CARP Witnessing Activity
Bergamo, Italy, 18. December 2016
By Chiara Amigoni
The CARP members of the Bergamo community organized an interesting witnessing activity, which took place in the town centre. Over the two months preceding the Christmas holidays, a small group of 2nd generation had been meeting up twice a week in order to make origami style Christmas decorations, which were made with coloured paper, festive ribbons and lots of creativity. After much effort 300 little Christmas trees were made. All of which were later wrapped up in small packages containing a short message from Father and a leaflet explaining the activities of the CARP group.

Neumühle Training Centre, Bad Camberg, Germany, 8. – 11. December 2016
By David Hanna
From the 8-11 December we held a “24+ Matching and Blessing Preparation Workshop” in our European Seminar Centre, Camberg, Germany. This was a joint venture between the European Second Generation Department and the European Blessed Family Department, led by the ESGD.
One hundred parents and children over twenty-four years old, supported by twenty staff, met to focus on matching and blessing. Many different situations were represented: those who are just coming to consider matching; some who have tried a number of matches but have not found ‘the one’ yet; and others who have had the painful experience of a blessing that has not worked out. - read more

For three days from December 27 to 30 some of the members of Harp met in Lisbon, Barcarena to participate, reflect and deepen the teachings of True Parents.
While still feeling the Christmas spirit, our motto has helped us to create an environment of gratitude for the knowledge we can acquire from the life of True Parents.

Bucharest, Romania, 25. November 2016
By Romania CARP Team
Greetings from Romania!
Last Friday, on the 25th of November 2016, we decided to organize an open discussion about the realistic image of women in our society. We invited CARP members and guests and 3 of our SES members (ShimJung Education System) invited their mothers. So it was both a joyful topic – about the value and image of mothers in our lives, and also a controversial situation as the participants had at times different opinions. We acknowledged that this difference is coming from having various backgrounds and family history and role-gender examples and we tried to listen to the participants from a parental point of view. - read more
