A new 40 Day workshop begins
today for the women of the 1800, 74 and 118 Couple blessings.
This is a central providence for all Blessed Central Families and is a key for
the fulfillment of your family as a True Family. Not only for our own
purification but also the liberation and blessing of our ancestors occurs
through this process that allows them to fully support us. From Mar. 13 ~
April 21, 2004, the 6000, 2075 couple wives should attend. Here is a
testimony from our sister who had a breakthrough toward becoming one culture
with our sisters from Korea and
An Experience of Heart
I was in Chungpyung, attending the 40
days workshop for blessed wives together with the 777 couples. As a matter of
fact, I was the only non Asian in the workshop. I am French and became 777
through reblessing. When I left, there were already three 1800 sisters who came
in advance for their workshop, so I believe, when you come, you will not find
yourself in my situation.
Father emphasized that there is no more Korean,
Japanese or American Culture, etc. and that was my challenge during this
particular workshop.As you know, we all speak different languages and Father
told us for years that we should all learn Korean. Since I couldn't form a group
with just myself, I had the choice between the Korean and the Japanese group and
it became evident to me that I should choose the former. Luckily, a sister from
a later Blessing was allowed to join us, so we were two, reading in English
during their HDH in the same room as the Koreans.
As you know, not only
because of language, it is not always easy to find harmony between us. Having
already graduated from the "school of hard knocks" (according to Heung Jin Nim),
this challenge was not going to discourage me. I used my (extremely limited)
Korean as best as I could and managed the reading of one page of powerpoint
presentation of Divine Principle in hangul for which I received warm applause.
Also, for the 9th Anniversary of the Chungpyung Providence, the group
presented a Korean dance in which I was included. Someone even told me I was the
best dancer! I think I probably was the most original.
As a whole, I must say it was a deep
experience of acceptance and love that I can never forget.
