The Guibord Center – Religion Inside Out
invites you to discover religion from a new perspective, offering new insights about the many faith traditions practiced by your friends and neighbors. As our understanding of one another grows, we move beyond ‘tolerating’ one another to building relationships based on mutual respect.
To bring people together to challenge assumptions,
unleash the Holy
and affirm the faith that transforms the world.
The Guibord Center celebrates three years of Turning Religion Inside Out – February 26, 2011 - February 26, 2014
“It’s not possible for one to say that they love God, or whatever one calls the Holy, and hate another human being or try to do damage to another human being…
The Guibord Center was established to really confront the distortions that we hold about one another and to uphold that which is good in one another.”
-The Rev. Dr. Gwynne Guibord
