Please join local Druidic group Circle of Coll for a celebration of the Light as it penetrates and illuminates the Darkness.
Circle members Rich Ater and Moss Magill will lead us on a ceremonial journey through the ancient Irish saga The Battle of Moytura (Caith Maige Tuired) to honor the Celtic sun god Lugh and the mysterious Morrigan goddess who, in this legend, overcome the dark ruler Bres. In the legend, newly appointed Bres is found to be unfit as the king who has plunged his kingdom into sudden worry and despair.
Through interactive ritual, we will learn about how the brighter forces of Lugh and the motivational spirit of the Morrigan can be harnessed to seek out, examine and make use of the Darkness, helping us all to call forth understanding and tenacity to deal with great change in the coming year.
Messages, and rituals for our Sunday morning worship services are informed by the Spiritual Discernment for the year, Spiritual Permaculture: Coming into Deeper Relationship with Earth. As we work with the 12 principles we remember to Care for the Earth, Care for the People, and to not use more than our Fair Share of resources.
In December we look at Principle #12: "Creatively Use and Respond to Change. We can have a positive impact on inevitable change by carefully observing, and then intervening at the right time. Read more about Spiritual Permaculture at Interfaith Community Sanctuary 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.
