A Thoughtful Conversation Across Faiths

May 27, 2020 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm Pacific Time

Listen to faith leaders’ stories about how their spiritual values ground them and share your own stories of resilience.

IslamiCity and The Guibord Center - Religion Inside Out (an interfaith organization dedicated to opening hearts and minds) are partnering to bring together people with rich spiritual backgrounds and diverse perspectives for online storytelling and guided conversation.

You’ll hear inspiring stories from leaders of various traditions about how their spiritual values ground them in times of uncertainty. You’ll get to share your own stories of resilience in a small group setting. We’ll also have a conversation that highlights the wisdom we find, and we’ll reflect on how to apply that wisdom in our own lives.

This virtual collaboration serves as a model of spiritual and interreligious engagement and mutual enrichment that brings together our communities in faith and hope for a better world.

Our storytellers for this event will be:

Tasneem Noor – NewGround: A Muslim-Jewish Partnership for Change
Tahil Sharma – United Religions Initiative
Rabbi Neil Comess-Daniels – Temple Beth Shir Shalom
Rev. Kathy Cooper Ledesma – Hollywood United Methodist Church

Participation will be limited to the first 100 people that register.

Note: After you register for this event, you will receive an email to the exact link you can use to join the event.

Please note: The keynote storytellers will be recorded, but we will not be recording the stories you share in your small groups/breakout sessions, so feel free to share your own stories related to this topic straight from your heart!

For any questions please contact Dr. Lisa Patriquin, Program Director for Youth and Young Adults at [email protected]
