In Memory of Rev. Dr. Zin Moon Kim
Today, our American Family joins our worldwide community in sending a great saint and dearly loved elder brother to the Heavenly realm. Rev. Zin Moon Kim will always be remembered with affection for his love and devotion to True Parents over a lifetime of service and devoted missionary work to more than 70 nations. Here in America we particularly note and appreciate his many years of service to our church, with stints as a Regional Director in California and Minnesota, before becoming National Advisor and Continental Director in 1991.
His Seonghwa (ascension) Ceremony will be held on March 5, 2016 at 7:00 am, at the Asan Hospital Funeral Home in Seoul. His body will be interred at the Paju Wonjeon at a service to be held at 11:00 am on the same day.
We particularly remember Dr. Kim as an entertaining, outspoken and down-to-earth teacher, preacher and counselor. In his book, The Fountain of Life, published in English, he shared his concern and desire to help English-speaking members understand the profound meaning of True Parents’ words from the original Korean. “The Word is eternal, so please don’t evaluate it by your imperfect measurement,” he would say. “If you don’t understand it, please just follow it.”
We join together in offering thanks and appreciation to our Heavenly Parent on this important and holy occasion. Thanks to our True Parents’ teaching, we know that today is a happy and victorious day, not the end but a new beginning. True Father often reminded us that, just as the baby in the womb cannot comprehend the enormity of this world, we here on earth struggle to understand that life in the spirit world is indeed vast and glorious beyond our imagination.
Rev. Zin Moon Kim, our dear elder brother, as you step forward now into this glorious and final phase of your journey to oneness with our Heavenly Parent, please know that your family and our entire movement are praying for you and offering you our love, respect and admiration. As you have so long been in the forefront of our American and worldwide Family, please offer greetings to True Father on all our behalf today!
