Interfaith Music Festival: Sunday February 9, 5pm at Rolling Bay Presbyterian Church. Spring is a joyous time on Bainbridge Island. People start to come out of their winter hibernation, and the earth fights off the gray sky with bursts of brightly colored flowers. It is a perfect time for singing and listening to beautiful music in a worshipful setting. Music is a unifying force, no matter how different the cultures. The IFC concert is typically an hour long and features entries from almost all of the council member organizations. There is also a unifying choir number and opportunities for the audience to sing and dance. Everyone leaves uplifted. Like all IFC events, this is free, open to the public and family friendly.
Hungry Readers Book Group: On Monday, February 24 at noon in our fellowship hall we’ll gather to discuss Evicted by Matthew Desmond. This is the Kitsap Regional Library’s 2020 selection for “One Book, One Community.” Lots of copies of the book are available at various KRL branches. Says Goodreads.com: “In Evicted, Princeton sociologist and MacArthur “Genius” Matthew Desmond follows eight families in Milwaukee as they struggle to keep a roof over their heads. Evicted transforms our understanding of poverty and economic exploitation while providing fresh ideas for solving one of 21st-century America’s most devastating problems. Its unforgettable scenes of hope and loss remind us of the centrality of home, without which nothing else is possible.” Join us for a what the library is calling a “brave conversation about housing insecurity”; and feel free to bring a sack lunch.
Ash Wednesday: February 26. Worship service at 6pm; simple soup-n-bread dinner at 6:30pm. Open to all.
