Family Musical Devotional with Katy Porray!

Please join us for a family-friendly musical devotional gathering at the Unity Museum

Katy Porray, a wonderful musician, songwriter, composer, singer, children’s class teacher and full-time Montessori teacher is in town briefly from Qingdao, China where she has her own classroom at a bilingual Montessori school.

Katy led musical devotionals in Seattle for many years and we are so grateful to have her back to share her joyful spirit and encouraging song-leading!

The program will be very participatory with many sing-along songs and prayers. Families are encouraged to all attend together – parents and children, grandparents, aunties, uncles, friends, babies – and enjoy this moment of prayer and devotion. There will be light refreshments and some free play time for children to follow.

An exciting day celebrating our first year on University Avenue

open House1What a wonderful day it was…..even though we have started our fourth year, but this month closed our first year on THE AVE. We welcomed over two-hundred visitors throughout the day and night. It started off with a most powerful dance and performance of the Tlingit Tribe sharing their stories and in the end blessed our museum. It was shared that we are now a Sacred Place for them We have become family as we see each other almost every week.
Next we enjoyed some wonderful Persian music performed by Behnam Kooshkoo.
Such a huge treat to welcome our children perform for us a piano recital and some amazing songs. Thank you to the Rohm, Murphy and Padfield families. Can hardly wait to have them back.
Soon it was time to feel happy and sing along with Kurt and Leslie Asplund. Loved every song as it filled our hearts with joy. Least but not last we had the privilege of listening to the famous Cleve Ticeson. Life just could not get any better.
Thanks to Thomas and Judy Rohm for serving two-hundred people all day long with never ending new dishes of food and cookies. We also want to thank Shirley Ballard and Nancy Coleman for delivering mountains of home baked cookies.
Our many visitors enjoyed their tours given by our volunteers all day and evening long.
Come and see us sometime soon.

A day with students from the University Prep Academy

imageIt was a sunny day in Bellevue as three buses arrived one by one at the Eastside Baha’i Center for their annual field trip to learn about the various faiths and religions. The Unity Museum arranged for several speakers and workshops. The youth volunteers from Kent and Federal Way were amazing as they guided the many visitors. One-hundred and twenty-eight students came and toured our booth, the Baha’i Center and workshops. Dr. Roy Steiner (a member of our Board of Directors) gave a class on a Global Sustainability and the genetics of ‘human oneness’. Several other classes we shared by several representatives from the Christian, Muslim and Theist communities.
