Join the 21-Day Peace Challenge

On July 15, we filled Madison Square Garden for Peace Starts With Me, a wonderful event where we could all share in the love of God as one family.
Over 10,000 people took a stand for creating peace every day of our lives, starting with ourselves, our relationships, and neighborhoods, and reaching all the way out to our nation and the world.

True Mother shared a message about the history of God’s work for peace, the world’s dire need for true parents who can guide us to live as true brothers and sisters, and how America can be a leader in restoring peace on earth, starting with each of us. If we practice true love everywhere we go, shine our light to the world, and live for the sake of others, God’s peaceful home on earth is not far away.

1. BRING A FULLY CHARGED CELLPHONE AND EARBUDS

True Mother will be giving her keynote speech, “Peace Starts With Me” in Korean. We will be listening to a live translation (provided in English, Japanese, and Spanish) through a conference call system, so make sure to bring a fully charged cell phone and earbuds!

2. EAT BEFORE THE EVENT

The event will last two to three hours, so it is suggested you eat before coming to “Peace Starts With Me,” so that you can comfortably enjoy the spiritual message and inspirational singing.

3. USE THE RESTROOM BEFORE THE EVENT

You do not want to miss any of True Mother’s message, so we recommend going to the bathroom before she begins to speak.

4. DOORS OPEN AT 2PM

Since the doors to Madison Square Garden will be opening at 2PM on July 15, we recommend that you arrive at the venue around 1:45PM. We expect the event to go until around 5:00PM. The doors to the entrance of Madison Square Garden are located on 32nd St and 7th Ave in New York, NY.
