The Rev. Dr. Daniel DeForest London A.H.C.*
Thomas Merton once said that he felt like he was a true Jew under his Catholic skin. Sometimes I feel like a true Bujew (Buddhist Jew) under my Episcopal skin: an Episcobujew, if you will. My father is a Messianic Jew and I was raised observing both Jewish and Christian holy days. And over the years, I have incorporated Buddhist mindfulness into my spiritual practice. However, my ultimate allegiance lies with a Jewish Mystic of first century Palestine, of whom I am a devotee and disciple within the Anglican-Episcopal tradition.
*A.H.C. stands for Associate of the Order of the Holy Cross
