Albert Einstein used to say: “They sit to watch what passes by.” We have to participate! We have to work towards a better future. This civilization forces us to take into consideration that all human beings, no matter what the differences are, belong to a diversity of expressions of only one human race, all of them made by God. There is only one human race. All of us are alike. It is not a matter of respecting but loving.
Good afternoon, brothers and sisters!
Today we are having such a beautiful day to celebrate and worship Heavenly Father and True Parents.
And today we are also very honored to have former President of Costa Rica, Mr. and Mrs. Carazo, here. Let’s give them a warm round of applause. And we are also welcoming each one of you who are in this sanctuary. For those who are joining via internet we are welcoming you as well. Welcome brothers and welcome sisters.
Hyung Jin Nim:
Welcome, brothers and sisters!
Today we have such a distinguished guest. We are going to introduce him a little later during the worship service. Today Pr. Carazo is going to be our minister; we are going to be able to hear words of God from our President. (Laughter and applause) I’ve put out my retirement for this weekend but next weekend I will be right back.
Brothers and sisters, it’s always such a pleasure to see you here. Today we have such a great occasion where we can feel the foundation we have with our friends all around the world joining together with us. We want to welcome all the brothers and sisters that are joining us via internet from all the different countries of the world. We want to include you and have you participate with us in the service. As we always remind everybody – let’s take this service not only to observe but let’s really participate in the service. That means for us to be able to pray, sing, share and listen to the words together. If we do that we will be able to offer that to God and we will be able to glorify God and True Parents with a beautiful heart of love from His children.
We want to encourage you all to be participators today not only to observe but really being able to embrace the words that will come from Pr. Carazo’s heart. We really feel that he has such a rich history of serving the different nations of this world, promoting peace and being one of the real global peace activists, working together with True Parents. We are so grateful to him, and we are so honored that he is here with us today in our sanctuary at HQ church. Brothers and sisters, it really is a proud day for us as a Unification Family – we are truly able to stand together with one of our dearest friends, our most beloved associates and, we will feel the light of God and True Parents in our hearts today. I do pray for that.
