Q&A: Los Angeles priest champions interfaith education, dialogue

first_img Submit an Event Listing Rector Shreveport, LA Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Curate Diocese of Nebraska Press Release Service Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ The Rev. Gwynne Guibord leads the Guibord Center, which is devoted to promoting interfaith education and dialogue. Photo: The Guibord Center[Episcopal News Service] The Rev. Gwynne Guibord is trained as a clinical psychologist, and for much of her adult life she expected to continue in private practice until retirement. But God had other plans for her.She began feeling a call to the priesthood after a series of midlife events prompted a stretch of soul-searching, especially the death in 1992 of her sister from leukemia at age 37.“One morning I got up, and I remember saying out loud, ‘All my life I’ve told you I love you’ – referring to God – ‘and if you’re asking me to do this one thing, then I had best show up and do the work.’ And within a month I was in seminary.”The Rev. Gwynne GuibordAge: 72Where: Los Angeles, CaliforniaWho: Founder and president of The Guibord Center, a nonprofit organization dedicated to interfaith education and dialogue.Professional background: Guibord worked as a clinical psychologist before following a calling to religious ministry. She attended Claremont School of Theology in Claremont, California, and was ordained as an Episcopal priest in 2005.Now Guibord, after being ordained as a priest in 2003 and serving in Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles, is the head of the Guibord Center, an independent nonprofit organization she founded in 2011 to promote interfaith education and dialogue through a wide range of events and resources. She spoke to Episcopal News Service recently by phone.What was your religious upbringing, and were you exposed to many different religions at a young age?It’s kind of an interesting background. My father was French Canadian, although born in the state of Michigan. He was reared as a Roman Catholic, and my mother was from the South and she was reared as a Southern Baptist. My sisters and I were reared in the United Methodist Church. My father always felt drawn to Judaism. He converted to Judaism as a Reform Jew, was very devout in his belief and practice of Judaism. And I really observed my parents negotiating that. My mother would go to synagogue services every Friday night. They would celebrate the High Holy Days together, and they did that will a lot of grace. And I think it’s because of that that I started feeling very drawn to learning about other religions and faiths.Did you feel a calling at some point to pursue that kind of interfaith work more deliberately?Well, I have never ever felt called to parish ministry, although I serve at St. John’s Cathedral in Los Angeles. My calling has always been to work in the ecumenical, as well as interfaith endeavors. And now it’s completely interfaith.It can be tough enough to find common ground across the Anglican Communion and within the Episcopal Church. Why is it important to you to also seek common ground with all world religions?When you look at what’s happening in the world today, it would appear that many hotspots in the world come from a religious ideology that kind of has the attitude of, “My God is bigger than your God and therefore better than your God.” And I really believe that unless we completely understand one another, or as much as we possibly can about our various religions and faiths, we’re going have a very, very hard time with finding peace amongst us with any integrity at all. I have found that we have far more in common than not. We are distinct in our differences and we should remain distinct in our differences. However, there is far more in common. All religions or faiths know the whole notion about compassion, about our humanity, about leading with integrity based on our religious or faith beliefs, about treating one another with kindness. And if we were to emphasis that, I think the world would be in a much, much better place than it is right now.There are strains of extremism in each of the three religious that make up the Abrahamic family – Christianity, Judaism and Islam. Do strict interpretations of those faiths make it difficult for interfaith dialogue to happen?Every human being carries within them a filter, and that filter is how that individual sees the world. On that filter are things like a person’s age, their economic status, their political beliefs, their social standing in their community, their gender, their sexual orientation, level of education, the kind of family that they came from. And that impacts how people view or interpret religious texts. It’s going to be interpreted in different ways, some ultra-conservative and others ultra-liberal based on where they’ve come from and what they’ve come from.Does that make it more difficult to break through some of those barriers?I don’t know that people have that understanding of the filter that they carry, I don’t know that all people have heard it that way. And if they were to hear it that way they may be able to think a little bit differently about