Fear and Faith

Wednesday, August 26, 2020 | 4:00 - 6:00 p.m. Pacific Time

This is the fourth event in this series which will explore "Fear" from different faith perspectives.

Fear is often at the root of our anger, our resistance to change, and the violence we can do to one another. Instead of letting fear control or limit us, how can our spiritual values give us the courage to face it and learn from it?

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

 We’ll hear moving stories from people about how their beliefs and practices have helped them explore fear and use it for healthy purposes. 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.
