Obon ServiceAug 18, 2019 3:00 pm
Honouring all Ancestors – Obon is a time to express our gratitude to loved ones who have passed on before us. Without them, we would not be who we are today, due to the basic tenet of interdependence. We would not be where we are and we would not be able to do the things we do to enjoy life. Just think about the number of people involved in creating each of us. If we go back just thirty generations, we can calculate that there were over two billion parents, starting with our two parents, their four parents, and so on—and that’s just the physical part.
Obon Temple Service is at 3:00pm with potluck to follow. Please bring a dish to create a wonderful Obon meal! (Our super senior members are NOT expected to bring anything!)
Everyone is welcome to attend this special service of gratitude!
