Four Day Divine Principle Seminar for Albanian Ambassadors for Peace

Petrovac, Montenegro, 27. - 30. April 2017

By Albanian HQ
The experiences of the Divine Principle Seminars for Ambassadors for Peace in Albania are becoming more and more rich and exiting each time. The last one we did this one was about 5 months ago, last year in November, and it was then when we felt strongly that these seminars should continue and reach out to more Abel Type Ambassadors for Peace who are ready to embrace the content of the Divine Principle.
This time 31 Ambassadors for Peace and VIPs, mostly from Albania and 3 from Kosovo, responded to the invitation of Universal Peace Federation and Family Federation for World Peace to attend a four day Divine Principle seminar from 27th - 30th of April 2017 and gathered at the Palace Hotel at the small beautiful town of Petrovac in Montenegro. - read more

UPF Peace Principle:

God is Parent to Mankind
Hamburg, Germany, 4. March 2017

The theologian, Catholic priest and Ambassador for Peace, Heinz Krcek speaks in Hamburg on: God's Way to mankind.
The best pre-requisite for world peace in our time is the understanding that we are a global family. Therefore, the Hamburg branch of UPF invited the highly-qualified speaker and peace activist Heinz Krcek from Austria to speak in the far north about the theoretical foundations for peace.
A short review of the background of our speaker reveals his connection with this topic. Heinrich (Heinz) Krcek, was born in 1938, and grew up in Vienna in a Catholic family. He attended a humanist high school, and after his leaving examinations initially studied for four semesters electrical engineering. He then entered a Benedictine monastery and completed a study of theology at the religious university in Beuron on the Danube, in Germany. - read more

Lecture on Quantum Physics and the End of the (classic) World

Paris, France, 3. April 2017

By Didier Guignard
The topic of this 32th Club Science was: "Quantum Physics and the end of the (classic) world!"
The lecturer was Professor Jean Staune, a famous French philosopher of science who has diplomas in Mathematics, Computer Science, Paleontology and Business. He is teaching at HEC, the most famous Business School in France.
We had a record participation of 54 people with a very exciting lecture and debate. Mr. Jean Staune showed us that, with quantum physics, a materialistic viewpoint of the world becomes obsolete and can only be replaced by "science-fiction materialism" like Everett Multiverse.
He expressed that the ultimate Reality can only be something "prior to the subject-object division"
All participants were very inspired and emphasized the ability of Pr. Jean Staune to explain in simple terms such a difficult matter.

The Origin of Monotheism
Espace Culture & Peace, Lyon, 26. March 2017

By Jean Paul Chaudy
Abraham is not only the origin of Monotheism but also of the conflict between Jews, Muslims and Christians, a conflict that has been going on for more than 4,000 years. If one wants to find solutions to this bloody confrontation one must understand its root and treat the cause. It all began when Abraham expelled Hagar and their son Ishmael.
This conference allowed the participants to study the problem, but also to address the solutions already proposed by Jacob to reconcile with his brother Esau. Then observe the work of God through women like Rebecca and Tamar who put their lives in danger to advance the Providence of Salvation.
Peace Ambassadors need to understand the tools they can use to help put an end to the conflicts that surround them. This study by Abraham, Jacob and Tamar is one such tool. Everyone must learn how to use them effectively.

The father, Hassan Mescho who had been a lawyer in his homeland, set off in 2013 on an adventurous and arduous journey. After travelling through the Balkans, he finally reached Germany where he applied for refugee status. Eventually he was joined by his wife and four children.

What Connects the Religions of the World?
Linz, Austria, March 2017

The Peace Academy Linz and Universal Peace Federation Upper Austria hosted three events on the theme:
What connects the religions of the world? The former Catholic ecumenical theologian Hans Küng initiated the idea of a „Global Ethic.“  In his book, he recognises and describes that the ethic principles of all religions are very similar and can be summarised by two main statements and four ethical laws.
Mag. Maria Pammer, UPF-Upper Austria, greeted the guests and guided through the program. - read more
