France: One Day Divine Principle Workshop

fr-dp-1206 (5)

By FFWPU France: Most participants arrived at 10:30 am (of December 5, 2015) for the start of the first lecture, few others at the beginning of the afternoon…

We had a good and thorough lecture of the first chapter given by Didier Guignard in the morning, which brought about a great discussion…

Then we shared lunch prepared by Asae and our Japanese missionaries. There was a good atmosphere, but we had to shorten discussion and to prepare rapidly for a lecture on the Fall wonderfully presented by Claudine.

That also brought lengthy discussion and since we were already quite advance on our schedule; so I decided to cancel the fourth lecture and then our brother Medard gave a deep third last lecture on the Principle of Restoration which captured the attention of all in the audience. It was over 5 pm already, some had to leave, so I just presented our programs, especially the coming UPF conference on the 12 of December…

Some stayed on and we kept sharing until way over stayed over 8 pm with three guests, Madeleine, Anicet and Tom, and we shared the remaining of the curried rice of our lunch!

It was globally a good workshop, but there are a many points to discuss for a better success of our activities; the main point, according to me, is that all lecturers should be concentrated on the one purpose of teaching: to give the conclusion! So we should give shorter lectures and leave more time for discussion. With a fourth lecture on the providence in history, we would have been able to let them know about our time, about the True Parents, to some extent; also we should give a better view of our movement, on introduction and conclusion, and show them how they can participate….
