Jan 13 @ 2:00 pm

Christ Episcopal Church of Downtown Raleigh is excited to announce its annual Run for Young 5K race taking place Sunday, Jan. 13, 2019 at 2 p.m. Run For Young is a family-friendly race for the young and young at heart with a mission to raise awareness for teen safety behind the wheel.

Those who register by Wednesday, Jan. 2 will receive a complimentary race t-shirt and bag. To register for the race now, visit https://runforyoung.itsyourrace.com/register/.

The course for the race is an out-and-back route throughout Edenton and Hillsborough Streets, which starts and ends at Christ Episcopal Church, located at 120 E Edenton Street. Triangle-area families and people of all ages are invited to run or walk in the race, and strollers are welcome.

All registered runners will be automatically entered for the chance to win variety of door prizes. Other race awards will be given to the top three male and female race finishers, as well as male and female age group division finishers.

The race began in 2008 in loving memory of Sadiki Young, a senior at Wakefield High School at the time and an active member of Christ Episcopal Church. Young lost his life as a passenger in an alcohol-related accident on Jan. 14, 2007. The 18-year-old was full of life, personality and character. Young was a successful student, gifted musician, and talented athlete. The congregation of the church comes together with the local community each year to host the 5K race in his memory.
All proceeds from race registration fees will go toward programs that raise awareness about safe driving practices for teens at local high schools, as well as support for the Christ Church Youth Ministry Endowment Fund, which was created in honor of Young.

To commemorate Young’s love of music, the annual race includes music from local bands that volunteer their time to perform live along the sidewalks of the racecourse. Bands are still needed for the Jan. 13 race. Interested bands can contact rungoryoung@gmail.com to learn more about how to participate. There are also different levels of sponsorships still available. Businesses interested in becoming sponsors can visit runforyoung.org/sponsor-the-race.html.

Beginning Zen Practice, A Class with David Guy @ The Chapel Hill Zen Center
Jan 14 @ 7:30 pm – Feb 18 @ 9:00 pm

Monday nights, 7:30-9:00
January 14 to February 18

Stop searching for phrases and chasing after words. Take the backward step and turn the light inward. Your body-mind of itself will drop off and your original face will appear.
— Master Dogen

Zen Meditation, or zazen, is the simple practice of being present with our experience. We hear the instructions in a matter of minutes, but spend a lifetime learning the practice. This class will introduce participants to meditation and give them support as they develop a daily sitting practice. It will also introduce them to other aspects of practice at the Chapel Hill Zen Center.

The first night will begin with meditation instructions and a short period of sitting. Each week we will continue to sit for a period at the beginning of class, gradually increasing the time. Participants will have a chance to ask questions and raise concerns about their practice. As the weeks proceed we will study other aspects of Zen practice, including walking meditation, protocol around the zendo, and the service of bowing and chanting. But the focus will be on zazen, and participants’ actual practice as it unfolds. The content of the class will emerge from participants’ questions and concerns.

Cost is $60, payable the first night, and will be contributed to the Zen Center. Partial scholarships are available. For more information, or to sign up, please contact David Guy at (919) 641-9277 or davidguy@mindspring.com.

David Guy has been practicing meditation since 1991, and regularly gives sitting instruction. He has co-authored two books with Larry Rosenberg of the Cambridge Insight Meditation Center — Breath by Breath: The Liberating Practice of Insight Meditation and Living in the Light of Death: On the Art of Being Truly Alive. In 2008 he published Jake Fades: A Novel of Impermanence. David’s Blog can be found at www.davidguy.org
