Dr. Jin Choon Kim Visits New York
On May 21, Dr. Jin Choon Kim, Co-Chairman of the Cheon Il Guk (CIG) Academy of Arts and Sciences and CIG Supreme Council Secretariat, traveled from Korea to New York to highlight the accomplishments of Family Federation USA over the past 60 years.
The first slide of Dr. Kim’s presentation addressed how Family Federation USA completed “the most Essential Mission” of True Parents which was to proclaim the Only Begotten Daughter at the April 6, 2019 Peace Starts With Me Rally in Los Angeles. He said, “The most important role for the Messiah is to save humankind. This was done at the Los Angeles rally when True Mother Blessed 5000 Christians in a Christian megachurch.”
After his presentation there was time for questions and answers where attendees felt many of their concerns and understanding of the providence were addressed.
“I appreciated Dr. Jin Choon Kim’s methodical and detailed lecture. He opened by saying that the American movement had entered the completion of our mission by having Christianity finally accept True Parents through the Peace Starts With Me rallies. It was an uplifting acknowledgment of America’s efforts in the past couple of years. We can sometimes get so caught up in the day-to-day tasks and hurdles we encounter in our earnestness, so it’s important to hear this kind of encouragement.”
“Earlier in the day, Dr. Jin Choon Kim sat in on the weekly executive meeting at Headquarters, and was very inspired about the upcoming events and the American movement’s partnership with Christian churches. He shared with us that over the last year, through our work with the rallies, he realized that America has been successful in achieving its most essential mission: to partner with Christianity. He could really see “from an outsider’s perspective” that things have really shifted, and momentum is building in America. He systematically laid out what he saw, and what the next steps forward should be. He also talked about True Mother’s position in history. This was the first time I fully understood her title as Only Begotten Daughter. He said that True Father was the second coming of the Messiah because someone had that mission before him, but True Mother is the first and only person to have her mission. This was paradigm-shifting for me.”
“I was amazed at how much time and effort Dr. Jin Choon Kim put into understanding True Parents’ significance in the world and the whole restoration process. Toward the end of the presentation he shared a checklist to evaluate his relationship with True Parents. He recommended that everyone use it, check yourself consistently, because then you can honestly see where you are. I really appreciated that, because everyone is at different places in their life of faith. It can be hard to gauge and digest our own feelings toward the Unification movement, especially when there are changes happening.”
“Dr. Jin Choon Kim’s presentation should be studied by every sister and brother in American. He spoke about all of America’s victories based on all our foundational work. It sounded as if, providentially speaking, America is a front runner. To our Heavenly Parent and our True Parents of Heaven and Earth, we give all the glory and praise.”
