First Sunday Family Service with Rev. Kaufmann

Our guest speaker for today's service was Rev. Arthur Kaufmann. Born and raised in New York City, Rev. Kaufmann began studying Jodo Shinshu Buddhism at the Denver Tri-State Buddhist Temple after serving in the U.S. Air Force. Rev. Kaufmann shared his experiences growing up and how he became a Jodo Shinshu Buddhist.

After the service, Prudence lead the group in making a special, three-dimensional Buddha Day greeting card, followed by coloring of eggs. While the activities are usually targeted for the younger members, everyone enjoyed participating, as you can see below. We predict that many members will be having egg-salad sandwiches for lunch in the days to come.

The MCs for today were the Fujikawas.
