Dear Leaders and Blessed Central Families,
Due to the scheduling of the next pilgrimage to Israel from March 27 through April 5, the Special Category Workshop for Second Generation who have fallen has been rescheduled, and will take place from April 15 - 17. Please consider and distribute the updated MEMO below and attached.
TO: Regional, State and Local Leaders, for all Blessed Central Families and Second Generation
FROM: Dr. Chang Shik Yang, Rev. Michael Jenkins, Rev. Phillip Schanker
DATE: February 11, 2005
RE: Schedule Change: April 15 - 17, 2005 Special Workshop for Second Generation who have Fallen
To Second Generation members 18 and above who are not yet matched or Blessed:
The Blessing is given by the authority of True Parents on a 6000-year foundation of indemnity, including the sacrifice of Jesus, countless martyrs and our Parents' own victorious course. Children born from the God-centered union of a Blessed Couple are eternally precious to God. Some of those young people have tragically fallen. While the eternal value of a Blessed child cannot simply be erased, the course and responsibility of youth in this category is unique, and needs to be understood.
Following the crowning of the King and Queen of Peace, Father expressed the desire to embrace and provide a pathway for Second Generation who have fallen. In successful workshops in the USA and Europe in 2004, as well as at Chung Pyung Training Center, a number of youth and parents felt the unchanging love of God and found hope in a clear process of restoration, as well as a path to the Blessing. A number of couples have already been matched as a result of this process.
The next special workshop for members of the Second Generation who have fallen, and/or their parents is planned for the weekend of April 15th - 17th, 2005 in a private location in the New York City area. Please see details below.
The situation and appropriate path to the Blessing for this category will be discussed, and we will do our best to answer any and all questions. We will help those in this situation to network with others, and find opportunities for matching from the same category. We will always respect and maintain your privacy as well.
The workshop will be led by Rev. Phillip Schanker and Mrs. Hiromi Stephens, Co-Director of the Blessed Family Department. Those who wish to attend should contact Mrs. Stephens privately to learn the location and schedule details, and receive a registration form.
Youth in this special category, as well as their parents, are welcome to attend. Parents of a child in this category can also attend by themselves.
We look forward to hearing from those young people who wish to find a clear path toward the Blessing, or simply to reconcile the past and search for their purpose and destiny.
