Ascending Stars

Lincoln has been dubbed “The Star City, USA.” If I were to donate this, it would be to the City of Lincoln. I have lived here for 40 years, now, and I believe it is the cleanest, most diverse city in the world. Well, at least in the USA. We have cultures from all over the world with many religions and we had an interfaith organization called the Lincoln Interfaith Council that celebrated each of the represented faiths and more. Now, Omaha is taking on that tradition with their Tri-faith Initiative in which Jewish, Christian, and Muslim leaders are gathering to develop a common ground for dialogue. They are in the process of looking for land in Omaha where each of the faiths will have their own building, i.e. Synagogue, Church, and Mosque, but will work with each other and the community to maintain an open relationship and communication.
