By FFWPU Portugal: On December 27-29, 2015 Portuguese HARP organized a three day Christmas workshop including Sunday school kids.
This time the motto was “Step by step: Strong and Pure” and each of the three days had a special goal: 1st day -» Growing up in heart; 2nd day -» The Power of Prayer; 3th day -» To know my value. As this workshop was the last of this year we decided to have some time to reflect about what we did during this year and how we can improve our life of faith to next year of 2016.
The daily program included stretching time; prayer and hoondokhwe; lectures from the elders concerning the main theme; True Parents life videos; various activities such as games, cultural times, entertainments, finishing the day with a meditation evening prayer and also a burning ceremony with letters that they Written.
We had 16 kids participating, from 7 to 17 years old, divided into groups for some special tasks (lectures, washing up and tidying).
As usual they were very enthusiastic but not only by the entertainment times and being with each other’s, but also by the content of the lectures and guidance time they received with a very positive and inspiring attitude, even asking more questions about the themes.
We finished last day with a party, special songs prepared and essayed during the workshop and group picture, with the hope that we could gave them a little bit more of heavenly tools to well prepare themselves to be better and spiritual growing.
We wish you all a very Happy New Year 2016
