Today's Dharma message was by Rev. Bert Sumikawa. He shared his experiences during his annual trip to Berkeley, reinforcing the message of Amida Buddha that things do occur to us in our daily lives that we don't necessarily enjoy, but helps us to know ourselves.
Today was also Remembrance Day for the month of June. Members offered incense as the names of friends and family who passed away in June were called. Remembrance Day is held on the fourth Sunday of the month.
