The First Visits with UUA Partners in Japan
UUA President Rev. Peter Morales is in the midst of a week-long visit with interfaith partners in Japan. On Sunday, Rev. Morales attended the worship service at the historic Universalist church in Tokyo: Dojin Church. Members of the Tokyo Unitarian Fellowship (a largely ex-pat group) met with him there as well.
After lunch, Rev. Morales visited Rissho Kosei-kai (RKK) headquarters in Tokyo and joined its leaders for dinner. RKK is a six-million member, lay-Buddhist organization.
On Monday morning, Rev. Morales delivered a congratulatory speech during the RKK annual "Founding Day" event.
From Tokyo, Rev. Morales traveled to Kyoto to visit with other interfaith partners, including Mitsumi-kai, a recent member of the International Association for Religious Freedom (IARF). See previous blogposts about the visits here.
