A Monk Learns of the Living Jesus for the First Time at the Summit

In an undisclosed country, growing increasingly hostile toward Christianity, a monk from an Eastern religion saw an advertisement for The Global Leadership Summit.

He was curious about the speakers and the leadership lessons he might learn, but assumed he would not be welcome because he saw that it was a Christian event. He decided to contact the team hosting the Summit to ask for permission to attend as a leader from another religion.

Of course you’re allowed to attend. In fact, you are most welcome.

During the event, one of the facilitators struck up a series of conversations with him. The monk told him, “Throughout these two days, I find this leadership content to be the best I’ve ever experienced.”

At the end of the conference the facilitator asked him, “What did you think of the Christian content?”

The monk replied, “I have always known about the historic Jesus. But this is the first time I have ever heard about the living Jesus. I have a lot to think about.”
