Note: These notes are taken from a Peace TV video clip. They cannot be published as definitive texts and should never be used in the future as an "official" publication of True Father's words. However, they do provide a good idea of the "spirit" of the message. -- Rev. Katsumi Kambashi

Prior to the meeting, True Parents cut the cake to commemorate the 30th Blessing anniversary of 2075 couples, and received flowers from a representative couple.

Mrs. McDevitt read Father's speech from the Sermon of the Rev. Moon volume 53, titled "One God and One World Religion." After the reading, Rev. Yang talked about the Blessing ceremony that took place at the Madison Square Garden 30 years ago. In his address, he positioned the 2075 couples as good ancestors, like Pilgrim Fathers of the new world. He also reported that In Jin Nim invited to New York all of them as well as their children to have a commemorative gathering that day. He said he had received lots of letters from them who all expressed limitless gratitude towards True Parents.

Then Rev. Yang read a report on Kook Jin Nim's arrival the day before in London. According to the report, Kook Jin Nim said at Hoon Dok Hae next day that the ideal world of Cheon Il Guk, which is the conclusive essence of "Divine Principle Original Copy" written by Father in 1952, is the "freedom society," and Kook Jin Nim explained clearly the necessity of practicing the absolute value (절대가치) in all fields of the society that True Parents have advocated. Rev. Yang said Kook Jin Nim would have a meeting with the Korean ambassador for England, and then have a banquet inviting Ministers of Defense and generals of the armies from European countries at the Houses of Parliament in London, where he would also give his address "Strong Korea" to the leaders from all fields.

Mrs. McDevitt sang "올챙이와 개구리" (Tadpoles and Frogs) and "곰세마리." (The same roof Daddy) Rev. Hur sang "울산 아리랑." (Ulsan Arirang) Rev. Hyung Jin Moon sang "Top of the World."

As leaving Father said, "I came to give blessings, not misfortune. ("Thank you Father.") The blessing of blessings is to establish kingdoms of heaven and earth." Then Father told the sister who takes care of Shin Pyeon Nim to sing, and she sang "진도 아라랑." (Progress Arirang) Then Rev. Yang and all sang "고향무정," (Heartless home) which concluded the meeting that day.
