“Faith of Our Neighbors: Buddhism and Christianity”

August 28 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Location: Dong Hung Temple (Vietnamese Buddhist Temple a at 423 Davis Street, Virginia Beach, close to the Salvation Army on Virginia Beach Blvd.)

We will meet in the parking lot, go on a tour of the temple and grounds, and hear a brief overview of Buddhism. Then I will reflect on my own experiences with Buddhism in Japan (and on why I am Christian). This temple is in the middle of a residential neighborhood, there are huge statues on the ground, and the campus is visually interesting. Children would find it fascinating to look at. Adults, too. Chuc Thanh, the Vietnamese Buddhist monk there, welcomes us all and asks that we find it “as comfortable as our own church.”
