Minister’s Greetings

Members of White River Buddhist Temple, and Friends,

It is with mixed feelings that we inform you of our decision to retire from the White River Buddhist Temple as of the end of April, 2018.

It has been our joy and honor to serve as your resident minister for the last six years. I have served as a minister of the Buddhist Churches of America for fifty-six years. One of the reasons for our decision is to retire while we are still reasonably healthy both inbody and mind before I may suffer from senile dementia (with smile!) or difficulty in executing various responsibilities
as a minister.

We will have seven more months to share and enjoy our life here with you. During this time, we look forward to continue working together to plan for the future of the temple and also make the transition as
smooth as possible.

We would like to express with Gassho, our deepest gratitude for your kindness and support extended to us during the past six years. Life here at the White River Buddhist Temple was certainly memorable and meaningful for both of us and we thank you.

In Gassho,
Rev. Koshin Ogui and Mayumi Ogui
