Well, we had another full day in Japan (although not as full as yesterday).
We crashed last night and didn’t get up until after 9 this morning.
But from then, we were off. I took about half an hour to setup a new router for Pastor Dennis. Then we picked up the team at the Domes and headed for lunch… JIB Curry.
From there, we needed a little exercise to work off the huge lunch, by the way, here’s the scenery from the restaurant.
So we went to pray at Shuzenji Temple.
The first thing to do is a ritual hand washing. Andrew is nice and clean now…
Then you can pay to get one of these wooden tablets and a priest will pray for your requests. (How does he pray for all of them? It must take a long time…)
Here’s the main room of the temple.
It was beautiful and the scenery spectacular. And yet all of creation (especially the sekada bugs) seemed to be yearning for God’s redemption and new creation.
More of our journeys later…
PS- it might help to learn a little bit of Japanese, and I suggest this excellent website to assist you.
