Original Divine Principle WS (ODP) Day 1:Travel

I will be in San Marino over the next week as a participant in a Divine Principle workshop. Have been thinking how to make this a time for me to grow and to connect more deeply to my scripture and to my True Parents.

what we will be studying for the next week

I will do my best to share my thoughts, realisations and experiences. There are over 20 of us from the UK. Please pray for us, especially that we can experience the holy spirit while we are here and be reborn, resurrected and be renewed in our faith.

Before I left I couldn’t find my passport, for long enough to get me wondering that I may not be able to go. As a result I had to consider about whether this work shop was important and what my motivations for taking part were. I then got an inspiration to look and then find my passport under the front passenger seat of our car.

So, I am here now in the hotel, and still trying to force myself to ask questions. Not naturally one to ask myself too many thought provoking questions. But here goes: Why do I need to be here, what are the gaps in my life that need to be evaluated, what do I hope to take away, what do I want and need to learn for my job as a pastor?

This workshop is one True Father is asking all of us to take part in, and he has sent Reverend Yue from Korea to teach in Europe. It is being called the Original Divine Principle workshop.

Here are some of our travel moments today:

    yes, the sit down dinner is long, but generally I am concerned about eating too much good italian food and not exercising enough, I need a personal trainer when I get back top London.
