* Our help is in the name of the Lord
Our help is in the name of the Lord
For the Lord our God is Mighty
Our help, our help

God is good don’t forget
That He’s never failed us yet
Our help, our help

We love True Parents
He’s the rock of our salvation
Parents
He’s the lifter of our heads
We love True Parents
Our hope in tribulation
We love True Parents
The only One we turn to Parents

He’s the rock of our salvation
We love True Parents
He’s the lifter of my head
We love True Parents
Our hope in tribulation
Prince of Peace, Lord and King
Mighty God is He
Our help, our help
Our help is in the name of the Lord

* Repeat twice

Our help, our help
Our help is in the name of the Lord(x2)


Knowing that You are Created for Greatness

HQs’ Church, ChungPaDong, Seoul, June 7 2008

But don’t just stop there. In our lives let us speak these words of faith (also) into somebody else, let us encourage others, give them hope in their future. Make them believe, “Hey! There is a way! I may not see it now, but there will be a way.” If we can speak those words of faith to others, if we can help somebody to get a new view of his/her life, then we will truly be living the blessed life. We won’t only be blessed in our own lives, we will be blessings unto others. We will be blessed blessings in this world.

Welcoming Remarks:

Yeon Ah Nim:

Good afternoon brothers and sisters! (“Good afternoon”, “Thank you”)

We are always happy and honored to have you all here, especially since it’s been two weeks since we last saw all of you guys.

As you know, we had Hyo Jin Nim’s memorial service in Japan and 6,000 Japanese members came and did a big memorial service for Hyo Jin Nim. That’s why we could not come here, and so we are apologizing once again about that, and we are also welcoming you, members who are joining with us via internet. We are welcoming you all. Thank you.

Hyung Jin Nim:

Brothers and sisters, I’d like to share with you from the Cheon Seong
Gyeong, from page 1040. I was just casually reading from page 2 and I
found this where Father says, “The question in loving God and people is
how much we have exerted (invested) ourselves. This will transform into
maturity of character in the spiritual world, and become the foundation
of glory.”

When I think about that, I really like that. How much in our lives
are we really concerned for others. When we do that ? of course it’s
important to take care of ourselves – when we do that, it transforms
into maturity, it transforms into spiritual maturity. In our lives, in
order to really truly be blessed, it is so important that we are
concerned for one another, that we invest into one another, that we
understand the value of our community. We are not walking alone in
life, we are together with our brothers and sisters. We have support,
we have help, we have a friend who can help us when we are in need, and
that sense of security, of spiritual stability, I think is so important
in our lives.

There are so many situations in our lives that can really get us down,
and where we really can start believing, ” I’m in this all alone, and
I don’t know why everybody’s leaving (me).” But it’s so important in
our lives that we remember that we are not alone. Sometimes we may feel
alone, sometimes we may want to be alone, but it does not mean that we
are walking alone. It’s so important that when we need help that we can
ask, that we have the maturity to reach out and say, “Hey! You know,
brother, I need some help, I need some consoling. Could you encourage
me a little bit?” And to have that in our community, I think that is so
important. I am so happy to see that we are able to be at that point in
our history in the Unification Church and (Unification) family.

Orphans of God

June 18, 2008

Who here among us has not been broken
Who here among us is without guilt or pain
So oft’ abandoned by our transgressions
If such a thing as grace exists
Then grace was made for lives like this

*There are no strangers
There are no outcasts
There are no orphans of God
So many fallen, but hallelujah
There are no orphans of God

Come ye unwanted and find affection
Come all ye weary, come and lay down your head
Come ye unworthy, you are my brother
If such a thing as grace exists
Then grace was made for lives like this

*Repeat

O blessed Father, look down upon us
We are Your children, we need Your love
We run before Your throne of mercy
And seek Your face to rise above

*There are no strangers
There are no outcasts
There are no orphans of God
So many fallen, but hallelujah
There are no orphans

*There are no strangers

Tears over flow, none stop…..deep in my heart, I keep on saying thank-you Heavenly Father and True Parents for given us such a precious brother Hyung Jin Nim. I felt that, I was born again, thank-you, thank-you, thank-you !!

I found my heart can talk louder then my mouth, in the original world of heart, I am sure it must be so wonderful.

HQ Chungpadong, May 15, 2008

I was impressed when Hyung Jin Nim recently said, “Our goal is not ‘not to sin’.” He was talking about that our goal isn’t to get to the point where we don’t sin anymore. “That’s pretty good,” he said. “But actually, our goal is to go beyond that, and to live the blessed life.” The problem with trying not to sin tends to be that we focus on trying not to sin; and that as we think about sin, and our shortcomings, and so forth, we tend to actually attract situations where we have to fight sin. Our focus has to become “living the blessed life,” focusing on living the blessed life, so we can accomplish that goal…and we attract the blessed life.


Welcome Remarks:

Mrs. Toffey:

Welcome brothers and sisters. We’re so very grateful that you are here. Each one of your faces is like a flower and together we can have a totally Heavenly Kingdom day because all of you are so unique and you really bring joy to God’s heart. Thank you for coming.

Brother Kyle

Speaking of flowers, I’d like to read from Cheon Seong Gyong, page 831: “If you wish to become a beautiful person in heaven, you should harmonize with the flower of love that blooms in all its glory, express the beauty and the fragrance of that flower in the world of relationships, and live on this earth in a manner that can harbor new seeds from the flower. When you pass on to the spirit world after living in this way, you will appear in the same way in the eternal world.”

It’s an amazing time in that we live right now, because we are speeding up history. And you as the blessed families are the ones assuring this new age. It’s nice for us to stand here and to look at you because, as my wife said, you have beautiful faces. We see your shining faces. We are so grateful that you have come because I know that in your hearts you are inviting God to come here today. The things that you want God to tell you today, we pray that God can talk to you through this service and through this sermon, through the songs and through each other. You are each so precious to God. And I’m so grateful today that you are here. So thank you very much for coming.
