Nembutsu Chanters at Artown
Once again we were honored to be a part of Artown this year. We had two performances held at the Temple featuring our own Nembutsu Chanters. Chants from various Buddhist traditions were performed. What an uplifting and fun(!) event!
DID YOU KNOW? The Resident Priests at RBC are very active participants in our local religious community. They often attend events with other religious organizations in town, in the name of sharing, education, diversity and community. Last week, Reverend Matthew was part of a panel discussion at St. Mary’s Medical Center. Twice a year, he participates in this discussion teaching new nurses to be sensitive to the different world views patients may have. On the panel there are representatives of Hinduism, Islam, Catholicism, Judaism and LDS. It is a time of sharing and contrasting how different and similar the world religions truly are. Rev Matthew always looks forward to the practical experiences and questions that the nurses ask. And he also appreciates the refresher on details of other religious views!
