Germany: Classic Concert for Japanese Families and Blessing in Japanese Temple
by Werner Fehlberg, FFWPU Germany
Michiko organized a concert for Japanese Families with mostly small children on Saturday, March 2nd, 2019 in the
Japanese Temple (EKO-Haus für Japanische Kultur) in Düsseldorf. All guests have been her patients as a gynaecologist. 16 families came to the concert.
Erika Kamura (piano), Risa Higashi (Oboe) and Andy Chen (Violin) have been the artists who presented us an hour of absolutely beautiful classical music from Mozart to Pachebel.
After the concert Michiko guided through the Blessing and explained to the participants the necessary steps: drinking of Holy Wine/Juice, the forgiveness ceremony, sprinkling of Holy Water and the benediction prayer. Michiko explained to the audience about the meaning and significance of the family in society and that it all starts with a loving and harmonious relationship between husband and wife which will benefit the children greatly.
This event has been organised by several people who gave their very best to create a wonderful experience for the Japanese families.
This has been absolutely great team work.
