I came to Buddhism through Gamblers Anonymous.  This is a twelve step program that centers around a “higher” power. I was raised in the Christian faith.  I lost faith in this and started looking for something different. Buddhism sounded very interesting. I started looking for a church in the area. I called Wapato church and talked to Katherine. She told me about the sukiyaki dinner. I went to this event and met with a Reverend from Seattle. He explained a lot about Buddhism a their beliefs. Buddhism is not a religion it is a way of life, a way of love and compassion. I was drawn to the idea of “interdependence” and true “reality”.  These ideas were really intriguing to me. I find the people very kind and compassionate. Interested developing community involvement.
