Preparations for the WCSF 2005
We are pleased to announce the outline for the 6th phase of the Blessing of 400 Million Couples for the substantial and complete settlement of Cheon Il Guk, to be held during the World Culture and Sports Festival 2005. All leaders of each nation should fully understand the following guidelines below and make their utmost effort in preparing.
On May 5, 2004, the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind declared Ssang Hab Shib Seung Il. As of this day, the Era Before the Coming of Heaven, which is the era of Satan's dominion, was cleared away to make way for the advent of the era of God's Kingdom centered on true love. This day was an occasion for a great providential transition upon which blessed families can finally make a new beginning as the citizens of God's nation based upon the standard at which Adam and Eve would have been blessed before the Fall centering on the good God as the Lord. On December 26, 2004, True Parents introduced the original standard for the blessing and based upon this standard they held a special blessing for the second generation. In this way, through the blessing, True Parents are restoring the blessing ideal for the original world of creation. In accordance with these great providential changes, we are at a time of substantially reinstating the circumstances and environment prior to the Fall. At this time, as we develop our blessing activities we should most of all make effort in seeking the original mindset of creation and principle-based methodologies.
Now in the Era After the Coming of Heaven, with a new mindset, FFWPU Korea is seeking to fulfill the blessing ideal in the original world of creation. To this end they have developed a "Blessing paradigm from the viewpoint of the Principle" and are working to contribute to the fulfillment of the internal and external ideal of Cheon Il Guk. This paradigm seeks to realize value and increase the actual influence of the Blessing, thereby establishing a substantial basis for Cheon Il Guk in fulfilling the internal and external ideals of the blessing. Internally, we should not damage the identity of the blessing. Its value should be taught, and realized in our lifestyle. Externally, the blessing should gain substantial influence in the society, nation and world. To this end, we should adopt methods for increasing member participation in faith and for maximizing the contact points for our participation in society. This can be seen as a method of establishing education for faith while creating beautiful, happy marriages at the same time.
During the Cheon Il Guk Leaders Assembly 2005, among the agendas for 2005, a proposal was made and adopted for "realizing the value of the blessing and increasing its influence." In this, FFWPU Korea will systematically guide other nations in enhancing our capacities and in drawing the participation of the other nations in "realizing the value of the blessing and increasing its influence" so that we may fulfill the internal and external ideals of the blessing.
The World Culture and Sports Festival 2005 will be held from the end of July to the beginning of August under the theme, "The World as One Family; the Brotherhood of Humankind" at the gymnastics stadium in the Seoul Olympic Park, the Little Angels Performing Arts Center and other venues, with the participation of representatives and members from 185 nations worldwide.
The central event WCSF 2005 will be the International Marriage Blessing Ceremony. This will be a festival presided over by our True Parents for the internal reconciliation and harmony of the global human community, transcending ideological differences, national borders, and the walls between race and cultures.
The goal for the 6th phase of the International Blessing of 400 Million Couples is to have 3,000 couples made up of single blessing candidates participate in the ceremony.
