From a Baha'i Views correspondent in the field comes this item. -gw

Some random thoughts of mine...

1- Re The news itself: Good! But Baha'u'llah asked you to do this 150 years ago, and you refused. Too little too late maybe? Hey, any movememt is good at this point...but oh so many many many lives could have been spared if these leaders had been focused on the new historical realities they were being offered by Baha'u'llah, instead of their own private agendas.

2- "Plans for the week-long Yale conference include workshops on theology and ethics. Sessions tackling the toughest issues – such as religious freedom, including proselytism and apostasy – are expected to be closed-door. " What are they afraid of?

3- In April 2009, the plan is to invite all those involved to Amman, Jordan, for a meeting at a site where according to tradition Jesus was baptized. "Muslims and Christians are living in a wounded world," Nakhooda says. "Part of the [effort] ... is to start the process of healing.... It's going to require a lot of open-hearted, sincere discussion." Baha'u'llah has already poured the Waters of Healing, and begun the Healing... all you have to do is open your hearts to Him...
