touches Singapore, travels to Nigeria
05 November 2010
Sometimes, I know only this:
We are one family.
We are children of God.
Fruit on the tree of life.
With Earth and each other.
With Earth and each other.
- from With Earth and Each Other
Music & Lyrics by Dan Bern (2010)

"Earth and each other" increasingly describes the widening scope
of face-to-face, sustained Jewish-Palestinian Dialogue.
Past weeks saw Dialogue action touch citizens in Asia and Africa.
Courageous youth and adults continue to engage and not avoid one another.
They reassure us that the principles of successful human connection and communication are dependably universal.
You and we can proceed with that faith.
October 22-24, 2010 In Nigeria, 200 eager, intelligent, courageous Muslims and Christians from all over their green nation gathered in search of Dialogue tools for successful interfaith communication and healing.
On the high plateau in Jos, central Nigeria, facilitation was by invited participants of the 18-year-old Jewish-Palestinian Living Room Dialogue of San Mateo, California, USA.
Many of the best-practices were derived from the five successful years of the Palestinian-Jewish Peacemakers Camp in California -- http://traubman.igc.org/camp2007.htm
The inspiring coming-together in Africa will be increasingly documented on the Web.
This forward step might instruct and encourage other distanced citizens and nations worldwide.
through Interfaith Dialogue and
2nd Annual International Conference
on Youth & Interfaith Communication
22-24 October 2010 -- Jos, Nigeria
Large Group Dialogue
November 01, 2010 in Singapore, 100 diverse educators and practitioners of Service-Learning gathered at Republic Polytechnic for the Inaugural Experiential Learning Forum "Step Out For A Change."
They chose to launch their conference with a face-to-face Dialogue experience of sharing personal narratives in dyads, with a new quality of listening-to-learn while becoming closer.
The one-hour of skill and community building was guided from overseas via Skype by facilitators from the Jewish-Palestinian Living Room Dialogue in California.
It was another example of the value of communication technology and creative educators to provide experiences and tools for citizens to build a true campus, local, and global community.
