The mission of the HONOR DAY is to bring knowledge of the Native American Culture of the Honor way to the wide diversity of cultures in our society through art, education, and cultural awareness events and to inspire hope, acceptance of diversity, and positive actions toward peace on the planet.
The Flow Project mission is to apply the wisdom and experience of art in transforming humanity's response to the creative challenges of today's world.
The question then becomes; How do we bring our understanding of the Honor Way forward as the artistic creators of the world?
Doug Banner will speak on how the principles and practices of art, identified b the extensive research completed by The Flow Project, can be used as guiding principles and practices in living the Honor way. Doug will integrate the six principles and practices of art as tool to apply to living the 12 hoops of the world from the perspective of the artist within us all.
Music will be shared by Simon de Voil.
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 June we explore the "Hoop of the Earth."
This is represented as the circle of the Earth as seen from space. We celebrate the Elders who carry the wisdom of time, experience and tradition. They know the value of reverence for the earth. We honor the Elders and provide a place for them to share their knowledge and wisdom. We listen to Elders with reverence, respect, and appreciation. We celebrate the Keepers of Ritual and Keepers of the Cycle of the Year such as farmers and gardeners.

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.
