with

Please join us for a Sacred Tree Walk where we will explore with focus and intention the trees that the Druids hold most dear in the vicinity of the Interfaith Community Sanctuary. The trees are experts in peaceful living. They play a significant part in this path-working as we learn about them, consult them and seek inspiration about how we each may live our lives to the fullest potential. This will be a journey of spirit, mind and body that will take us deeper and deeper into the forest of our own intuition and imagination. We will respectfully ask for the support of the neighborhood trees, listen for their counsel, and ultimately seek the wisdom of Grandmother Maple, one of the oldest tree elders in Seattle. Please bring comfortable shoes, water, and an open and joyful heart. Read more about the Circle of Coll Druid Seed Group here.

Our Spiritual Discernment for 2015: 
"Restoring Balance to the World: Hoops of Honor" 

The vision and inspiration is grounded in the prophecy: 
“When the earth is suffering and we see our children suffering 
there will come a generation that will restore Honor for all people.”

In May we explore The Hoop of the Nations.. A group of villages that share common cultural and traditional values makes up a nation. Leaders represent the need for balance and wisdom so that different nations may live in peace. Ideally, Leaders bring forth the values of tradition and the wisdom of time with the vision of a future of peace and honor for all. We celebrate leaders at every level who represent these qualities. We celebrate Communicators and speakers to all tribes at all levels.

Capital Fundraising Campaign

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!  Click HERE for more information on our Capital needs and Fundraising Campaign.
