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, titled “Course Jesus must Take.” After the reading Father said the following.
“(Do you sing) a song of the resurrection which means one dies and then resurrects, or a song of looking for the path of death on the cross? You don’t know the resurrection, do you? What was the conclusion of the speech today? It is that the era of God’s full transcendence, full immanence, full authority and omnipotence (하나님의 전체·전반·전권·전능시대) is coming. What do you think would happen to the false people when the world, where there are no false things, is realized? Jesus before the cross and after the cross is the same person, however, since people opposed him, he appeared different in the resurrection. God’s full authority isn’t somewhere else to be found: if you always live together with the Messiah, you have experienced the era of God’s full transcendence, full immanence, full authority and omnipotence before dying, and as such in the spirit world where you go after you die will be a place you can dominate. Mull over the meaning of what I’ve just said if you think you understand it. (To Mrs. McDevitt) Sing a song.”
True Mother and Mrs. McDevitt sang “천년바위” (Rock of Ages) and Father joined them in singing. Father sang “농군의 노래.” (Farmers of the Song) True Parents together sang “산유화,” which lyrics Father constantly changed while singing. Then True Parents sang together with all “희망의 나라로,” “오빠생각,” (Into the Kingdom of Hope, Thinking about My Brother) “뒷동산의 할미꽃” (The Pulsatilla Dwitdongsan) and “봄처녀.” (Bomcheonyeo) At the end of singing “고향무정,” (Heartless Home) Father said as if he were delivering his lines,
“‘My parents have gone somewhere to offer the altar.
I am alone and want to find them.
Mother, Father please save me.’
(Father laughed) When you sing a song, associate the words with other things as I did now. Then singing songs is more tasteful and you will shed tears by doing so.”
