Special note for this week:
This election has been hard. HARD.
The complexity of what has happened is going to be debated endlessly. We do know hate is on the rise (from both sides). Fear is palpable.
If you want a bit of space to simply be. To re-center. To acknowledge God's mercy, grace, compassion. To not defend or accuse.
BELIEVING FIRMLY THAT ALL OF LIFE CAN BE LIVED WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF WORSHIP, ECHOES HAS ONLY ONE EXPLICIT WORSHIP GATHERING PER MONTH. SAFE ENOUGH FOR ANYONE TO VISIT, AND STRAIGHTFORWARD ENOUGH TO KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON, WE WELCOME ANYONE TO THE GATHERING AND TO THE COMMUNION TABLE - EVERYONE IS WELCOME. REALLY.
In each worship gathering we follow the pattern of "gathering, Word, meal, and sending," and we usually have some time set aside for personal reflection as well. We start with a little bit of silence, sing some songs, read and converse about Scripture, pray, and share communion. It's a relaxed time, with multiple voices being offered and shared.
The gathering starts at 6:30, will last for about an hour, and there will be snacks available.
Our location is at Whatcom Land Trust! It's easy to find because it's right next to City Hall. There is a lot of street parking, and the building has a great feel (the Land Trust does amazing work!). Address is 412 N Commercial; look for the Whatcom Land Trust sign.
