SOPP 2019 took place in Amsterdam on Thursday May 9th, from 7 to 9pm at Oude Lutherse Kerk (Old Lutheran Church), which is located in central Amsterdam. Usually, our event is about five hours long, but this time we did a short program of just two hours. Therefore, we included only religious programs of Yamakage Shinto, Tibetan chanting, Hindu chanting, and a Christian prayer, as well as a flag ceremony to pray for peace in each country. About 12 people participated, and we all felt a deep connection with each other.
