Coming up in February:
* The Book Club is reading "American Sutra: a Story of Faith and Freedom in the Second World War" by Duncan Ryūken Williams. This is a historical account of Japanese American Buddhists and their experiences in internment camps and as soldiers during World War II. You can purchase the book from Bill's Book Cart downstairs after Sunday services. The Club will meet on February 23 at 11:30 in the foyer. In conjunction with the book club discussion, Vista Buddhist Temple's historical exhibit will be on display so we can have a fresh appreciation of who we are as a temple, having read the history of where we came from.
