Hoon Dok Hae
Cheon Jeong Gung
144th Ahn Shi Il
First Reading of the Pyunghwa Hoonkyeong
Translation of unofficial notes taken by the Unification Church History Compilation Committee
(Right after pledge service Father holds a booklet and says)
This is the Pyunghwa Hoonkyung. The peace messages are the Pyunghwa Hoonkyung — the bible for teaching people.”
Summary of Father’s words:
Reports should be one that presents a task and hope that we should have in this new times centering on God’s will rather than giving the same old report.
Pyunghwa Hoonkyung! Say it. (Pyunghwa Hoonkyung) It’s a bible that teaches peace. That’s the best way in interpreting its name.
From now you must make effort in creating your own book. The one God gave you is not enough. You have to remember how much God went through; if you stand not as an owner but as someone who is borrowing this book you are no better than a beggar. Everything in this book and the value of this book is more than twice the fixed price. You should store all publications and use it as material in teaching your descendants. If you read from my speeches in prayer you will know when I gave that speech. You should be able to explain these speeches yourself to anybody.
In the future we must have ambassadors for peace in the kindergarten level, and also in secondary schools.
When you come to Hoon Dok Hae you should train your members of the family so that they can wake up before 5:00 a.m. to prepare; if the mother or father is not there the children should take turns in doing Hoon Dok Hae. Then this can become your textbook. You should not just listen to it. Do you understand?
When going to Hoon Dok Hae you should wake up your children and dress them even if they are crying. You should tell them that you are going to the headquarters to a higher place to do Hoon Dok Hae. You have to quickly begin educating your children centering on heaven while they are young.
In the future, this booklet will book a textbook that is used by the people. They will be made to take a test and pass.
Now you are entering into a system. If you do activities on your one and lead a life individually you have nothing to do with the Unification Church. You have to be connected to a system yet as an individual be able to educate people and raise them. Then you can be consistent in going the way of a patriot in a nation, and the familial way of a saint and divine son or daughter until you reach the heavenly world.
Once the revolutionary era of a new civilization in the Pacific Rim comes times will change. We have to have a system. Don’t do witnessing on your own. Create a club in doing witnessing activities.
