Mr. Takuya Fujimoto (Konko Church of Akabane, Tokyo) was appointed as a new KIC staff member on March 1. He described his aspiration as follows,
I was introduced to the Konko Faith when I was a student of religious studies in graduate school.
I am grateful for Kami’s wondrous guidance in helping me realize Tenchi Kane No Kami in the midst of researching countless religions.
This year marks 10 years since I became Konkokyo believer, and by divine arrangement, I now have the opportunity to work at Konkokyo International Center.
I am sure that I will learn a lot from the vast “experiences of others” recorded in the 20 years of KIC activities.
I have the expectation that my appreciation of Konkokyo will be inspired and that my faith in Tenchi Kane No Kami will be renewed day by day through working here.
Reverend Kaneo Kondo, the Director of Outreach Department 2, retired from the position of the Director of the KIC on Auguest 31. On September 1 Reverend Michiyo Iwasaki, the Head minister of Shizuoka church, has taken over the position.
Konkokyo International Center（KIC）was established in July 1st of 1993. Today, it marks the 20th anniversary of its founding.
We hope to convey Konko Faith based on the wish of Tenchi Kane No Kami and Founder: “Kami shall have people become aware of the blessings of Heaven and Earth by having Konko Daijin be born throughout the world where the sun shines, in every country, without exception.”
The Reverend Toshimasa Okanari has been appointed the Chief Administrative Director on July 25th, 2012.
