SEATTLE—Grammy-award nominated, Dove Award willing Jennifer Knapp is singing and touring again. Knapp appears at two venues in Seattle: Monday, June 18, 7pm at Queen Anne United Methodist Church’s The Well and Tuesday, June 19, 7pm at First Church. 

Jennifer’s newest album, Letting Go, features soul-driven folk rock showcasing her astonishing straightforwardness and spirituality.  

Jennifer Knapp chose to confront long-held speculation with a very public “coming out” in 2010.  From interviews with CNN to countless Internet blogs and a featured appearance on Larry King Live, the main question on everybody’s lips was: Can you be gay and Christian?

Her candor and compassion have led to overwhelming appeals for her to engage the challenging issue of LGBT inclusion and affirmation in religious communities.

Join the conversation on Monday, June 18 at Queen Anne United Methodist by obtaining your free ticket through Brown Paper Tickets: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/252931

Tickets for the concert my also be purchased through Brown Paper Tickets, starting at $8: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/252044

First Church Seattle offers free yoga classes

What is Pax Christi Yoga?

Yoga is an ancient practice uniting the mind with the body, becoming a discipline of presence in each moment.

In Pax Christi Yoga we use Christian scripture to focus our thoughts as we move and breathe and align with the inner world of the Holy Spirit. Hence the name, Pax Christi, or “Peace of Christ.”

As a progressive community that cares deeply about the whole person, we hope you’ll join us for this new worship experience!

Prepare to be stretched on Saturdays at 9am, beginning February 25. Pax Christi Yoga is free [donations welcome].

You’ll need to bring a yoga mat and a blanket, but if you don’t have a mat, we have a few extras!

The first ten people will receive a free gift!
