Family Fun Day at ICP

The February Family Fun day  was a well-organized huge hit!  We showered all our interfaith spirit and love onto about 10 people, young and old.   Board member Gerry Caprio provided music for the singalong, assisting leaders Marla Kolman and Mary Zamboukos.  They did a fun project about the Golden Rule,  made peace flags and shakers like last time, and had a singalong.

The Family Fun Day takes place on the last Sunday of every month from 2:00 – 4:00 pm at the Presidio Chapel, 130 Fisher Circle, Presidio, San Francisco. Come and join us, and bring the whole family!

WE ARE ONE Vigil / Rally

Join us as we stand up for PEACE

We stand in support of a peaceful and just world. We oppose recent confrontational and violent actions that may promote war. We believe peace can be achieved through diplomacy, cooperation, and collaboration with the international community.

We believe in non-violence.

We request that signs be compassionate, respectful, and non-partisan.

“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.” ~ Dwight D. Eisenhower

A New Map for Relationships: Creating True Love at Home and Peace on the Planet

Dorothie and Martin Hellman, authors of A New Map for Relationships: Creating True Love at Home and Peace on the Planet, will tell how they transformed an almost failed marriage into one where they reclaimed the true love that they felt when they first met fifty years ago. They will also explain why the lessons they learned are the same ones the nations of the world need to grasp to build a more peaceful, sustainable planet.
