A Study of Islam
Convocation: a Church and Ministry is offering a weekly Sunday night gathering in Seattle with a focus on learning about the Islamic faith. This is an organized social response to the times we are in, offered by the members of Convocation, an interfaith organization and a part of the Goodenough Community. We believe that becoming more knowledgeable about this great world religion will help us extend informed support and counter unkindness.
Come join the circle on Sunday evenings at 7pm, in Seattle. For more information, please contact Colette Hoff, M.Ed. While we started our study in January, newcomers are welcome to join the conversation.
Our ecoVillage project is growing into its permaculture inspired vision.
Contact Irene Perler for more information.
