Happy 57th Anniversary, True Parents!
The first reflections from the live broadcast of True Parents’ 57th Holy Wedding Anniversary are starting to come in! Take a moment today to submit your own reflections for a chance to share your heart directly with True Mother.
“Being at Cheon Hwa Gung to celebrate True Parents’ 57th Holy Wedding anniversary was a precious and deep experience. It was the first time for me to visit the International Peace Education Center, too, since I came to attend the High Noon Summit. We had the opportunity to have a guided tour of Cheon Hwa Gung by Rev. Ken Doo, pastor the Las Vegas community. I had a profound experience….I was moved to read how True Parents declared there on April 14, 2012 that True Parents had fulfilled their messianic mission and that True Mother had been raised to perfection.
“In this context I felt more connected than ever to True Mother as my mother and became more resolved than ever to be united with True Parents for the sake of national restoration.” –Pierre Beauregard, Montreal , Canada
“Restoring Adam and Eve has always been the crux of fixing everything that’s wrong about our world and about our lives. So there could be nothing more valuable than the very Holy Wedding that achieves such a goal. I was so happy to share this celebration with our local Las Vegas family. Two points were especially satisfying. True Mother’s words are just so filled with clarity and resolve. I also noticed another quality to her words that is impressive to me: the calmness and steadfastness, never rushed, never forced, never wavering, and always to the point.
“A second really, really gratifying aspect of this evening was the local attendance. There were so many second-generation Unification family members there….I imagine Heavenly Parent always expected mushrooming new generations to fill church events and gatherings. As we know this has often not been the case, so tonight’s atmosphere was especially sweet. My gratitude is to Heavenly Parent and True Parents and for their representatives who make heavenly things happen as well.” –Steve Pierce, Ocean Providence Las Vegas, LLC
“Even though we were thousands of miles away, it felt as though we were there together with True Parents. True Mother was radiant with love, beauty, and words of truth. We are determined to share True Parents with the world–beginning with our tribe. Thank you True Parents!” –Andy & Lydia Compton, Las Vegas, NV
“What a privilege to hear True Mother speak from her deep heart on this historic occasion and be able to sense True Parents’ sanguine concern for our world wide family. The poem recited by Wonju McDevitt was fitting and beautiful even in its English translation. Thank you Mrs. McDevitt for fulfilling the far-reaching and exacting task of being True Mother’s Chief Secretary.” –Sebastian Huemer, Albany, NY
“We had a joyful celebration as a congregation on Sunday, April 16, with an inspiring sermon by co-pastor Ndassi Babatunde followed by cake cutting and cheers of Eog Mansei [10,000 years of prosperity]!” –Achille Acolatse, Washington, D.C.
