Twice a year, the sangha has an opportunity to hear from our governing bodies, to ask questions and give feedback. The spring forum is primarily sponsored by the Dharma Council. Some topics we covered were the Succession Plan, the May Sit, the Heart of Work retreat this fall, Liturgical year changes, and Sangha-building activities. The Board and Dharma Garden Council also had brief reports.
This Sunday was also Jukai for the Dharma Garden, and so Jyoshin brought those children taking the children’s version of the Precepts over for the adult sangha to witness and bow.
The Forum was held on Sunday, April 17.
