We Alive International had a wonderful 6th-anniversary service and party this Sunday, June 26. About 110 people joined in person at the chapel plus 10 people via zoom. I don’t remember when was the last time we had such a lot of people. Of course, it was before the Covid. Then, I got a challenge from my friend, Tetsuya Dedachi, through his sermon on this day: “It is easy to find friendly people in the church but it’s hard to find a friend in the church.” I hope AI and myself can grow in this way so that we can be always ready to become friends with our newcomers and our neighbors.
