What would Jesus do if he met the Buddha? Did you know that a Christian can be an ordained Buddhist? Can Buddhist disciplines deepen the faith of a Christian?
The Forum at St. Margaret’s returns on Friday, January 17, at 7:00 p.m.. Our speaker will be St. Margaret’s own Glenn Webb, Pepperdine Emeritus Professor of East Asian Studies and Religious History. As a Fulbright scholar at Kyoto University, he began his lifelong study of Japanese culture and religion. He has studied at various denominations of Buddhist temples and was ordained in the Kanzan lineage of Rinzai Zen .
Dr. Webb, a Christian, will discuss “The Art of living in the World: Awareness, Respect and Trust”. He will discuss how he and his Buddhist colleagues became more aware and respectful of each other’s faith, and learned how to draw from the truths of each.
