Citation Honorees Reflect on the Golden Rule

2009 Award WinnersRev. Dr. Mark R. Sills and Rabbi Fred Guttman were the 2009 recipients of the Brotherhood/Sisterhood Citation Award.  Accepting their awards at the November 5th dinner, both faith leaders remarked that the event's theme, Living the Golden Rule is at the heart of their call to service, as well as NCCJ's mission. 
Rabbi Guttman and Rev. Sills have both lived the Golden Rule by furthering NCCJ's mission to fight bias, bigotry and racism, they challenged the audience of almost 1,000 guests and the greater Triad community to do the same.
