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders. The night was a huge success! Above is a picture of Hunter Paulson-Smith, E West, and Nathan Townley, the three panelists who led the discussion after the film.

If you missed the film or are curious about learning more about trans and non-binary identities, here are some links to some articles and resources to learn more:
