This reception is open to the public, and will provide an easy way to connect with others in the Seattle area who are looking for job openings or have positions to fill. This cash bar reception.

I went to this event last year, it was really neat to see many faiths come together to worship, definitely check it out:

“All My Relations” A Celebration of Gratitude at Thanksgiving Interfaith Worship Celebration Sunday, November 23rd 2:30 – 4:00 PM Location: St Patrick Church 2702 Broadway Avenue East Seattle, WA 98102 This is an interfaith/InterSpiritual event that embraces indigenous wisdom and traditions. We are looking forward to learning lessons through stories shared by eight celebrants from different faith and spiritual communities. They and a musical group brought together for this event will engage us with lovely songs and insights that address the story lines for the gratitude service: We Are All People of the Earth We Are All Related We Are All Wounded We Will All Heal Together. This is a family-friendly celebration. Please select and bring an item (non-returnable) from the earth that represents something meaningful for which you are grateful. These items will be placed in a community basket that will have a special role in our celebration. NICO, a founding member of the Compassionate Action Network, is sponsoring this InterSpiritual gathering, which is a co-creation of many individuals, spiritual communities and interfaith organizations. It honors and preserves a 22 year tradition in our region. Check out the flyer: For more information, contact: John Hale -; 425.865.0659
