Jon

We will launch in March a digital story telling contest sponsored by UNESCO PPN. this will include courses for free on how to tell digital stories. The program is call "I am Africa. This is my story..." This program will include mission testimonies and I am looking for groups to team up with in Africa.

Please email me direct at rclose@richardclose.info and I will share information with you.
We are talking with other people in Nigeria interested in the program.

You can see our work at http://globallearningframework.ning.com.

Happy to get your reply! I got curious about your ideas about narratives. Myself seem to be comfortable to speak of common denominators of humanity, acts of love etc in a variety of words. I've been told I have such a Christian approach , Buddhist approach, Muslim approach and humanitarian approach in different contexts. I am happy they feel I can be a part of their pardigm, at the same time I wish they knew the similarities more then differences between them.

Hello =) Interesting area of expertise. I have an interest in the spiritual approach to conflict resolution. In Sweden that is very secular, there is lots of suspicion towards religion as a part of peace processes and help. I believe the world could benefit from being less categoric in exclusion and look for possibilities. Thank you for the inspiration :)
