Last Sunday, we held our joint Hanamatsuri/Hatsumairi Service. We had two Hatsumairi infants who were presented to the Amida Buddha for the first time. Officiating the service was Rev. John Iwohara, former resident minister of the Venice Hongwanji, now with Gardena Buddhist Church. Our guest speaker was Rev. Nobuo Miyaji, current resident minister of Gardena Buddhist Church. Also in attendance was Rev. George Matsubayashi, so the service was especially noteworthy by the presence of all three former resident ministers of the Venice Hongwanji Buddhist Temple.
