Consider how Buddhists deal with death, sickness, old age, and religious renunciation. If possible, interview a practicing Buddhist individual or a leader of a Buddhist temple, which can be used as an academic resource for this assignment. If you would like to take pictures during your visit to this community or place of worship, be sure to obtain permission.
For this assignment, your role will be as a trainer for Christian colleagues to prepare them for a missionary trip to a Buddhist community. Complete the “Investigating Buddhism Outline” document for an extemporaneous speech on Buddhism from a Christian perspective to be delivered to this group.
Utilize the course textbook and a minimum of three academic resources, one of which can be your interview and should include topic materials and external resources. Provide an applicable quote from each resource in your outline.
