Editor’s note: Tom Conneally was one of a very small number of members who met and spoke with Father personally prior to joining our movement. Some parts of this story may seem extraordinary but Mr. Conneally was not a person who ever sought to draw attention to himself. Indeed, as the reader will gather, he felt his story was more of a burden to him than a badge of honor. We are grateful to him that he consented to write this story down before he ascended to the spirit world.

Part 2 (Part 1 was posted last week)

Five years passed. It was September 17, 1976. I was working in Sante Fe, New Mexico for a drilling company. I had been working all day long drilling a hole into the dry ground. Feeling dry myself, I went to my favorite bar hoping for a drink or two. Unfortunately, my paycheck had not been cashed yet, and I only had small change in my pocket. lt was good to have the week behind me, but without money what was I supposed to do? Leaning against the bar counter, I saw a few girls come in trying to sell flowers. When I went outside after a while, there was one little Japanese “flower girl” standing at the comer, smiling at passers-by and holding out a bunch of roses.

Curious, I asked her, “Whom are you selling those for?”

“Oh,” she answered, extending her smile, “we are fundraising for an event. Tomorrow there will be a rally in Washington DC and the main speaker is Rev. Moon. Have you heard about him?” I shook my head. She took a closer look…

Part 1. It was the weeks before Christmas, in the year 1959. Our third grade was to perform The Nativity, the birth of Jesus, Savior and Messiah?a topic dear to the heart of our art teacher at Our Lady of Solace Elementary School. “And when you pray, ask God if Jesus will come again,” she suggested. I might have followed her advice, for I clearly remember (even though other memories have faded away over the

By Peter Ross This article is drawn from a longer article entitled “I Have Seen the Mountain,” a reference to the meaning of the name of the city Montevideo. When he wrote it, in the mid-1990s, Peter Ross was the Director of Public Affairs for the Unification Church of North America.   My first impression of Montevideo is not what I expected of a South American city. Its design and prevailing atmosphere is entirely European.

Where the Infinite Blessing of God Is   Christian history in Korea Christianity first came to Korea more than 100 years ago. Most of the early missionaries came from Europe through China. Many were severely persecuted, and even beheaded, because they tried to abolish the ancient tradition of ancestor worship, which is common in the Orient. The day that one’s ancestors departed is always celebrated in Korea, and most families spend a lot of money

During the workshop the participants listened to the CAUSA (Victory Theory on Communism) lectures given by the university students themselves, it was a great help to the young people as they gained even more conviction in the Divine Principle and in the teachings of the True Parents to face ideologically the communism within universities.
