Doxacon Seattle 2014
Sat, February 10 at 8:00 am to 5:00 pm PST
For just as bees know how to extract honey from flowers, which to men are agreeable only for their fragrance and color, even so here also those who look for something more than pleasure and enjoyment in such writers may derive profit for their souls. Now, then, altogether after the manner of bees must we use these writings, for the bees do not visit all the flowers without discrimination, nor indeed do they seek to carry away entire those upon which they light, but rather, having taken so much as is adapted to their needs, they let the rest go.St. Basil the Great
Doxacon Seattle is a fan convention devoted to the exploration of Christian themes in speculative fiction, gaming, and pop culture, and of the impact of pop culture on our lives of faith. We gather in fellowship to share, discuss, and expand our experiences of how our faith interacts with the popular culture we engage with. Doxacon Seattle is appropriate for adults and children aged 12 and above, and for fans from any or no religious background who are interested in the themes we explore.
The Doxacon Seattle Planning Committee is a group of faithful Christians (including Eastern Orthodox, Catholic, and Protestant members) who wish to expand the mission of Doxacon Prime into the Pacific Northwest.
Absolutely everybody is welcome at Doxacon Seattle! Doxacon Seattle does not tolerate personal harassment or discrimination in any form or for any reason. While our focus as an organization and event is on the intersection between various Christian faith traditions and fandoms/ geek culture, we welcome anyone who is interested in what we’re doing! Doxacon Seattle is committed to being a safe and welcoming space for people of all backgrounds and identities. You are beloved children of God, and we are happy to have you!
We are always looking for presenters, volunteers, vendors, and partners in the conversation. If you are interested in working with Doxacon in any way, please check out our Guidelines page. If you would like to support our mission, connect with us on Facebook or Twitter, and please consider becoming a patron on Patreon.
If you have any questions or comments, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Church of the Redeemer
Church of the Redeemer: Worshiping God, living in community, and reaching out to the world around us. We are an Episcopal Church serving north King County and south Snohomish County, Washington. As you travel your road, go with friends walking the way of Jesus at Redeemer.
Church of the Redeemer is at 6210 Northeast 181st Street in Kenmore, Washington. The campus is a short distance north of Bothell Way, near the Burke-Gilman Trail. The entrance looks like a gravel driveway. The campus is larger on the inside than it is on the outside. And we managed to hide a large building on the side of a hill that is not easily seen from the street.
The Episcopal Church welcomes you.
