The children in the family program on November 12th focused on the themes of kindness and gratitude. They shared aspects of our lives that they were feeling thankful for, as well as ways to do kind things for others. They then practiced loving-kindness meditation and made peanut butter pine cone bird feeders to share that kindness with the animals of the forest..
Also Saturday November 12th was the first day that the Shao Shan Temple Homemade Holiday Items became available. Sangha and Family members came together in festive appreciation of the bounty of Shao Shan Temple's gardens and orchards.
