New Book by Subud Members

The Journey of Little Twig is a new book by Lynelle Stewart, edited by Osanna Vaughn and Rosanna Mount. The book is a universal wisdom tale about the adventures and journey towards manhood of a boy who is inspired to undertake a brave quest to save his family, his friends, and his tribe. It is beautifully illustrated with magical pictures that illuminate the themes of a young person growing up to become a hero and a leader. It will appeal to children of many ages and all those concerned with them.

Subud Library!

I just got re-connected to ‘The Subud Library’! It is a wonderful source for Subud members to find Bapak’s talks, videos and books by Subud members.
I especially like the videos with subtitles so one can understand what Bapak is saying while he is talking rather than waiting for the translation!
I just watched this one:

  “Bapak’s talk to Helpers & Committee – 83 LON 22. ( With English subtitles ) London, England,10/02/83”. Amazing!

Contact subudlibrary@gmail.com for I D and password.

The talk listed above was especially interesting with Bapak talking about his early spiritual experiences, history and some amazing testing! 
This is a great source for keeping well occupied during the pandemic and an amazing storehouse of Subud knowledge!  

Call-In Latihan on Friday nights!

We are continuing to have call in latihans on Friday nights for all members.  The call-in number is 1-425-436-6260 and the code for men is 8632438 and for the ladies 2426147.    I encourage members to join in and try it!

The way it works is that we call the number (1-425-436-6269) and give the code,      ( men 8632438 and ladies 2426147) , then announce our name when joining.  There is a quiet period from 7:45 PM till 8:00 PM, then the helper assigned will announce the beginning of the latihan.  You can listen with your phone or you can mute the voices if that is a distraction.  Usually at the end of the latihan we have a check-in to share how we are coping with life, health, changes, etc.  This has been a valued addition!  Please join us!  Keep safe!

November Financial Report

SGS Treasurer Summary Report: November

Income and expenses

Building Rentals

We had a no AirBnB or Hall Rentals in November. There may be some Income from iTrip for December which will not be received until January of 2021. Once I begin to see a steady flow of income from this new relationship, I will then be able to project possible income for 2021.

Donations

Donations were up in November over October. Because of the steady monthly support from mostly 13 members throughout this time of the pandemic, we have been financially healthy. At the end of the year, we could have a surplus that would enable us to make an end of the year group donation.  Please attend our January General meeting on Zoom for more details.

November Expenses

Our expenses have been kept to the minimum required to keep the building healthy and looking great for potential renters. We are able to continue to pay for cleaning, gas, electricity, water and garbage. 

Our main outflows in November, besides utilities were to prepare the building for the first iTrip customers. 

Future Expenses

Your committee continues to monitor and keep our costs as low as possible. Our December gas bill will be twice normal, due to the cold temperatures we’ve been having. iTrip has continued to help us keep costs low until we generate a steady income. I continue to monitor our costs to try to keep them as low as possible. 

Your Donations As Important As Ever

Your committee appreciates everyone’s financial support of our center during this time of great transition for all of us.  Your donations have been vital in covering our costs throughout 2020.  If you have not yet donated this year, please do so! Thank you!

Important! New name for donation checks to Subud Greater Seattle

Use only “Subud PNW – Seattle Center” on any future donations to our center.  Bank rules, recently changed, are delaying deposits.  Please be sure to change the “Pay To The Order Of” section of your handwritten or automatic withdrawn check from your account and use this name.

If you intend to make your donation to the Region, please earmark your check Subud PNW.

Pledges still being accepted

Please fill out a pledge form online if you haven’t already.

Thanks for those who have setup monthly donations

Thanks to all our monthly donators who have a recurring donation sent from their bank.  You save on envelopes and stamps.  And, you don’t have to remind yourselves to write a check. These regular checks really help us meet our monthly commitments to the region and pay for our use of our facilities. 

If you’d like to know how to setup a recurring donation to our group through your bank, please contact me.
