Honoring the Guest ~ Interfaith Worship Series
Exploring Diverse Faith and Spiritual Traditions
"The Hoop of the Creator" guest worship presenter to be announced
In December we explore "The Hoop of the Creator"
In the Universal Worship, we turn toward the source of all spiritual revelation and let it shine into ourselves, 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. Read more here.
This year our Universal Worship services will be focused upon Interfaith Community Sanctuary's spiritual discernment for 2015: "Restoring Balance to the World: Hoops of Honor." Read more here.

For this worship service, Jamal welcomes Paul Benz of Faith Action Network to share the morning Message with him. This is also our Warm for Winter Homelessness Awareness service where handmade hats and scarfs are brought to the Sanctuary for blessing before being gifted to homeless shelters in our neighborhoods.

Honoring Our Community!
"The Hoop of Celebration”
with Rev. Karen Lindquist, Rev. Chris Rapcewicz, Renee Lopez, and Suniai Ross.
About 4th Sundays: Rev. Karen Lindquist, with Associate Ministers Sibyl Lundy, Linda Stern and David Heitmiller, work with community members to create meaningful worship services on fourth Sundays. We honor our community by inviting members to share in all aspects of the monthly worship service. We believe these services will be creative, enlivening and uplifting for all. Interfaith Community Sanctuary is a community that values bringing to light voices that are rarely heard.
Our fifth Sunday worship services in 2015 are focused on deep experiences of shared spiritual practices from diverse traditions!
Sunday November 29th "Community Peshelth."
Siswinklae Katrina Laurel Boucher will guide us in this First Peoples spiritual practice, a.k.a. Give-Away.
One of the most profound blessings of having an independent and self-determining spiritual community like Interfaith Community Sanctuary is our ability to fulfill our dreams, visions, ideals — those that lead to harmony and understanding across diverse faith and spiritual traditions. One of the most beautiful and sacred ways to accomplish this is through the sharing of spiritual practices!
We have experienced the Path of Scholarship, a First Peoples Healing Ceremony, Remembrance in the Sufi tradition, a Meditative Tree Walk, and The Movement of the Spheres (embodied meditation).
