CIG Leaders’s Assembly 2021 - EUME Presentation

By Dr Katsumi Otsuka

Dearest True Mother, the Begotten Daughter from Heaven, and leaders of the world, I want to first express my deep thanks for organizing the online CIG Leaders Assembly.

Our region Europe and the Middle East is the birthplace of major providential religions and cultures such as Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. The European and the Middle Eastern cultures are extremely influential over the world in many fields such as ideology, religion, politics, economy, culture, and so forth. Therefore, it must be our mission to bring unity between the Western and Eastern world and European and African people for realizing the Chon Il Guk. The growing number of Islamic and African people in Europe, I think, is a very providential phenomenon. In this regard, the idea of the Heavenly Parents Holy Community is especially necessary for our region.

Observance of True Parents’ Day and Heavenly Parent’s Day in 2021

By Dr. Michael Balcomb

Dear Family,

Earlier this morning, we successfully concluded the Cheon Il Guk leaders’ meeting for 2021 together with True Mother and leaders from all around the world. We had more than 600 families from our region joining the final session by ZOOM even though it was as usual in the middle of the night. Thank you all!

Recently, some of you have asked us for clarification about the planned observance of True Parents’ Day and Heavenly Parent’s Day in 2021. As you will have seen from the beautiful Cheon Il Guk calendar prepared by our EUME team, these Holy Days will be observed on the same day as True Parents’ Holy Wedding, April 27, 2021.

If you turn to that page in the calendar you will see that all the details are there. On that day we will observe:

Inaugural meeting launching Heavenly Parent's Holy Community in Israel
Jerusalem, December 30, 2020

On Dec 31st, 2020 some 40 participants have gathered over zoom to launch our Israeli chapter of HPHC. Mrs. Liel Weiler Hill - FFWPU Israel's Secretary-General, gave a concise explanation about the meaning of this special event. The event unfolded with prayers, and greetings from Jewish, Moslem, Christian, and Druze leaders representing the Religious, Academic, Political, and Civil Society fields.

Special greetings were given by both Mr. & Mrs. Angelucci – Sub Regional Presidents of HPHC in the Middle East. Their message was followed by an excerpt from our Beloved True Mother's speech emphasizing the approach of our Heavenly Community - Forgive Love and Unite.

The various speakers, as if connected invisibly were all expressing their deep gratitude to our True Mother for this historical initiative. One common point was that all are wishing to rise out of the present world crisis with greater appreciation to the precious lives our Heavenly Parent granted us. During the event, we had several lovely intermezzos of music performed by Jerusalem's citizens as well as the exquisite singing of our "Little Angels" dance troupe.

We were also delighted to have an opportunity to encourage all participants to get their copy of "Mother of Peace" in Hebrew and to get involved in our campaign to deliver the books to local decision-makers.

Indeed, this solemn event was a beautiful way to conclude the year 2020 and prepare for the coming year of 2021.

Exposition of True Father's Centenary
Madrid, Spain, December 11, 2020

By Maryvonne Jamois

On December 11th, we had the inauguration of the exposition of True Father´s centenary with a public lecture “As a peace-loving global citizen “ given by Armando Lozano, explaining some points of his autobiography and what has been his motivation throughout his entire life. A few guests came some friends and some new people.

We distributed around 2500 posters in the streets of Madrid.

We organized a second lecture on December 17th, given by Manuel Campillo. A person from Angola whose parents are from FFWPU and living in Lisboa saw the advertisement in the street and came. He is a very strong Christian.

Another person who has been participating in Carp Convention in London in 1990, also participated in the lecture.

We are very grateful for this opportunity finally at the end of the year to be able to show True Father´s life in the city of Madrid and we hope that even though they did not come, some people may be attracted by His life and works.

Online Lecture on the Life and Works of Sun Myung Moon and Hak Ja Han

By Martine Masner

To support the various exhibitions about True Parents’ life and works that are going on around Europe and True Mother’s Rallies of Hope, we created a series of four evening online presentations on the life and works of Sun Myung Moon and Hak Ja Han over one month time from November 10 to December 1, and brought together an average of 120 participants. The main lecturer was Dr. David Hanna from the UK. We received lots of good feedback and one member even brought 14 guests to the lectures. We think that these presentations were very important to witness about True Parents, especially to new people that are joining our online events and need to understand more about who True Parents are.

Rally of Hope in Italy "Christmas is Love"
December 20, 2020

By Giuseppe & Elisabetta Cali

Sponsored by the FFPWU Italy, an interreligious gathering was held, to promote the establishment of the “Heavenly Parent’s Holy Community” in Italy, on December 20th, 2020, by ZOOM.

This Christmas will be remembered as a very sad one, especially because families are not allowed to meet, and even religious services are restricted to a few. In a country like Italy, based on family culture and relationships, the discomfort is widespread.

Our intention is to make people feeling that God is close to us, especially in times of suffering and His love is greater now than ever. With this awareness, a real rebirth will be soon possible for the entire humankind. We called Christian leaders and representatives of other religions to join us in testifying of God’s Love, as expressed particularly by Jesus and our True Parents.

Gukson Capone, our new Vice President of the South Region, a 2nd generation young brother did a good job as MC and this was his first public effort as such.
