Second Sunday: Universal Worship
Aug 09, 10:00 AM
Interfaith Community Sanctuary

In August we explore "The Hoop of the Universe"

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

Universal Worship at ICS is shared by Cherags Michael Douglas, Karen Lindquist and Sally Jo Gilbert de Vargas.

InterSpiritual Worship:
"Project Ethiopia” with Awoke and Workineh Gemetu 

Project Ethiopia empowers villagers to implement and sustain improvements in health, education and local economic activity. These culturally appropriate improvements originate collaboratively with villagers and are accomplished with local labor and materials.

With your support, more Ethiopian villages will have safe water, sanitary homes, an education, business opportunities and a better future for their children.

100% of all donations goes directly to support these projects. The administrative costs are covered by Paul, Judy and Dennis of Project Ethiopia.

Our annual community POTLUCK PICNIC begins shortly after the morning worship. Please bring an appropriate picnic prepared dish to share! We gather at Ballard Cornerns Park at NW 62nd Street & 17th Ave NW. Just one block east of our building.

"Mary Magdalene's Mystic Vision."

Within this worship gathering we seek to honor Mary Magdalene as Mystic, Guide, and Teacher through the contemplation of her Mystic Vision of the soul's progression as revealed in "The Gospel of the Beloved Companion." We will explore the Qabbalah Tree of Life as it relates to her Vision and seek to understand the levels of being and levels of consciousness we experience on our journey toward Enlightenment.

Messages shared by Rev. Karen Lindquist and Rev. Sibyl Lundy. 
Music shared by Suniai.

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. 

Fifth Sunday: Deep Spiritual Practice
Aug 30, 10:00 AM
Interfaith Community Sanctuary

Our fifth Sunday worship services in 2015 are focused on deep experiences of shared spiritual practices from diverse traditions!

Sunday August 30th “The Movement of the Spheres.” 
In this spiritual practice of body prayer and movement, we move as the planets move listening to the vibrational tones exuded as we expand our consciousness into the Hoop of the Universe.We have chosen to share Deep Spiritual Practice on 5th Sundays. So far we have experienced the Path of Scholarship, First Peoples Healing Ceremony, Remembrance in the Sufi tradition, and a Meditative Tree Walk.

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  Sunday November 29th we shall co-create a Peschelth experience.
