Our Mission and Vision

MISSION STATEMENT

 The All FaithCenter, whose doors are open to all, provides a multi-faith sacred place to come for worship, dialogue and learning. We are here to honor all faith paths, celebrate humanity’s oneness, to educate the public about the world’s religions and to sow the seeds of peace,  kindness and cooperation throughout the world.

VISION (2015)

We envision the All Faith Center as a Faith Cultural Center for the public in the San Diego North County area. It would be a unique facility which honors all faiths from the early Indigenous cultures up to more recent faith groups and presents the history of each faith in a museum-like atmosphere. It would also serve as a small art gallery of interfaith works. We see it being buffered on one side by a two story 1,000 seat auditorium which can be used for major Interfaith events as well as special guest speakers who come to the San Diego Area. We see it buffered on the other side by a vegetarian restaurant and catering facility with meeting rooms below. It would be visited by buses of school children, visitors to the San Diego region and will be accessible for meetings and presentations by local faith and interfaith groups. To that end, we need help identifying individuals and granting organizations which might contribute to the costs of such an endeavor.

A possible existing building type which could be easily renovated into the All Faith Center Interfaith History Center would be an older Junior High or High School: Auditorium for speakers and community programs; Lunchroom = Restaurant;   Classrooms = Faith spaces;            Playground = Parking, Labyrinth, Meditation Garden;

Leaders of key faiths met in the holy Indian city of Amritsar seeking ways to break the bitter cycle of sectarian violence, the organisers said. The third meeting of the Elijah Board of World Religious Leaders, a group founded in 1996 to promote inter-faith dialogue, brings together prominent Jews, Hindus, Sikhs, Muslims, Christians and Buddhists in a five day-forum to "share wisdom" on how to avoid conflicts, said Rabbi Alon Goshen-Gottstein.

What Is Interfaith?

The Interfaith movement is dedicated to increasing the dialogue between people of all faiths so as to bring a heightened awareness of how similar people are to others from different faiths and to increase the trust between people and create a greater peace in the world. We are here to honor all faith paths, celebrate humanity’s oneness, to educate the public about the world’s religions and to sow the seeds of peace, kindness and cooperation throughout the world. The All Faith Center whose doors are open to all, has previously provided a multi-faith sacred place to come for worship, dialogue and learning. It is now searching for a physical location in the San Diego region to create a 7-day a week environment where people from various faiths can meet for a variety of worship services, classes and casual dialogue. Interfaith centers throughout the world believe:

There is one God, called by many names, the Spirit of which is in every person and we are all interconnected with each other.
We accept all people as equal who treat all people as equal.
We respect the sanctity of all life.
We affirm the truth in all faiths and religious paths and learn from each.
We affirm our belief that seeking attunement to God/Spirit is the highest goal of conscious living.
We affirm an inclusive vision of “We.”
We affirm the essential goodness of the human being.
We affirm that each person, indeed all life, is a part of the healing of the world.
We affirm the value of Interfaith interactions as enriching our awareness of God/Spirit in the world.

  1. This is fantastic. I’ve printed out the page to take with me to various events and groups. What a great idea to give these talks on a weekly basis. Please continue sending them to me.

    I will also be visualizing with you the coming to fruition of the All Faith Center. It is happening.

    In Peace,
    Judy

  2. I so enjoyed meeting you both yesterday, Drs Abigail and Stephen, at the multicultural event in Carlsbad. Perhaps you know (I didn’t think to ask) whatever happened to Judith Hollister? She was my first inspiration in interfaith matters, many, many years ago as I read an article about her dream to build a Center where there was a different wing for every faith. I haven’t heard anything about her since and always wondered whether her dream was fulfilled. Sounds like you are working on something similar!

    • Hi Patricia. It was great to meet you also. Neither Abigail nor I know Judith Holister but we sure would like to. Let us know if you find out where she is.
      Blessings,

  3. Hi abilgail,

    I am so sorry to miss your labyrinth workshop. Unfortunately, I just received this invitation and my schedule is such that when things are scheduled on Saturdays I have to have more notice since my saturdays get full very fast. I am booked at least a month ahead of time and sometimes to month. Might I suggest when you are planning something like this that you send out a save the date card ahead of time? That might help some of us who would like to support your events to put them in our calendar so that when the time comes we are able to attend. You are doing so much great work and I love being in your presence..You are one of my favorite people. Lots of Love

    • Great to have met you and your husband Howard at our Labyrinth Color Walk. Hope to see you in Oct. for our Balancing with use of the elements walk.
      Blessings,
      Rev. Abigail and Rev. Steve
