A story of beauty, loss and hope
Saturday November 2
The Alaska Suite features a five-piece chamber jazz ensemble performing the original music of Seattle pianist and composer Nelda Swiggett. But this is not just a concert. The performance engages the power of artistic expression — live music, spoken words, images and poetry — to connect audiences deeply and emotionally to the scientific realities of climate change. Ultimately a story of hope, the performance leaves audiences inspired to take action.

Weaving Baskets - Weaving Our Stories
1 p.m. - 5 p.m.
Suggested donation is $50
Basket weaving is one of the oldest crafts known – but it is so much more than a cool craft! It is a wonderful way to connect the ordinary with the sacred as you notice the parallels with weaving and our life's journey. The act of weaving creates a space to share our stories and realize that we are connected - woven together in lots of different ways.Join Kaila Russell at Tolt Congregational Church in Carnation. No weaving experience is needed, just willing hands and heart. This workshop is an opportunity to learn more about yourself and experience your story in a profound way. You will also have a beautiful basket, woven by you, to remind you of this step on your journey.
