Returning to God and True Parents

Dr. Ki Hoon Kim, FFWPU International Vice President and Continental Chairman of FFWPU USA, delivered the Sunday sermon to the Clifton, New Jersey Family Church on June 25, 2017. As we approach True Mother’s message at Madison Square Garden, “Peace Starts with Me,” Dr. Kim reminds us that the ultimate purpose of our lives–going beyond True Parents at the Garden–is to return to our beloved Heavenly Parent. This, too, begins within us. 

This Week on True Parents Way

In our blog, Peace Starts With Me, we deepen our understanding of the mission, value and love of women. “Bringing Adam here on earth is not the direct responsibility of God or even the direct responsibility of Jesus, but the responsibility of Eve, since Eve destroyed Adam in the Garden of Eden. Eve is the one who must give birth to Adam.” Father Moon said this in 1977. As the first woman spiritual leader to headline Madison Square Garden, on July 15, Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon will speak as only a mother can.

Our Tuesday video, Begetting God’s Kingdom, shows that Heaven comes to Earth not through the clouds, but through the womb. “The first stage of new life is in the mother’s womb; this means rebirth through the Blessing,” Father Moon explained, and he continued that providentially, “We are now in the mother’s womb stage worldwide.”

Our Thursday podcast will continue last week’s topic, The Mother of All Living. Our teachings often connect the first man, Adam, with Jesus and the Lord at the Second Advent. But we never connect the first woman, Eve, with the Holy Spirit and the Bride at the Second Advent. In preparation for Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon’s July 15 address at Madison Square Garden, we will make the connection.
