Text Box: Who Are WE?
    The Inter-Faith Chapel is an independent congregation of more than 600 individuals representing over 30 different denominations. Membership is mainly by affiliation. This means that an individual becomes a voting member of the congregation by signing the Affiliate Register.  
   There is no requirement for an individual to relinquish membership in another congregation, although some affiliates choose to transfer membership to the Chapel.  Such transfers are accepted regardless of denomination.

Text Box: Autumn is a time of red and gold, shorter days, and transformations.  The changing colors forecast colder days and a change in wardrobe.  All of us have experienced the cycle from summer to fall for so long that we fail to see the beauty in this yearly ritual.

A spiritual practice is to approach the season of autumn with a beginner’s mind and the eyes of a “first-timer” because each fall brings something new to the environment and to our lives.  The spirit of autumn calls us to rejoice in the harvest of a good life, to gather together our blessings, and to enjoy the fruits of family and friends.

Just as our daily calendar changes to reflect a new month, so the church calendar provides for us one feast day after another designed to remind us of the heroes of our faith community.  For instance, on October 4, we celebrate the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi.  Francis is best known for his love for animals and protection of the environment.

His message continues to ring true today.  In a world where species after species are disappearing and where the boundaries between forests and cities are rapidly being erased, we need to hear the message of St. Francis
