An Anglican clergyman elected as a bishop has defended his right to use the practices of Zen Buddhism to deepen his Christian faith.
But in an interview with The Times, Dr Forrester said he was neither a Buddhist nor a Bhuddist priest and that he used Zen meditation simply to deepen his relationship with Christ. It was also a means to deepen understanding of the mystery of suffering, he explained.
This priest sounds fairly wise. I think even the smallest contact with Dharma is a significant event. Maybe this priest will be a Buddhist in his next life...

Yes, the mind continues on after the body dies, but if the mind is stuck in samsara, this is no fun.
