“A Victorious Year”
CARP Italy

By Elena Chirulli

Even if this year brought some difficulties in everyday life due to Covid and restrictions, 2020 was still a victorious year full of activities that saw CARP ITALIA protagonist of numerous initiatives including cultural events live musical beautiful performances, but also online meetings on various topics, European meetings, CARP talks, games, and quizzes. Numerous spectators at the events: families, fans, academics, and new guests. Making the list would be really long, we limit ourselves to pointing out the last two activities carried out in 2020. The summer period saw the launch of the CARP CHALLENGE 2020, a challenge addressed to young people that lasted a month, on motivation, growth, commitment, and training of the character. 

The first classified of the CARP CHALLENGE 2020 was Rebecca Stoica (of which you can see the photo in the attachment) who was awarded a beautiful 500 ml double-layer thermal bottle (hot and cold drinks) with the CARP symbol and the diploma of merit. Second place was won in equal measure by Cristina Arcadi and Stella Piperis. In third place Alessia Preciutti. Our winners (2nd and 3rd place) all won a fantastic wooden and steel keychain with the CARP symbol and the diploma. All participants received a certificate of participation. The CARP BOOK COFFEE (of which you can see the attached photos) started a month ago offers the reading of the autobiography "Mother of Peace" in Italian, a much-appreciated meeting open to all, which takes place online every week. You can stay updated on our activities by following us on Facebook and Instagram.

Online HARP Winter Workshop
December 28 - 31, 2020

Artūr Karagezian, Ola Brzyska, Sandra Skrodzki & Andranik Karagezian 

Perhaps with some disappointment this year the annual HARP winter workshop held in Glanow had to be moved into the online space, a challenge we never wished to face, but one we chose to tackle nonetheless. The appropriately titled Winter Challenge 2020: Take Away the Grey, held between December 28th - 31st, gave space for Blessed Children across Europe and the Middle East to connect, reflect, set goals, laugh, play games, challenge themselves, and take matters into their own hands in telling their 2020 story with less of the grey that many of us felt confined by. Highlighting this workshop, the challenge day had all teams walking the extra mile, completing sets of challenges all throughout the day, many times outdoing themselves in offering so much more than the challenges originally intended of them. A Facebook group was created as a place to share, connect and inspire each other when we were not altogether connected on Zoom. More than anything, the workshop became a testament to the resilience, creativity, and passion of the inspired and connection-seeking Blessed Children of our region, and we cannot wait to finally meet in person very soon.

Here are some testimonies from participants and team leaders:

“It was a really wonderful experience that really gives you the possibility to think and reflect about the new year, about last year, to, first of all, go in yourself trying to really meet God during this time.”
Jonasz, Team Leader

“I participated in this workshop, it was very very nice and the perfect ending for this year. I’m so grateful having met so many people I’ve never met, thank you to everyone.”
Laurene, Participant

“I’m very happy that I took part in this workshop. It was very special to me to see so many new faces, meet so many nice, kind people and hear from my elder brothers and sisters. I really feel we could end this year with very positive energy and start the new year with positive energy. It was very colorful, funny and a very good experience, thank you.”
Talia, Participant

“This was a very interesting workshop. I think it cannot be better online. The only more exciting and better is the offline workshop and I think you’ve achieved everything that you could so I think it was very good. It was interesting to do team leading for the first time. I’m very grateful for this and I hope that we can go to an offline workshop.”
Marko, Team Leader

“You’ve done it guys, you’ve taken away the grey. These past days have been quite fun to spend time with you guys, 2nd gens, with my team.”
Mindaugas, Participant

Anything was possible this year with a bit of creativity, and this workshop was the proof of this.”
Agnieszka, Team Leader

CARP Online Public Lecture

By Martine Masner

On Friday, December 11th, Matthew Huish, the vice-president of FFWPU UK gave a presentation for contacts and newcomers (over 70 participants) on the topic Hacking Into My True Self. He explored “how we have inherited and acquired many internal mechanisms by which we view and respond to the world, which mask our true selves”. He invited the audience to “recognize and acknowledge these algorithms, appreciating their power over our lives, especially considering how big tech is currently using their own algorithms to manipulate us politically, economically and beyond”. Matthew Huish approached the topic using a contemporary understanding of physiology, neurology and psychology to draw the conclusion that we need to “enter a mystical state”. He introduced Rev. Sun Myung Moon’s understanding of God, that “God will answer you from the original root of your mind”.

CARP EUME Public Online Event
November 13, 2020

By Martine Masner, EUME Witnessing Department Director

The CARP public online event took place on Friday, November 13. This event is meant for new guests. The presentation was given by Prof. Emilio Asti from the University of Milano, Italy. The topic was The Role of Students and the contribution of today’s youth in building a better world. Prof. Asti exposed the limitation of today’s educational system where both, teachers and students, are struggling and experience their limitations. He explained that only together in unity with both professors and students we can find solutions and move toward a new global ideal. We need to unite all kinds of people, from different backgrounds and faiths. He also emphasized that in any case we need to first change ourselves, and he promoted events of our founder Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon like Peace Starts with Me and the Rallies of Hope!

On October 24th 2020 24 young adults and 12 children gathered at the Chamarande Training Center for a One-Day Youth Retreat. The morning was filled with guidance and creative activities for the children. The young adults heard testimonies and took time to share about the topics of gratitude, forgiveness, compassion and responsibility. For lunch some children enjoyed grilling their sausages around a campfire. In the afternoon participants from all ages went for nice walk in the forest. Helped by their elders the children had a treasure hunt trying to find natural items like leaves, flowers or snails. The day ended with a service project to improve the Chamarande Training Center and some football between kids and adults. It was a nice retreat to gather young people of all ages.
