Virginia Unificationists Become Blessing Education Pastors
Since July 2015, leaders of the International Family Center for Jesus’s True Parents Consciousness (IFC), located in Richmond, Virginia, have taken on the role of Marriage Blessing education pastors in Virginia. With the support of District 1, the Northern Virginia Family Church and the greater FFWPU community, pastors have made it a priority to reach out to others to promote True Parents’ mission and the gift of the Marriage Blessing.
The second Saturday and Sunday of each month were reserved for reaching out to other faith communities. Because of this, they have held six Blessing-related education seminars and participated in a Blessing ceremony. They also have helped coordinate, emcee, and participate in three ACLC True Family Values Clergy Blessing Education events.
A special Christmas gathering was held on Sunday, December 20, 2015, in Richmond. It was a wonderful celebration of the season and a great way to spend time with each other.
IFC associates, Ambassadors for Peace, and local community members are gearing up for a Clergy Couples Retreat at the Imani Temple outside Washington, D.C, on February 12 to 14, 2016. They look forward to continuing to build relationships and to serve their growing community.
