Translation of notes taken by the Unification Church History Committee
More than a hundred executives and employees from companies of the Tongil Group in Korea took part in this morning’s Hoon Dok Hae.
In his speech this morning True Father asked “What kind of nation is this country? Has Cheon Il Guk become our homeland? Has it become God’s nation?” True Father warned the participants not to focus on what to eat or how to live but on how to save this nation, emphasizing the need to lay the cornerstone for the establishment of Cheon Il Guk.
True Father reminded them that human history was a record of tragedy and sorrow, and that it was time now to clear that all away centering on the Abel UN.
In relation to the aviation industry and ocean providence True Father pointed out how he had laid the foundation for science and technology to develop in Korea and predicted the dawn of the aerospace and aviation era.
He asked that we have a good view of the land but to also gaze towards the heavens and let our dreams fly.
Ms. Jung Ok Lee gave a testimony about how she joined the church and her fifty plus years in the movement. She shared with the participants something Father said which she remembers to this day. It was about True Father’s conviction in God’s existence. “Even though I heard God’s voice and saw His form, I could not fully believe in His existence. It was only when I was embraced by God that I firmly came to know that God indeed exists.”
