Healing Our World

Wednesday, October 28, 2020 | 4:00 - 6:00 p.m. Pacific Time

This is the fifth event in this series which will explore "Healing our World" from different faith perspectives.

IslamiCity and The Guibord Center - Religion Inside Out, invite you to join us for a time of storytelling and guided conversation about "Healing".

We’ll hear moving stories from people of various faith traditions and backgrounds about how their spiritual values or ethics have given them the grit and vision to continue serving the greater good - especially in times as challenging as these. You’ll have a chance to share your own thoughts in a small group, and to discuss how we can apply spiritual wisdom in our lives.

IslamiCity is partnering with The Guibord Center an interfaith organization dedicated to opening hearts and minds. We are bringing together people with rich spiritual backgrounds and diverse perspectives for this event, the second in a series. We hope this virtual collaboration will serve as a model of spiritual and interreligious engagement and mutual enrichment that unites our communities in faith and hope for a better world.

Our storytellers for this event will be:
