Kid’s Clothing Sharing
Wednesday, Nov. 20, 10:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.
Student Center 130

Kids grow through their clothes so quickly! Let’s share gently used clothes for kids—newborns and up. It’s a fun way to de-clutter the closet, pick up a few “new” pieces and be part of sustainable shopping. You do not need to bring any clothing to participate. Clothing that remains after the swap will be donated to charity. Open to SU students, faculty and staff who are parents. Drop off gently used, clean children’s clothing at Student Center 130 beginning at 10 a.m. on November 20. For more information, contact Laurie Prince of the Parent and Family Engagement Office at

Advent Evening of Prayer: A Child Shall Lead
Presenters: Rev. Anita Peebles and Trung Pham, S.J.
Wednesday, Dec. 4, 7 p.m.
Seattle First Baptist (1111 Harvard Ave.)

God entered creation as a baby, born into extraordinarily humble and vulnerable circumstances. What if we were to enter into Advent reflecting more deeply on that child? And if we were to truly follow the lead of children, might we approach Advent—and life in general—from a new perspective? Might we be renewed by a spirit of playfulness, wonder, questioning and justice? Might we recognize our own vulnerability in theirs, and our call to walk with children in need?

Seattle First Baptist Church and Ignatian Spirituality Center (ISC)—a partner of the Center for Jesuit Education—invite you to let go of some of the adult stresses and “shoulds” of the holiday season. Enter more fully into the Advent season by pausing to reflect on this theme of “A Child Shall Lead” in this year’s ecumenical, contemplative Advent Evening of Prayer. Through quiet prayer, word, art, music, imagination and silence, we invite you to ponder what it might mean for you to follow the lead of the Christ child, your “child within,” and children today around the world.

Free parking in Seattle First Baptist parking lot (first-come, first-served). Cost: Free will offering ($10 suggested donation). RSVPs are appreciated. Questions? Call (206) 329-4824 or e-mail Andrea Fontana, ISC program coordinator.
