Inspiring Stories: Discussing Politics in Religious Spaces
September 21 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Bridging the red/blue divide in our families, faith communities, and beyond
Welcome to our third season of storytelling and conversation on complex issues we all care about. Once again, The Guibord Center and IslamiCity are bringing together people with rich spiritual backgrounds and diverse perspectives to share powerful stories from the heart and invite you into the conversation.
Do we discuss politics in our religious/spiritual spaces, and if so, why and how? What boundaries should congregations set around political topics, if any? Are there legal constraints affecting our non-profit status? How do we make such talks positive and hopeful instead of righteous and polarizing?
Speakers for this event:
Mohamed Dewji – Bio
Mark England – Bio
Rev. Wendy Silvers – Bio
