This paper emerged at a symposium on Lasallian pedagogy and interreligious dialogue. Grounded in the rich experience of Lasallian education in Pacific-Asia, the authors articulate an inspiring vision of Lasallian pedagogy in terms of a dialogue of life, dialogue of works, dialogue of theological exchange, and dialogue of religious experience.
