Sept 14 Meeting "A Variety of Religious Experiences"
The topic for our September 14th, 2014 meeting will be "A Variety of Religious Experiences (with apologies to William James): Personal Views of an Expat."
The speaker will be Paul McCarthy, Ph.D. in East Asian Languages and Civilizations.
In addition to teaching at various universities in Japan, Paul is a translator of Japanese literature and has translated Tanizaki, Nakajima Atsushi, Kanai Mieko, and scholarly and popular works on Buddhism.
Raised by a Catholic father and a Lutheran mother, Paul "naturally became an Anglican." With that start and his encounters with Buddhism, and his scholarly but lively presentation, we expect a very interesting meeting.
Anyone is welcome at the Unitarian Fellowship of Tokyo meeting at the International House in Roppongi, fourth floor, 3 p.m. September 14th.
