Note: These notes are taken from a Peace TV video clip. They cannot be published as definitive texts and should never be used in the future as an “official” publication of True Father’s words. However, they do provide a good idea of the “spirit” of the message. — Rev. Katsumi Kambashi
Mrs. McDevitt read Father’s speech from the Sermon of Rev. Moon volume 54, titled “One God and One World Religion.” She read,
“It isn’t necessary in living our daily lives to experience the extrasensory world by becoming spiritual or receiving revelations. I would like to say it is more difficult than anything else to systematize the facts behind such experiences and connect them to our daily lives. A spiritual phenomenon is ephemeral, but the truth is eternal.”
After the reading, all sang “올챙이와 개구리,” (Tadpoles and Frogs) and “곰세마리” (The same roof Daddy) for Shin Pyeon Nim.
In Jin Nim, Hyung Jin Nim, and Rev. Yang presented True Parents large photos of the celebration of the 30th Blessing anniversary of 2075 Blessed Couples held in front of the Madison Square Garden, news coverage of the event, and their gift for True Parents (a statue of a couple of whale which are tossing their young). Father gave his autographs on the photos.
The sister who takes care of Shin Pyeon Nim sang “진도아리랑,” (Jindo Arirang) In Jin Nim sang “Amazing Grace,” and all sang “희망의 나라로.” (Into the Kingdom of Hope)
