duration: 60 minutes
Well, 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.
