Wednesday, February 24, 2021 | 4:00 - 6:00 p.m. (Pacific Time)
This is the eighth event in the series "Inspiring Stories for Uncertain Times" that will explore "Healing our World" from different faith perspectives. Some of the key issues that will be addressed in the webinar are: What exactly is “cancel and call-out culture”? How do I respond when someone cancels me or calls me out? Where’s the line when raising important issues turns into blaming and shaming? And how can our faith traditions help us discern when we cross that line?
IslamiCity and The Guibord Center - Religion Inside Out, welcome you to a new season of storytelling and guided conversation about the real-life issues we encounter as we work to heal our world.
In this session, people from various spiritual and ethical traditions will share stories about their encounters with cancel and call-out culture. You’ll have a chance to share your own stories in a small group setting. We’ll talk about the wisdom we find in our traditions and reflect on how to apply that wisdom in our own 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 second season of conversations focused on the challenges connected to healing our world. 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.
