Day Four: We have driven through the night from New York City and arrive at our hotel in Arlington, Virginia at around 3:00am. Not the most pleasant hour to arrive in a new town. The air conditioning on the bus was set on maximum overdrive and I had nothing with which to ward off the persistent gales of hyper-cooled air. Not a whole lot of rest this trip. What is worse, we have all of 3 hours before we need to rouse ourselves and put on our “game gear” to travel across town to the National Press Club in Washington, D. C. so Sami Awad can be interviewed by the Middle East Broadcasting Corp.

There is a sense of excitement and anciticipation. It is day one of EthnoGraphic Media’s (EGM) 12-day launch tour of its new film Little Town of Bethlehem. This premiere on September 21, 2010 was scheduled to coincide with the United Nation’s International Day of Peace. I am on bus with a team whose members have flown in from across the U.S. (California to Washington D.C.). We are joined by a film crew from Dot & Cross, and a photographer to document the trip. This ground-breaking documentary addresses a growing (and finally, truly hopeful) movement, composed of both Israelis and Palestinians, with united voice calling for a nonviolent end to the occupation in Palestine.

From a talk given to Christian radio broadcasters: “Should our worldview be that of war or peace? Is the message of the Gospel, “you can come home now the war is over”? or is it “if you surrender you will be safe”? And why it matters that those called to speak (or write) get the message right. And why shouting may not be inappropriate.
