Representatives from more than six Asian countries have gathered in Myanmar to try to develop stronger ties between Anglicans, Lutherans and Buddhists. The consultation has brought people together from Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, India and Sri Lanka. One of the key short term aims is to work towards a publication which could serve as a guide book for developing Buddhist-Christian relations. Longer term, it’s hoped the gathering will encourage the Anglican Consultative Council, the Lutheran World Federation and other institutions to support growing positive relations with Buddhists across the world.
