Easter Sunday Experience
Greg Martin shared this experience in the question and answer period after his lecture at the Soka Spirit FNCC. In it he shows how we can lead people to Buddhism from where they are, without being confrontational. In this case, on a Christian radio program, he used the example of Jesus's life to illustrate some key points about how to live life.
