The River That Made Seattle – BJ Cummings with Anne Fox


2023-01-29 10:30 2023-01-29 11:45 America/Los_Angeles The River That Made Seattle – BJ Cummings with Anne Fox

The Duwamish River has been subject to two centuries of competing claims – by native tribes, early settlers, industrial pioneers, and waves of immigrant communities taking up residence along its banks. The outcome of these conflicts has shaped the course of the river, the fate of its communities, and the character of Seattle itself. Today, the Duwamish River is polluted, its neighborhoods in poor health, and its industrial base stagnant. But plans for cleanup and revitalization are underway, led by a new generation of pioneers who reimagine the Duwamish as “a river for all.” Click here to join the livestream of this worship service on Sunday, November 20 at 10:30 am.
