“The Story of God: A Journey of Faith, Hope, and Unity”

Guess what? I’ve been invited to dance at Carnegie Hall! Hang out with the right musicians, and sometimes, the doors open in unexpected places! I’m very grateful to my friend, ValLimar Jansen for inviting me to help animate the stage in one of New York’s most special places.

SpiritPlay

October 2022 – May 2023

Calling all angels – let’s dance, play and pray!

SpiritPlay has become a staple of Seattle’s InterPlay offerings! Now in our 22nd year, we have developed a wonderful community of faith and foolishness. This monthly series is for those grounded in Christianity who long for the spontaneity of InterPlay to help us navigate these crazy times! We’ll be diving into the lectionary, exploring sacred stories, dancing through the cycle of seasons, loosening our tongues, singing our souls, and improvising in prayer. After 2.5 years on Zoom … we are returning to our live meetings, for our sanity & sanctity – whee!
