duration: 60 minutes

Chief Rabbi Jonathan SacksWell, after a two-hour plane delay we made it here to the beautiful campus of Emory University for “The Visit 2010” as the organizers are calling the Dalai Lama’s travel to Atlanta, Georgia. On Sunday, Krista will be moderating a panel (we’ll be live video streaming this too) with the Tibetan Buddhist leader and several other major religious figures, including the man she sits down with in just a few short hours for a one-one-one interview: Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks.

Rabbi Sacks is a prolific thinker and writer and I suspect this will be a wide-ranging conversation that could go down many different paths. But we will be focusing on his wisdom in contemplating how all of us can better learn how to honor the dignity of difference in a globalized world.

Please join us for this real-time dialogue. You can leave comments here.

It’s quite enjoyable hearing what other viewers are thinking and responding to. Check it out!

Share Your Reflection



Thank you Krista and Jonathan. Your conversation inspires me in my leadership role within a community mental health center.

Shucks! I couldn't hear! Didn't see a volume control. Oh, well. Thanks for the intention.

I am continually amazed at the relevance of this dialogue, at the changes in my hearing each time I listen, or the changes in my listening each time I hear these words. I am moved to tears and action and silence and sharing. I am sending this to my college age son who is preparing an Nonviolent Communication presentation for his college classmates in honor of MLK Jr Day. He has listened to this dialogue quite a few times himself and turns back to it often. If I could, I would collect not only reflections, but actions taken as a result of this dialogue. I know there are many and yet, my own changes in behavior elude words. some art or poetry is wanted.
