"I slept and dreamt that life was joy.
I awoke and saw that life was service.
I acted and behold, service was joy."
~ Rabindranath Tagore*
Volunteering within Interfaith Community Sanctuary is an aspect of our spiritual enrichment;
We are nourished through service to others. As we assist another to heal, grow, repair and restore their hope in humanity, we ourselves are made whole.
"You give but little when you give of your possessions,
it is when you give of yourself that you truly give."
~ Kahlil Gibran
If you desire to volunteer at Interfaith Community Sanctuary, we encourage you to attend services, classes and gatherings and to connect with our members, officers and ministers in person.

* Rabindranath Tagore was the first Asian (from Bangladesh) to win the Nobel Prize for Literature. He is credited for giving the title 'Mahatma' to Gandhi out of his deep reverence and respect. He wrote the anthems for India and Bangladesh. His book of song offerings, 'Gitanjali' is a favorite.
