Dana Bekeart, retired professor of humanities at Kauai Community College and recipient of the 2001 University of Hawaii Regents Medal for Excellence in Teaching, will offer the second Malcolm Miner Memorial Lecture on “The Buddha and Jesus.”
The lecture will take place at 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 9 at St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church, 4364 Hardy St. in Lihue. The event is free to the public.
Bekeart will compare key experiences in the life stories of the two extraordinary religious founders. Both inspired their followers to challenge and overcome their limited spiritual conditions, to form new paths for devout personal renewal and to establish enduring faiths for millions to come.
