In the Universal Worship, we turn toward the source of all spiritual revelation and let it shine into our selves, our communities, and our world. Honoring all the wisdom traditions of humanity equally, we join in an ongoing cosmic celebration with all of creation, from the mineral to the angelic.
The Universal Worship recognizes that all religions originate in the same Truth. All of the great teachers and prophets have reflected this truth to humanity in their own way. The same power that inspired them continues to move through and guide our own lives. Through communal prayer, meditation, and practice we engage with the power and energy of this continuous revelation, becoming a radiant vessel of light and truth for the benefit of all beings.
Messages, and rituals for our Universal 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.
