Abstract

NEWS AND VIEWS Do We Go from Here? The Many Religions and the Next Step. Over the years, his works examined Buddhist teachings and practices, Christian teachings and practices, Buddhist-Christian dialogue, and interreligious dialogue; more recently his focus had turned to queer dharma topics and same-sex issues. A memorial service, ``We Are Life, Its Shining Gift,'' was held for Roger on March 10, 2007, in San Francisco. Friends and colleagues spoke of Roger's life and accomplishments and his impact on their lives. There were Buddhist chanting and Christian hymns, with the service opening and closing with two musical pieces selected by Roger for that purpose: ``The Swan of Tuonela'' by Jean Sibelius and ``The Lark Ascending'' by Sir Ralph Vaughn William. Monetary memorial gifts are being received by the Society for BuddhistChristian Studies to be used in some fashion toward the 8th International Buddhist-Christian Dialogue to be held in 2009. Gifts should be sent to SBCS Corless Memorial Fund, CSSR Executive Office, Rice University MS 156, PO Box 1892, Houston, TX 77251-1892.
