Honoring the Guest: Interfaith Worship Series
~ Exploring Diverse Faith and Spiritual Traditions
The "Hoop of Intention" with Donna Jamila Crews Finney
We are asked to commit ourselves to something and set a clear intention as to how we will work to make a better world for all.
We will explore Intention being the commitment to open and receive Divine Guidance. Action from Divine Guidance that gives us energy instead of depleting us.
Interfaith Community Sanctuary's Spiritual Discernment for the year is "Restoring Balance to the World: Hoops of Honor." In October we explore the "Hoop of Intention." This is the hoop of Intentional Action. Right action requires respect, acceptance, gratitude, appreciation, harmony, love, compassion, deep caring connectedness and love. What are the issues to which we are willing to commit ourselves and our lives? What is missing to build a life we love in a world we love to live in? In this circle we are asked to commit ourselves to something and set a clear intention as to how we will work to make a better world for all. We celebrate the Scientists and the seers of possibilities. Read more about "Restoring Balance to the World: Hoops of Honor" here.

In March 2012 the Interfaith Community Sanctuary initiated a Capital Fundraising Campaign to cover current and anticipated major expenses to maintain our historic building…our unique sacred space. To cover current and anticipated expenditures plus provide a reasonable reserve fund for unexpected emergencies.
In 2014 we were blessed with a grant that allowed us to replace the roof but the exterior of our historic building still needs repainting. Our almost 100 year old water line and the gutters and downspouts are also in need of replacement. In addition, we would like to provide a means of access for the disabled. All of these projects are expensive but necessary to maintain the integrity of our facility.
We are asking each and every friend and member of ICS to think hard about what this community means to you and to contribute something extra to support the Capital Fundraising Campaign. All donations to ICS are completely tax deductible. Any donation to the Capital Fundraising Campaign should be marked “Capital Fundraising Campaign” or ICS/CFC. Donations can be made by Credit Card or PayPal by clicking on the "Donate" button to the right or by mailing a check directly to the church at the address below. Thank you for your continued support!
