The Words of the Goldberg Family
Small group study of "As a Peace Loving Global Citizen" in the Founder's Room from 9 am -- 9:30 am.
The current year 2010 draws to a close, now is a good time to pause and reflect on the past, make new determinations and plans for the coming year and just be grateful for what we have been given.
All too often the tradition of this world has been having wild parties and getting drunk at the end of the year. Yet, Jesus was clear in his statement that "My Kingdom is not of this world".
As God's Son, Jesus challenges us all to consider this question: "What are the things that make for true inner peace? "
We are looking at the end of the first decade of the 21st Century. What have we been doing these past 10 years? September 11, 2001 changed our perspective of the world forever. True Parents' immediate response was to hold peace seminars and conferences to bring together those who might see each other as enemies to the table of reconciliation. Many of us recall attending such a seminar where we heard testimonies from those who witnessed "Ground Zero" first hand. It was chilling and disturbing, and yet in our hearts and minds as Unificationists, our determination not to give in to hatred or vengeance was clear and unmistakable. That is the example we have seen from True Father and Mother and that is the standard to which we aspire every day of our lives.
God is always looking for a way to express true love through each and every one of us. Let us take this time to reflect on how much we allowed this to happen in the last decade and let us look forward with confidence to the eternal splendor of the limitless light of love that eminates ever stronger from the throne of God and Our True Parents to us and through us as we move on toward January 13, 2013.
Happy New Year.

Ballroom Dance Intensive: January 7-9, 2011 Register Online Now "Dance is an expression of the universal language." -- Rev. In Jin Moon On August 9, 2009, Rev. In Jin Moon stated in her sermon: "The great thing about ballroom dancing is it's so cultural.... Everyone has formal ways to approach the partner. How wonderful it is in this 'ice age of the heart' for a young man to approach a young woman, saying, 'May I have this dance?' instead of saying 'Want to grind on the dance floor?'… I think it's a healthy way for young people, especially kids going through their difficult adolescent years, to approach the opposite sex in a respectful, beautiful, and enjoyable way, for each other to appreciate the partner and the distance between the partners, as well as the closeness…If you can find a constructive and beautiful outlet where they can learn etiquette and social protocol, and at the same time have a great time, I think it's a beautiful thing."
The Ballroom Dance Ministry was founded by Ms. Ariana Shin Sun Moon in the autumn of 2009, with the inspiration to share the beauty of dance, respectful etiquette between men and women, and build closeness in the community.
The purpose of this Ballroom Dance Intensive is to train inspired leaders from around the country who are committed to sharing the vision and mission of Lovin' Life Ministries' Ballroom Dance to the communities they come from. The intensive will cover advanced steps in the waltz, swing and cha cha; teach the methods of dance instruction; and impact the structure and quality of ballroom dance nationwide. Rev. Moon also hopes that all the parents, husbands and wives, would also be attending these classes. "Sometimes the day-to-day difficulties can leave us feeling isolated, even in a marriage, and lonely and unappreciated. But I hope with different programs like this, not only can the young people enjoy themselves, but this might be an opportunity for married couples to enjoy another spark in their life or find a common hobby or love they can share together."
Miilhan Stephens will be giving a 45-minute lecture on The Lasting Imprint this Sunday and every Sunday after church in the Korean Room. All congregation and their guests are welcome to attend.
The next Back on Track/Renew, Refresh workshop for Blessed Children will be held in the New York area on January 13-16. Contact Randy Francis.
