Japanese Cultural Event

Japanese Culture was showcased at an event held at the FFWPU training center on Selief Lane on 5-6-2017. 

25 members and 25 guests came.

Guests were treated to;

  • Japanese finger food as well as food cooked by young families,
  • Participation in a ceremonial Japanese Tea Ceremony
  • Origami folding instruction,
  • Oriental Caligraphy made to order
  • and educational displays of elaborately ornate ancient Japanese household shrines.
  • There was also an opportunity for ladies to have their photograph taken wearing a traditional Japanese Kimono.

 

The emcee introduced the proceedings by explaining the origins and purpose of the FFWPU.

 

Up until now, it has been very difficult for people to come together and transcend their differences, but in 1936 Sun Myung Moon who at the time was 16 years old, was asked by Jesus Christ to find a worldview that could embrace the diversity of every kind of people on the planet.

Over the next 9 years, SMM studied Gods word and was able to converse spiritually with Jesus and the saints of other religions. Eventually, the most difficult questions that thinkers have wrestled with became clear.

The most important truth he discovered was that for thousands of years God has maintained in His heart the idea of human beings becoming His perfected sons and daughters living harmoniously together in an ideal world. Sadly His efforts through saints and His son Jesus were not complete, leaving both God and the world with incredible suffering, grief and pain and humanity unable to receive their rightful inheritance.

Even though today millions of people worldwide are living in accordance with this new worldview there are still barriers and problems to be overcome before God can rest.  It is because we understand Gods suffering that FFWPU members feel compelled to let people know and experience that God has a strategy to overcome barriers and solve problems at all levels.

If politicians and governments continue to resort to armies and weapons, the future will not be bright because that is not the way that God works.

God’s strategy is to work with families who are committed to raising children of conscience and true love.

For example, by attending a cultural event like this we are demonstrating to our children that the world can become one global family under God.
