Seattle District Laity Uprising 2

One common ministry of the Seattle District is some form of care for the homeless.  So, on September 17th we’ll have an opportunity to experience a Poverty Simulation led by Lisa Gustafson of Seattle University, afterwards we will meet, have lunch, and work together to form a District strategic response to the crisis of homelessness in King County.

Although clergy are not required to attend it is strongly encouraged for clergy to come and/or to send a team. After all, every District church has some form of ministry with the homeless. For clergy that do attend, CE credit is available.
