Divine Principle Lecturer training Work shop

 On January 4th-6th, a Divine Principle Lecture Training Workshop was held at the International Peace Education Center. National HQ supported this initiative and sent Mr. Gerry Servito all the way from New York to teach the workshop, and members of CARP Los Angeles and CARP Las Vegas came as participants. The CARP members included both second generation members and young first generation members who were introduced to the Divine Principle within the past year or two, or even several months ago. Uncle Gerry focused on teaching about the Heart of God, and teaching each participant how to experience and convey the Heart of God through the Divine Principle.

Each day, everyone began by gathering together and reading True Father’s words about how to become a renowned Divine Principle lecturer. Discussion helped the participants understand the value of God’s Words and the importance of keeping a prayerful attitude while lecturing. After breakfast, each day Mr. Servito shared about one of the three hearts of God — the heart of joy and expectation, the heart of pain and sorrow, and the heart of grief and suffering. He shared very deeply, based on his knowledge of the Divine Principle and Unification Thought, from what he has learned from his own mentors and teachers in the Principle, and from his own life experience. Then, he gave a model lecture on the DP chapter of the day — the Principle of Creation on day 1, the Fall of Man on day 2, and Restoration on day 3. Afterwards, in teams of three or four, the participants studied a section from the chapter of the day and prepared a lecture on that section as a team. Later, each team presented their lecture in front of the whole workshop and received feedback from Mr. Servito and the workshop staff.
Many of the workshop participants were very moved by the content that they learned from him. One participant shared that through understanding that the Divine Principle explains the heart of God, he has taken his understanding and connection to the DP to a whole new level, and that now he is even more excited to share the Principle with others. Another participant shared that in the past, he was always reluctant to give Divine Principle lectures and didn’t feel confident to do so. But in this workshop, after discussing his section thoroughly with his team and finding so much meaning in it, he was excited to give his lecture and wanted to keep improving on his abilities. 
On the night of the 4th, after a lively Family Fun Night, everyone gathered and shared their testimonies of the workshop. Some of the young first generation members shared their testimonies of how they met CARP and began to study the Principle, and what it meant to their lives. Through hearing these testimonies, everyone was moved to see how God is always guiding our lives and always pouring out His love to us. Through appreciating how the Divine Principle has given hope to our brothers and sisters, everyone found a deep gratitude for True Parents and the suffering course they went through to give us the Principle. The CARP Los Angeles Vice President closed the night in a beautiful prayer of solidarity to stand with our True Parents and give them hope.  On 5th morning as we closed this WS, all participants pledged to become DP lecture who can convey heart of Heavenly Parent.
