Dear Friends of the Dharma,
Suffering certainly seemed to be a part of our lives this past month, as many of us shared our losses and sorrows recently. As we look at the photo  on our homepage we can see only happy, smiling faces. But through our sharing in Hoza we know that behind all of those smiles there lie hearts filled with pain, too. Let us all be grateful for our sangha that supports us on our Buddhist path, and especially in times of suffering. Please remember Wayne and his mother in your daily intentions as she fights kidney failure and lung cancer. I am not assigning Altar Duties this month, but will ask for volunteers each Sunday from those in attendance.
