This last Sunday, in addition to our regular Sunday program, several people marched in the annual Pride Parade downtown. It was scheduled to step off at 11am, but because we were so far back in line, we didn’t actually start moving until 1:20pm, so people were able to come join us who had participated in our morning program. We ended up with about 15 Dharma Rain people, and were also joined by several from Heart of Wisdom Zen Temple as well as Larry Christensen from Zen Center of Portland.
