Nigeria Interfaith Dialogue - 2010 - Morning Circle (10 min)

This morning circle welcomed participants into a safe place, preceding a variety of in-depth, face-to-face Dialogue experiences. The Muslims and Christians discovered their equal, shared humanity and that "an enemy is one whose story we have not heard. It was part of the 2nd International Conference on Youth and Interfaith Communication during October 22-24, 2010 in Jos, Plateau State, Nigeria. "Building Bridges Through Interfaith Dialogue and Youth Participation" was the theme for 200 diverse young women and men in face-to-face workshops that provided tools for successful communicaiton across old lines of fear and separation. It was initiated by the NEW ERA EDUCATIONAL AND CHARITABLE SUPPORT FOUNDATION of Jos, Nigeria, with facilitation by travelers from the co-sponsor 18-year-old JEWISH-PALESTINIAN LIVING ROOM DIALOGUE GROUP of San Mateo, California, USA. The African young adults returned home with new tools of Dialogue and it new quality of listening-to-learn. The hope was to unleash unprecedented cooperation and creativity needed to build successful, sustainable families, communities, and nations.
