Liberal or Modern American/Bilingual Church

Postby stephlee » 14 Jun 2012, 23:23

Does anyone know of any liberal Christian churches that have English sessions? I live near Shi-Da and Tai-Da and would have thought there would be some for college-aged students, but so far, more seem to be rather traditional.

The church I go to might be what you're looking for. The pastor's from the US and he's black (with a little Indian mixed in). His wife is Taiwanese and she translates his sermons into Mandarin. A good non-denominational church with lots of good music. It's a small place, though. In case you're interested, here's a link:

Please PM me or reply here with contact info if you want me to meet you nearby and walk you to the church (I tried to PM you but wasn't successful for some reason so maybe providing contact info might be better).

English-speaking Episcopalian congregation in Shilin:

http://www.goodshepherd.com.tw/english/
"The verbs used in the most important Pali Suttas on mindfulness – the Satipaṭṭhāna and Mahā-Satipaṭṭhāna Suttas (M no. and D no. respectively) – are assasati and passasati, i.e.’ inhale’ and ‘exhale’. The same verbs are used in the Kāyagatāsati Sutta and Ānāpānasati Sutta (M no. 118 and 119 respectively). Although the Ānāpānasati Sutta uses the nouns āna and apāna in its title, it reverts to assasati and passasati in the discourse itself. The author of this article should try reading the Pali texts cited rather than drawing inferences from the title of a single text. Had he done so, he would see that the Pali texts prescribe no such thing as farting meditation." --"Mr. Dangle," responding to Eisel Mazard on New Mandala
