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.
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
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.
