Sunday Family Service

We welcomed Rev. Toshiyuki Umitani, who will be assisting Kailua Hongwanji during Rev. Nakamoto's leave of absence. Currently the Executive Assistant to the Bishop at Honpa Hongwanji Mission of Hawaii, Rev. Umitani is no stranger to Kailua Hongwanji. Kailua was his first resident ministry assignment from 2004 to 2005.

Linda Jaffe made her M.C. debut and did a great job!

Prudence Kusano gave today's Dharma Talk about metta, loving and kindness.

May I be happy,
May I be safe;
May I be strong,
May I live with ease.

May you be happy,
May you be safe;
May you be strong,
May you live with ease.

May all beings be happy,
May all beings be safe;
May all beings be strong,
May all beings live with ease.

Prudence also gave us a preview of next week's First Sunday family activity. We will be making Buddha Day cards. Join us on Sunday, April 2nd at 9:00am for our Family Service.
