Sunday September 11th
(1) Won't you join me to represent the fellowship at an English-language memorial service for the victims and bereaved of 9/11 on the 10th anniversary of the tragedy. We Unitarians will offer a prayer and join in the chanting meditation (in English) of the Lotus Sutra led by a group from the Sumida Dharma Center of Rissho Kosei-ki.
10:30 at the Iredo (Tokyo Memorial Hall and small park/musuem--that memorializes the victims of the 1923 Great Earthquake and of the Fire-bombing of Tokyo in Jan and March 1945).
Place: Exit A3 of Oedo Line Ryogoku station. (If you come by JR Sobu line to JR-Ryogoku station walk around Edo Tokyo Musuem to the east side to find A3).
After the ceremony and a brief tour we plan lunch ("viking style") at the Dai-ichi Ryogoku hotel with a commanding view of Sky Tree and Sumida River.
Please contact me by email or at 080-5077-5515 if you can come.
(2) 3:00 at International House
We will hold Our Regular Monthly Meeting as usual on Sept 11th -- Topic -- let's share our experiences and possible solutions for the random acts of violence against civilians that have plagued our world in our lifetime often in the name of religion.
