Sermon by Rev. Alan Matsui
As this year comes to a close, this ceremony is the perfect opportunity to express our sincere gratitude, for the past year, for all the blessings we have received from our Divine Parent of the Universe, and to express our apologies for all our mistakes and shortcomings. After reflecting on this past year and cleansing our hearts, we can look forward to a fresh start in the new year, and an even closer relationship with our Divine Parent of the Universe.
It is also an opportunity to clean your home altar by offering back your Sacred/Divine Rice (Goshinmai 御神米) outer wrapper, at this ceremony. (Goshinmai wrappers can also be brought to the 12/3/23 Monthly Service)
