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 Sermons of the Rev. Moon #47, titled “Value of True Unification Church Members (참된 식구의 가치).” She read “True person means someone who represents the whole, not only the present but also the past and the future.” She also read “Religions teach the way to control one’s body and strengthen their mind. Then they can get connected with the spirit world, which gives strong power to their mind. So it is a false religion that doesn’t limit physical desire and doesn’t encourage to offer Jeong Seong.”
After the reading, Mrs. McDevitt sang “야망” (Ambitions) and “꽃이 되고 싶어라” (Feel like flowers) and Father sang together with his eyes closed. Then the Participants (who were all male) sang “광야의 사나이.” (Man of the wilderness)
Rev. Chang Shik Yang made a report regarding Kook Jin Nim’s speech “Strong Korea” at the first “Asia Security Initiative Conference” held by the Washington Times Foundation, which took place at the US Capitol in Washington D.C. approximately one month ago. According to Rev. Yang, from Korea, Japan, and the US, about 100 experts of security issues in the North and East Asia participated. He was one of the participants of the 5-hour conference and later received interviews by Korean media such as the Weekly Chosun, the Weekly Kyung Hyang, etc.
Hyung Jin Nim sang “If I can Dream” in Korean.
