Multiply the Blessing
Pastor T.L. Barrett Jr. and Archbishop G. Augustus Stallings
This letter was given to all the participants in the 144,000 Blessing.
Dear ACLC Participants in the 144,000 Clergy Couples Blessing: On behalf of the American Clergy Leadership Conference, we would like to express our heartfelt thanks and appreciation for your support and participation in the historic Marriage Blessing Ceremony on Saturday, April 27, 2002 at the Sheraton National Hotel in Arlington, Virginia. Your presence contributed significantly in sending a message across America and around the world that clergy are willing to "Stand Up for Family and Save the Nation."
Your commitment to fidelity and permanency in marriage have now become the bedrock for ushering in a new age of Godís providence as we reach beyond denominational and racial lines to "rebuild the family, restore the community, renew the nation and the world. As a "new creation" you now play an indispensable role in the work of restoration. Godís original ideal of creation is within our reach as we seek to restore the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.
The same spirit that propelled and motivated our work must now be passed on to our children as they come forward by having their marriages blessed and sanctified before God. Our legacy and gift to our younger generation must be blessed marriages that will lead them to do the same as we have done.
On Wednesday, July 3, 2002, the Rev. Dr. and Mrs. Sun Myung Moon, along with clergy representatives of every major world religion, will gather once again at the Sheraton National Hotel to confer Godís blessing on Marriage to young couples.
We kindly ask that you would encourage your offspring and young adult members of your congregation who are already married or who are engaged and intend on marrying in the near future to join in this historic event. God is surely preparing His people to go even higher in claiming the earth as the Kingdom of our God and His Christ.
