Rev. Hyung Jin Nim's Interesting Story

September 17, 2009

Brothers and sisters we always like to start with something a little interesting!

We heard about the story of a little young man, his name was Michael and he has spent a little time with his grandma and eventually he came back home and he was eating dinner with his dad and his mom. And this was the grandma on his mom’s side.

And so they prepared a beautiful meal. Right before the meal, the children came and sat at the table and they didn’t pray and just started eating.

And then their mom said, “Hey wait a minute you guys. You know, we’re supposed to pray before we eat, we’re supposed to say grace before we eat. And the children said, “Oh don’t worry, unlike grandma, mom is a great cook.” (Audience laughing)

Rev. Hyung Jin Nim's Interesting Story

September 10, 2009

You know before we begin, we’d like to start with something a little interesting.

I heard a beautiful story: There was a college student who wrote a letter home to Mom and Dad. It read like this:

“Dear Mom and Dad, I feel miserable! Because I have to keep writing for money. I feel ashamed and unhappy. I have to ask for another $100. But every cell in my body rebels. I beg on bended knee that you forgive me. Your son, Marvin.

P.S. I felt so terrible that I ran after the mailman who picked up this letter. I wanted to take this letter from him and burn it right away. I prayed to God that I could get it back, but I was too late.”

A few days later, Marvin received a letter from his father:

“Dear son, good news! Your prayers were answered. Your letter never came!”

Rev. Hyung Jin Nim's Prayer

September 10, 2009

Heavenly Father, we thank You for this day that You have blessed upon us. Father, you have given us true faith and strength in this day. We have heard Your words of wisdom, Your words of enlightenment into our hearts. Father, You have spoken through our dear friend, President Carazo, his worldwide vision and his experience. Father, he has come here to truly be able to shed his light of compassion, his heart as a grandparent to all of his children and his family, really standing with a parental heart, facing this world and facing his own future.

Father, we are here today worshipping together as one family, and, Father, we are here overcoming all obstacles that are in our way. Father, we know that in our lives we may be facing challenges, hurdles, but, Father, we pray that You may give us the strength, the perseverance and the confidence to truly be able to overcome them and quickly move forward, to truly be able to establish Your world of peace. Heavenly Father, today is a true and great day.

We pray that You may be with our brothers and sisters all around the world, that all their prayers, their love and devotion may be here with our True Parents in Korea, that Your homeland may be blessed and all Your children that reside here and in other nations connected.

Father, we pray that your light of hope may reach all nations of this globe. Thank You today for our dear brother, President Carazo, his touching words, his amazing wealth of experience he has shared with us. Father, let’s not just respect each other but let us learn to love one another, let’s be truly global citizen where we can truly set the example for interreligious, international, interracial harmony and peace.

Father, we truly wish that we may come together into the temple where You reside and truly be able to offer our strengths, our worship, our faith, our discipline, our confidence, Your hope that you imbue into us, and, Father, that we may walk out with more confidence, more strength, more perseverance and more victory.

Father, thank You for this day. We truly are grateful for all that You have blessed us with and pray that Your abundant blessing may be with the Carazo family, with all their beautiful children and grandchildren, and that Your abundant protection, love and abundance and fruition may be with them for ever and ever. Father, thank You so much for this day, thank you so much for the words You have shared with us. Father, we take these with us and leave today more enlightened, more enriched and filled with more hope for our futures. We pray all these things with tremendous gratitude and everlasting love in the names of all the blessed central families around this world together here. Aju.

Favor of the Lord

September 5, 2009

August 22, 2009, HQ Church, Seoul Korea

You see, now the Unification Movement is starting to remember our divine destiny. We are starting to remember that our name means “Favor,” “Hannah”. And we are starting to remember that our destiny is not to be persecuted, be put down and be stomped on the rest of our days. Our destiny is to begin an incredible new history. We are starting to remember that. We are starting to have wonderful people from the outside that are helping us to remember that, to be proud of who you are. You shall not be ashamed. Be proud of your tradition. You have a beautiful teaching, and thank God, we are finally rising up, finally rising up to remember that.

Welcoming Remarks

Yeon Ah Nim

Good Afternoon brothers and sisters! It’s really great to see you all. We believe that our Heavenly Father is always with us, blessing
and guiding us. Brothers and sisters, on this bright and sunny day let us worship and praise our Heavenly Lord and True Parents.
Welcome brothers and welcome sisters! Read the rest of this entry »


Rev. Hyung Jin Nim's Interesting Story

September 5, 2009

I heard a story about Moses and Jesus playing golf with another man. It was time for Moses to tee off (to open the game) and so Moses hit the ball. There was a big water hazard and so the ball flew right into a pond. Moses went up to the pond, he stretched his hands forward and he prayed to God, and the waters miraculously split! He walked in and he sliced the ball. The ball went about a foot close to the hole.

And then it was Jesus’ turn. He hit the ball, and again it went towards the water! But miraculously the ball didn’t go into the water. It stayed on top of the surface! Jesus walked up to the water, walked on top of the water and hit the ball and it got at within about 6 inches of the hole.

Then the third guy, he hit the ball. It went up again towards the water hazard and fell towards the water and at that exact instant a trout jumped up and swallowed the ball. And at that exact moment an eagle swooped down and caught the trout. And then it flew up and as he was flying right over the hole, a lighting bolt struck the eagle which dropped the trout, which dropped the ball into the hole, for a whole in one (everything in one go)!
