Featured Speaker: Sergio Moreno “Born Again Buddhist: A journey of belief and disbelief through five books”
Community Moment: Dr. Darrel Ray
Musical Guest: Mark Lowry
About the feautred talk:
After being raised evangelical and completing a degree in ministry, Sergio walked away from the faith and spent many years as an atheist. Longing for a spiritual practice that would not compromise his intellectual convictions, he eventually found his way to Buddhism. As he tells his story, he focuses on five books that served as mileposts on the journey from belief to disbelief…and back.
