After months of planning and preparations the European WRIST conference could take place in Giessen on August 10, 2019 with much support from the Giessen area members.

WRIST (World Research Institute for Science and Technology) is an organization founded by True Father in 1984 under the leadership of Dr. John CS Park. WRIST had set up groups of members in US, Europe, Japan and Korea and had run many scientifically and technically oriented projects. Due to the passing of time and aging of members the activities had slowed down, but a few years ago True Mother gave permission to revitalize WRIST activities. For this purpose, a WRIST conference was held in 2018 in Japan and now a similar event took place in Europe.

For the conference WRIST members had come for this conference from Japan, America, UK, Finland and other European countries. Church members from France, CARP and the local Giessen community attended the meeting. Several sisters from the region worked with much energy and effort to prepare the drinks, food and lunch during this day.

The meeting started with a welcome greeting and prayer from Giessen city leader Christian Claus. Then Dr. Johnson from the UK introduced WRIST and several WRIST members gave personal testimonies about their life and WRIST related activities. This included Dr. Hiroi from Japan, Dr. Combs from America and Masumi Fukawa from Japan.

Then WRIST leader Dr. CS Park gave an inspiring speech about the history and achievements of WRIST. Especially he conveyed True…

In North Korea, True Father had especially sought out the spirit-led Christian churches, some of which had been very powerfully prepared to prepare the way for the Lord at the Second Advent. The story of Kim Seong-do, the Holy Lord Church that she established, and the persecution they received, is quite well known to our members. Rev. Chung Su-won, who wrote this testimony, was the grandson of Kim Seong-do and, together with his wife, blessed as one of the 36 Couples. He tells the story in his own words with details you may not have previously known.
On a boating trip with True Parents in the early 60’s. Rev. Chung is kneeling in front of Mother.

Connection with spirit-led groups

At that time there was a minister in Korea by the name of Rev. Young Do Lee, who was the leader of another spiritual group that was being persecuted by the Christian churches. [Editor’s note: Rev. Lee had received similar revelations concerning the coming Lord as Kim Seung-do had, and his church was in the Adam’s position among the spiritual groups in Korea, prepared to receive Father at that time.] He was receiving medical treatment from a spiritual leader named Rev. Baek Nam-ju. He had a revelation that Rev. Baek should find the spiritual group that was working in Eve’s position. Rev. Baek eventually discovered my grandmother’s church in Cheolsan.

While Rev. Baek was there, he learned from my grandmother that the root of sin was fornication. Second, he learned that Jesus came to build the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth but because the Jewish people denied him, Jesus was crucified. That is the reason my grandmother’s church did not put up the cross. The third point he learned was that the…

Ok Sae-hyun (whom we sometimes refer to as Grandmother Oak or Grandmother Ok) joined Father in 1946, before the Unification Church existed. Without any special mission title, Mrs. Ok carried out her mission as a historical mother of faith of our church.

    Jesus taught the early Christians that they should open their eyes, look closely at the fields and realize the harvest is plentiful but the workers are few (Matt. 9:37). Indeed, the current situation of the Unification Church is as pressing as it was in Jesus’ ministry. With the Vision 2020 deadline approaching, there is immense demand for the workers of God to labor in the field of evangelism and ecumenism for the Unification

    Brothers and sisters from all over the country gathered together at the Holy Oak Memorial Woodland in Stanton Fitzwarren on Sunday 4th August. They came to remember and celebrate the lives of their loved ones who left for their eternal home.

    The songs ‘Sweet, Sweet Spirit’ and ‘As the deer…’ set the tone for a very moving Memorial service led by our MC Bernard Chellew. Rev Dr David Hanna introduced the message of the day entitled: ‘In Him we live and move and have our being’ and sang a beautiful hymn called: ‘Be still for the presence of the Lord’. Then he spoke about our life being aligned with our Heavenly Parent and for us to come into the resonance of His true love. Holding a tuning fork in front of us he demonstrated the magic of the sound and vibration produced. Like a tuning fork with 2 prongs, our resonance with heaven makes us mediator between the physical and spirit world and melts away all anxiety of life. We find peace and peace is power. David concluded by reminding us about the soon approaching seventh anniversary of True Father’ Seonghwa, he then recalled some of his fond memories of fishing with True Father.

    The service followed with updates on the newly formed Seonghwa Ministry UK by Françoise Murphy. Various brothers and sisters then spontaneously shared about their loved ones, reflecting on their journey through bereavement, reading poems, telling their reflections and their experiences and contacts with their spouse from the spiritual realm.

    After the service, we all went to pray at the Holy Ground. In 1974 True Father planted an oak tree…
