A Buddhist-Christian Conversation on the Parables & Teachings of Christ
A “Wine & Wisdom” Series at Emory Presbyterian Church, Atlanta ...
Join us as we engage in a fascinating inter-spiritual adventure! The Buddhist- Christian dialogue has long been recognized as a cutting-edge source of fascinating insights. Many Christians have found deep wisdom in the
teachings of Buddhism, and leading Buddhists such as the Dalai Lama and Thich Nhat Hanh have long been inspired by the teachings of Jesus. In this series, we will examine Jesus’ message, and particularly his parables, and offer them as a remarkable meeting ground for these two great traditions to engage one another, toward the end of mutual understanding and enrichment. Whatever your background is, you will see Jesus in a whole new – and enriching – light!
Convened by the Rev. J. Thomas Buchanan, Associate Pastor of Emory Presbyterian Church, with special guest Geshe Dadul Namgyal, Senior Resident Teacher at Drepung Loseling Monastery in Atlanta, a staff translator/interpreter at the Emory-Tibet Partnership, and the auxiliary English language translator for His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

The series is FREE and open to the public. Voluntary donations accepted to help defray the costs of wine and refreshments.
