From New Seeds Priory: It’s time for a new question…For almost two millennia, Christian theologians have been asking questions about the presence of Christ in the sacrament of communion. So they’ve come up with all kinds of fancy theological gymnastic routines like “transubstantiation” or “consubstantiation”.
The practice of Zen asks what I think is a much more vitally important question: Are YOU being present? I practice what I practice and share what I share because I think it’s time Christians ask themselves this question. I think it’s time to infuse mindfulness and Zen practice into the practice of being a Christian. I think this is necessary and crucial for the positive evolution of “the Church”.
