New Wine, New Wineskins’ relationship with Dharma Rain Zen Center goes back to 2003, when Dr. Paul Louis Metzger began working with Abbot Kyogen Carlson on civic and religious concerns pertaining to the common good.  That relationship continues today through our monthly dialogue sessions over potluck meals.  You can find out more about our longstanding partnership through this article on Beloved Community and this videoOur aim in these dialogues is to seek to understand one another with charity, while holding firmly to our respective convictions as Buddhists and Christians, in pursuit of building beloved community in our society today.
