Thank you to those who came out for the all Tenrikyo Nioigake Day held on this past Labor Day at Stadium Park. About 80 people attended of which 18 were from Pearl Church. About half of us went door to door nioigake while the other half clean the park as Hinokishin.
A Caucasian man approached us at the park and exclaimed, “I was just thinking, ‘wouldn’t it be great if a group of people volunteered to clean the park today,’ here you are! Would you mind if I borrowed your cleaning equipment?” And he joined us in cleaning the park! It was an awesome day. On door to door I partnered with Setsumi, we administered sazuke three times! There was a lot of paper & plastic trash that day at the park, so the cleaning was dramatic.
Thank you to you all. We just made the world a better place!
