Homily: "Spiritual Gifts"
by Rev. Story Lucile Ducey,
Emcee:  Rev. Amanda Hoover

or watch the simulcast of homily on 

With the belief that all paths lead us Home, ISD is dedicated to helping each spirit walk their path with courage and joy.

We stand for each individual’s right to seek their own personal Truth, as they respect the same right for others. We honor the sacred texts of all traditions of the Light.

We believe that communication with all spirits is possible and can be manifested.

The ISD Faculty join forces to explore the power of prayer. Science has shown that prayer is effective, but how do we start a practice? What words, what attitudes actually work? Please join us in Zoom Class every Thursday, and pick what to add to your spiritual garden. Register for one for $33, or $26 for ISD Members, or for the Entire Series for 15% OFF - $165  now $140- for all six sessions or $130  now $110 for ISD Members.
