Andrea Miller talks to leading Christian writer Anne Lamott and her husband, a Vipassana practitioner, Neal Allen. Melvin McLeod also shares a wide-scale view of positive changes in Buddhism across the world.
Anne Lamott grew up in a family with atheist parents and a great disdain for spirituality. Neal Allen was raised in a Protestant Christian family but until he was 52- years-old believed he had no use for god. They were married by an episcopal minister, a Jesuit priest, and the Buddhist author and teacher, Jack Kornfield. In an interview for Lion’s Roar magazine, the joyous interfaith couple describe how they found the sweet spot where seemingly opposite beliefs meet.
