Center For Spiritual Living presents conversations about diversity and honoring diverse identities

Since its beginning in 1921, the Center for Spiritual Living Seattle has been a “welcoming, inclusive community, honoring all paths to the Divine, teaching universal spiritual principles and practices that inspire and empower.”

Having recently relocated from their longtime Sand Point home to 6318 Linden Ave N near Green Lake, they have created a monthly conversation series with Rev. Abigail Schairer, Stephanie Anne Johnson, and a special guest held on Wednesdays April through July. You can see the entire schedule here.

“While most of us would rather not talk about race, gender, sexuality, and size in spiritual spaces, it is necessary. Why? Because every single one of us is living this life in a body. Our skin color, size, sexuality, and gender impact how we move through the world, including spiritual spaces,” relayed Rev. Andrea Weatherhead, Staff Minister and Marketing and Communications Strategist at CSL.

The first conversation is tomorrow, Wednesday, April 19th from 12pm-1pm on Center for Spiritual Living Seattle’s Facebook Page. This month’s guest is Rev. Dr. Kelle J Brown, Senior Pastor at Plymouth Church United Church of Christ in Seattle. She is a vocal presence for justice in Seattle and beyond. Kelle is a Theomusicologist of the Poor People’s Campaign and invites those she meets to follow Howard Thurman’s sage wisdom: “Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.
