Saskatoon Encouraged by Visiting Leaders
By John Payzant, Saskatoon
Prairie Oasis District in Saskatoon
Saskatoon's Prairie Oasis District received a dose of inspiration when Chris Eddy and Richard Lim came from Calgary to join us at our District General Meeting on November 25. Chris Eddy is Prairie Region Vice Women's leader and Richard Lim is Calgary Area Young Men's leader.
The meeting was held in the pleasant atmosphere of the library of Aden Bowman Collegiate. Many powerful and heartfelt experiences were given. The common elements in some of the experiences were to never give up on our Buddhist practice and to honestly face our problems. There was also a brilliant performance of the Beatles “A Little Help From My Friends.” One person joined SGI Canada on this occasion.
Some of us had the opportunity to connect with Chris and Richard before and after the meeting. Chris shared some of the inspiration she received from a recent leaders study conference in Florida.
