After speaking for awhile Father had Rev. Hwang sing a song. Rev. Hwang spoke about a song Rev. Yu had sung in Yeosu and how it had deeply touched his heart. Rev. Hwang then sang a song. After the song Father spoke again emphasizing that a time had come where Heaven could directly administer the affairs of this earth.
Father had Rev. Kwak read the preface of the Pyeonghwa Hoongyeong. Rev. Kwak then explained about the meaning of this morning’s meeting and emphasized that we should give testimony of the true love ideal and true family ideal manifested through the True Parents. He deplored our situation in that we were unable to fulfill our responsibly in giving the blessing to all the people of the world. Rev. Kwak asked that we all make a new beginning of this day.
Father then asked Dr. Yang to give a report on the boat factory in North Carolina. Dr. Yang explained that the boats designed by Father were ‘unsinkable’ and was tested and approved by the Coast Guards in America for its high-performance. After Dr. Yang’s report Father emphasized the need to be trained at sea and of his plans to give women the control and authority over the ocean.

Hwang that a feast should be prepared and had everyone pull lots to select 210 people.
While the lots were being prepared True Father emphasized the importance of becoming a true owner, true teacher and true king and of leading a life in absolute faith, absolute love, and absolute obedience.
Rev. Hwang then talked about the reason why they were holding this meeting and how the jubilee year in the seventh year of Cheon Il Guk was extended to the eighth year. He emphasized that it was our mission to create an Abel-type organization and to restore the Cain-type realm.
Father explained that we need to negate the fallen world and lineage and to create a nation and lineage centered on God. He emphasized that we should become the children of that kingdom and be married within that kingdom. He stressed that we should march towards that nation of joy and happiness that could allow heaven to go beyond that bitter history.
