Boys on the Porch! Come hear her talk, Friday, September 25th at 6 pm.
“When a company of homeless men took up residence on the portico at University Lutheran Church in Seattle, Washington, all hell broke loose. Neighbors, realtors, health professionals, the bishop’s office, the business community, the daycare staff, irate parents, and the ecumenical community began to divide around the question, “Who is our neighbor?” This allegorical work addresses middle class values and superficial material appearances that block the mysterious, transformational work of the Spirit, who bridges all to the vision of the celestial city of God: crossing without fear to faith and love. Written by retired Lutheran minister June Nilssen Eastvold, The Boys on the Porch–Bridges from Fear to Faith is based on her years as an activist in Seattle, Washington, while serving in the university district as the pastor at University Lutheran Church.”

What is a Zentangle, you ask?
“The Zentangle Method (of Doodling) is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns.
Almost anyone can use it to create beautiful images. It increases focus and creativity, provides artistic satisfaction along with an increased sense of personal well being. The Zentangle Method is enjoyed all over this world across a wide range of skills, interests and ages.
We believe that life is an art form and that our Zentangle Method is an elegant metaphor for deliberate artistry in life.” from zentangle.com
