97th Tenrikyo Women’s Association Convention

The 97th Tenrikyo Women’s Association Convention was held on April 19, the day after the Oyasama Birth Celebration Service. Due to light rain in the morning, the venue for the convention was changed from Church Headquarters’ Inner Courtyard, to the North, East, and West Worship Halls. About 52,000 people from across Japan and overseas attended the convention.

Following Association President Harue Nakayama’s address, the Shinbashira took the podium to deliver his address, in which he encouraged the association members to devote their sincerity to what can be done and what should be done in this season and to fulfill their role as the foundation of the Joyous Life.
