Sheraton National Hotel
Hoon Dok Hae
At 5:00 AM on Tuesday morning, True Parents held Hoon Dok Hae on the 15th floor of the Sheraton National Hotel in Arlington, Virginia. In attendance were Rev. Jeong Eog Yu, Rev. Yong Seok Song, Dr. Peter Kim, Dr. Sun Jo Hwang, Dr. Chang Shik Yang, Archbishop Ki Hoon Kim, Dr. Dong Moon (Douglas) Joo, Rev. Larry Krishnek, Rev. Randy Francis, Rev. Carl Swearson, Mr. Tom McDevitt, Mr. Howard Self, Rev. Angelika Selle and others.
At the beginning of Hoon Dok Hae, Father asked Dr. Joo to report about the translation of True Father’s autobiography, As A Peace-Loving Global Citizen, into English. Dr. Joo reported about the overall process that has taken place so far, including his visit to Gimm-Young Publishers in Korea. He explained the issues that are involved in the printing of an English version of the book and spoke about his vision of an improved version of True Father’s autobiography for future publication in English.
After Dr. Joo’s speech, Father asked Wonju McDevitt to read the full text of Owner of Peace and Owner of Lineage, Father’s speech in East Garden on July 7, 2009.
Later, Father asked members to ask questions about the content of Owner of Peace and Owner of Lineage. He asked Rev. Yu to respond to questions, with help from the other Korean leaders. No one asked questions, so Father read the speech he gave on June 1, 2009 at the COEX Convention Center in Seoul, Korea, and read it. Hoon Dok Hae ended around 10:00 AM.
