Before I get into upcoming events, I want to let everyone know about this interfaith rally to Approve Referendum 71 last weekend at the West Seattle Farmer’s Market.  The Approve 71 campaign has TONS of support from religious leaders, congregations and organizations.  Don’t let the opposition get away with pretending they are the voice of the religious community in Washington state.  They are not.  People of faith, Lift every voice and sing.  And don’t forget to hold a sign while doing so. 🙂

Bellevue Public Interfaith Witness for Referenum 71

Sunday, October 25

Friends, I write to let you know of an interfaith and inter-generational event to support the effort to approve Referendum 71.  The Youth Pastor at the East Shore Unitarian Church planned the event and is asking people from all area faith groups to join him.  The event takes place this Sunday at 12:30 pm and meets at East Shore Unitarian Church in Bellevue (12700 SE 32nd St).  The event will start with possibly some singing and personal testimonies and then participants will move to various intersections in Factoria to rally and show their support for approving Referendum 71.  Participants are encouraged to bring signs and the event is expected to last for an hour to an hour and a half.
