After True Parents and other True Family members entered the stage, Rev. Kwak as the emcee guided all the participants though out the service. After the service, Father mentioned that it was a day of liberation; and from that day on, we should take the new Cheon Il Guk holy salt and Cheon Il Guk holy wine with us wherever we go to sanctify and blessed everyone. Now, those without a united mind and body will not able to participate in such events. Father asked all members to be holy salted and to drink holy wine before attending the next section of the event.
There were thirty thousand members in various halls and buildings in the Chung Pyung complex for the King of Peace Crowning Ceremony of Cosmic Unity, which was held at 10 a.m. on True Parents' birthday.
The emcee was Rev. Hwang Sun-jo, international president of the FFWPU, who spoke a bit before the event began.
In his speech Father said, "Now, carrying this heavenly message with us, we must depart to spread seeds. Each of us should become a creator of this new world, as we go out to plant the seeds of true life and true love and represent heaven's family. Do not be so foolish as to scatter your seeds into the air, to be carried off by the winds of secular vanity and immorality. Seek the humblest and lowest position. Plant your seeds in the deepest and richest, fertile soil. Break down the walls between races, abolish the national borders and bear the fruit of cross-cultural, interracial marriages that go beyond religion and nation. Let us do mighty works to uphold God's true lineage eternally. The providence of interracial, cross-cultural marriage shall elevate the Mongolian race and all humankind through the true love of the eternal God."
At 5 p.m. a banquet was held for True Parents Birthday Celebration and the King of Peace Crowning Ceremony of Cosmic Unity with the participation of 900 leaders from around the world.
Dr. Kim Hyo-yool (Peter Kim), as the master of ceremonies, gave the opening remarks which were followed by prayers and congratulatory remarks from VIPs.
In his short speech, father said, "As we enter the Era after the Coming of Heaven, all human beings should acquire a character of true love, as the basic condition to be registered in the Peace Kingdom, the New Heaven and New Earth that is on its way. For this to happen, each one needs to be reborn through three revolutions. That is, one should be reborn as a true parent, a true teacher and a true owner through the revolution of indemnity, the revolution of conscience and the revolution of heart."
The entertainment held outside in front of the prayer hall, so True Parents and all VIPs left the main hall to watch the beautiful entertainment especially offered for this event by people from around the world.