what they are reading in whatever their sacred text is. We tend to think that there is an absolute truth. There isn’t. There are many truths in the world.You served from 2003 through 2009 as officer of ecumenical and interreligious concerns for the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles. Is there anything about Southern California that offers unique opportunities for this kind of work?We’re on the Pacific Rim and therefore I would guess that we have more of the Buddhisms – there’s just not one Buddhism; it’s very much like Christianity – so I think that we have access to some religions that may not be as readily accessible in other parts of the United States. I’ve heard from people that they don’t have a Hindu community nearby or they don’t have a Buddhist community nearby.More recently, your experiences with cancer have informed your work, including the panel discussion you hosted in February, “Beyond the Veil: Life After Death.” Has your focus been more on what faith teaches us about the process of dying or on what might await us in the afterlife?It was both. The panelists spoke both about the process of death as well as various beliefs about what happens on the other side of death. And I doubt I would have done that panel had I not been diagnosed with my own cancer eight years ago – I am not terminal, I’m doing well, but I doubt that panel would have happened. There was a huge turnout. People were fascinated by it, and it’s a topic we tend to not want to talk about or deal with because all of us, no matter what that filter is that I referred to, will face that at some point in our lives.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Private institutions, such as TCU, can opt out, but only after a community-wide debate.Thursday’s mass shooting at an Oregon community college was mentioned briefly during the meeting, but the recommendation was agreed upon prior to the meeting.“The Faculty Senate recommends to the chancellor and the Board of Trustees that concealed firearms not be allowed on campus and that TCU opt out of the campus carry provision of Texas Senate Bill 11,” wrote the resolution that will be adopted by the Faculty Senate.The motion to adopt the recommendation passed with only three senators opposed and two in abstention. The Faculty Senate polled faculty opinion through email.They said the faculty opinion showed a large majority against campus carry but would not reveal actual numbers, citing confidentiality.A few senators argued that faculty members in favor of adopting the campus carry law were discouraged to vote because they knew the majority would support opting out of the law.The Faculty Senate also discussed creating a new committee to look at campus safety.They will talk more about campus safety after the chancellor and the Board of Trustees make their decision regarding the campus carry law.

The event is scheduled to be held between February 3 to 5. A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice Sachin Shankar Magadum said “The Air force in coordination with the authorities of the state government will have to take all precautionary measures to ensure such an incident is not repeated.” The court issued the direction while hearing a public interest litigation filed by Retired Wing Commander G B Athri and Geetha Misra. The PIL sought a one-man judicial commission probe into the fire incident that destroyed about 300 cars at the Yelahanka Airbase, during the International Air Show, held in February, 2019. The bench by its order dated December 7, 2020 had asked the police to file a report disclosing the progress made in the matter of investigation of the crime. Following which the Assistant Commissioner of Police, Yelahanka Sub division filed a report stating that the mishap occurred in the domestic area of the food court where vehicles were parked. The domestic parking area was under the supervision of the Airforce. This area was not given to police for maintenance. It was also stated that there was dry grass in the said area and due to connection with the overheated engine of the cars it caught fire. In the fire a total of 277 cars were completely burnt and 44 cars were partially burnt. The petition filed through advocate G R Mohan contended that the respondents have not taken sufficient care while organizing the AIR Show at Yelahanka Air Force. As per the relevant portion of Guidelines issued by the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) Government of India, the respondents ought to have taken sufficient precautionary measures while organising such an event where a huge crowd gathered. Authorities have failed to comply with the laws. When the public and other dignitaries were watching the Air Show a fire disaster has taken place in the parking area and no one is aware about the same as there was no control room or CCTV at the Parking Area. The PIL by way of interim relief sought directions to respondent’s to submit detailed reports as to what action has been taken so far in relation to fire accident. The matter has now been posted for further hearing on February 17, to enable the officer of the Air Force to file his affidavit.Next Storylast_img read more
