SACRED CELEBRATIONS Rev. Joan Carter

On Sunday October 12, 2013 during morning worship, our spiritual cup overflowed as Pastor Emeritus Rev. Dr. Joan Carter and special guests The Spiritual Travelers joined Pastor Paul in bringing Joan’s liturgical arts talents back to SP, presenting an original performance of  The Triangle, based on the story of Hagar. We had a stimulating and inventive service, and send love and thanks to our Seattle co-hearts!

On Sunday evening, we had a special sacred celebration as Rev. Joan Carter renewed her ordination vows marking her 25th anniversary and, together with Reverends Paul Mowry and George McLaird, led an incredibly beautiful and deeply enriching evening service. Our tears flowed, our hearts lifted up, and the holy spirit rejoiced in us.
