Il Shim Graduation in Seattle
A graduation ceremony was held for ten Il Shim participants in Seattle, Washington on Sunday, October 20, at the Seattle Family Church. After many days of studying the Il Shim curriculum, praying and engaging in service projects, participants proudly committed to inherit Unificationist traditions in front of their families and friends.
Il Shim, Korean for “one heart,” helps young Unificationists grow their lives of faith, discover ways to serve their local communities, and deepen their understanding of God’s heart, the Unification movement, and themselves. Il Shim curriculum also emphasizes developing parent-child relationships and creating a space to discuss important topics such as life and faith.
Parents of the Il Shim participants expressed how inspired they were by their children’s commitment to God and self-growth, as they take their first steps into adulthood.
