ODP Day 4: remembering why I joined the Unification Church

Listening to the Divine Principle all day long has reminded me how our scripture casts a bright light on my life putting everything into context. God’s word is a judgement, but at the same time refreshing. I guess because it is systematic the Principle makes life clear and shows me when my priorities are in […]
