User Participation Apr 12, 2013

Hey everybody! It\’s that time of year again! Oyasama\’s birthday (April 18) is fast approaching, so let\’s celebrate the occasion by wearing red on her birthday.

Please participate by posting a photo of you wearing red in the comments via Facebook (Fb group).

Although some of you who have a Proof Amulet are essentially wearing red already, we hope you will participate by wearing red out in the open, just like Oyasama did. Wear a red shirt, a red tie, red socks, red hat… it\’s up to you!

Three Years, One Thousand Days…

Events Jan 27, 2013

So it has begun, our trek for our spiritual journey towards the 130th Anniversary of Oyasama has begun! Are you ready?! It\’s January 26, the day when Oyasama hid her physical presence, so three years from today, is her 130th Anniversary! Ten years ago, I hardly thought about the 120th Anniversary. This day came and went like any other day. This time I want it to be different; I don\’t want to let this go by and I really feel like a lot of people will have some regret that they didn\’t put in the effort when they could have.

I hope within the period of \”three years, one thousand days\” I will accomplish something and maybe with this reminder, I hope you will too.

5 Reasons to Build a Tenrikyo Website

Inspirational Jan 7, 2013

Now that we are well into the information age, having a website for any kind of entity is almost essential in order to conform with the modern society. In the case for Tenrikyo in general, I see that building websites for individuals or churches is a relatively new idea, but rapidly becoming a rather necessary one depending on church size, services provided, method of missionary work, etc. That said, I came up with a list of 5 reasons that may help convince interested Tenrikyo followers, churches, or other church entities to ride the wave of the digital age or even invest more into it.

If your church is small, you don\’t need a full-blown website, there are other solutions that can suit your needs, which I may describe in a later article. This article is mainly for churches or people that engage in studying about the faith of Tenrikyo.
