Multiple paths to the mountaintop.
Over the weekend, the Dalai Lama visited Southern California to help dedicate a new Buddhist temple. When asked how he could be so seemingly happy and content, he said that after his country and his culture were taken away, there was no way he was going to let anyone take away his joy. For that, he needed neither a temple nor a sophisticated organization, simply an appreciation for being alive.
May it be contagious for all of us as we move into the summer months in our country church on the green.
