I'm With Them
 
The idea was presented by Rabbi Ted Falcon. He suggested that members of the powerful majority – whether that majority status is born of ethnicity, religion, identity, age, class or otherwise – have a very real responsibility to members of the minority.
 
In a world so marked by resistance and struggle, he suggested that this very real responsibility calls members of the majority to step up and to say, “I’m with them,” in any moment of disregard, diminishment, domination (or worse) imposed upon the minority.
 
We envision a world in which so many members of the powerful majority step up next to their brothers and sisters in every moment of vulnerability, that all discordant sounds of separation are completely swallowed by the ever-rising refrain of, “I’m with them, I’m with them, I’m with them.”
 
Unity in Lynnwood invites you to join the chorus. You can order an “I’m with Them!” bracelet.  https://www.facebook.com/pg/Unity-in-Lynnwood-262871230413057/shop/?rt=29

TWELVE POWERS BANNERS FROM SEATTLE UNITY
 
Seattle Unity blessed and honored Unity in Lynnwood with their collection of handmade, Twelve Powers banners. We humbly and gratefully accepted this gift, of course, but upon receiving them and reviewing them, we concluded that they are far too large to enjoy any ongoing place of honor in our facility. 
 
I do believe they deserve to be displayed, and having discussed this with Rev. Karen, we agreed that it may be more appropriate to share the banners individually with other centers in the region on a first-come basis. I’m quite certain that UIL isn’t the only center that would cherish such a piece of Seattle Unity history.
