In anticipation of commemorating its 110th anniversary in April next year, the Women’s Association is holding the “110th Anniversary Pep Rally for Women’s Association Members” regionally from May. A total of 377 venues are planned to host the rally throughout Japan and overseas.
Through this event, the Women’s Association hopes that all members strengthen their awareness of being association members, so that they can implement the association guidelines and strive to grow spiritually into fine Yoboku. Furthermore, the pep rallies are seen as opportunities for association members to unite their minds and pledge further efforts to sprinkle the fragrance of the teachings and do salvation work.
All venues will use the same program. A video presentation will be given, followed by a lecture by a Women’s Association Headquarters committee member. Association members representing the participants at the venue will deliver faith experience speeches, and the service will be performed. The program is made so that association members can have a deeper understanding of the qualities women are endowed with and further explore ways to apply those qualities to their daily lives.
In October last year, the Women’s Association Headquarters distributed flyers for the pep rallies to all association members through their respective directly supervised churches. The flyers were also designed to be used to help sprinkle the fragrance of the teachings as well. Throughout Japan, pep rallies will be held at local churches and local diocese offices, and simultaneous interpretation in several languages will be available during the rallies scheduled at Oyasato-yakata South Right Wing 2. The pep rallies are also scheduled to be held at 37 overseas venues.
