Dr. Min Ha Kim, president of the Ambassadors for Peace Headquarters in Korea gave the welcoming address and emphasized for “qualitative development over quantity” and that ambassadors for peace should be “aware, be professional and have conviction so that they can be respected by the people in their local area and respective fields.”

On this day True Father took the podium and delivered his speech, which is the 15th chapter of the Pyunghwa Hoonkyung. The speech was entitled the “Three Great Subjects” Principle from the Viewpoint of God’s Providence.” In it Father emphasized the responsibilities of the ambassadors for peace in the “era for the Beginning of a New Universal Civilization of Peace,” and asked that they join him in “creating a new paradigm for harmony and peace in bringing the six and a half billion people of the world to become one family under God.”
He also explained about the Abel-type UN saying that he founded “an ‘Abel-type’ UN (The Universal Peace Federation) as a new Peace UN, which is active in 120 nations of the world. Its role is to guide humanity in the era for the beginning of a new and universal civilization of peace, with the belief that we must pour ‘new wine into new wine skins.'”
He left them with a call to “believe in and follow the True Parents. Follow the compass of your conscience in attaining the status a true parent, true teacher and true owner, and practice a life of true love that will ensure your eternal spiritual life.”
In answer to Father’s speech all the participants pledged to do so.
