Knowing God/Knowing Love
1 John 4:1-14

Support Admiral's Ministries


Much has been said about the imagery in this brief, dense letter towards the end of the New Testament. The oft-quoted phrase "God is Love" is found uniquely in 1 John, yet much of the letter is difficult to make sense of due to seeming contradictions and improbable binaries. We will be spending two months drinking deeply from the author's complex symbols and teachings, working to liberate the text from our own binary thinking and asking 1 John to call us into greater faithfulness.

Resurrection Somehow: Clinging to Jesus

Mark 16:1-8


Though the opportunities have passed to join with others during Lent to reflect on each segment of  "A Meditation of Holy Week" you can still do so as a personal practice of prayer and  contemplation.

March 28 | Palm Sunday

as commemorated by a few other open and affirming congregations in West Seattle. 

April 1, 8PM | Maundy Thursday

This Taize-infused worship experience invited the gathered body to reflect on the meaning of service and the reality of betrayal. Please prepare elements for a remote Eucharist, a candle-lighting, and a humble heart in the shadow of the Cross. Hosted by Admiral Church, we welcomed our friends at Alki  UCC and guests.  [This service was not recorded.]

April 2, 7PM | Good Friday

Emerging out of the shadows of time, eye-witnesses to the events leading up to the betrayal, trial and crucifixion come forward this evening to share what they saw, knew and felt. We listen as the cry of their hearts ...regret, remorse and fear, are met with forgiveness. Hosted by Alki UCC, presented by the Spiritual Travelers, live streamed from the Alki UCC sanctuary,  joined by Admiral Church as well as Normandy Park UCC, Sausalito Presbyterian and guests.
