Video: Iran Delegation on PBS's NOW


The delegation of religious leaders - including Sojourners/Call to Renewal's Jeff Carr - that recently traveled to Iran was the subject of last week's NOW. From the PBS summary:

Producer Jamila Paksima revisits her birth country of Iran with American spiritual leaders hoping to promote dialogue on such explosive issues as nuclear proliferation, the Iraq war, and the holocaust. ... The 13-member team met with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, top officials in the government, and several of the ayatollahs who have a powerful influence on government policy. Can this delegation of mostly Christian leaders defuse the standoff and reopen the lines of communication between America and Iran?
