The Family Federation for World Peace and Unification, Queensland celebrated the 4th Anniversary of Rev. Sun Myung Moon’s Seungwha with a family fishing day at picturesque Shorncliffe Pier on Moreton Bay, on August 28, 2016

Throughout Rev. Moon’s life he invested physically and spiritually in the Ocean Providence. At many critical moments in providential history True Father spent long hours in all kinds of weather setting spiritual conditions through fishing investment and prayer. It is fitting that he be remembered through a fishing event.

This year instead of the tournament of previous years Donald Coles made available his boat “Kingdom Come” for members to be able to do boat fishing as well as fishing from the pier. Donald and Dr. John Coles invested intensely into preparing the 21 ft. long vessel as it is still in the process of restoration.

Members gathered at the one of the pavilions in the parkland near the pier and a day of fishing socializing, eating and boating was enjoyed by members and friends of the Unificationist community.

“Kingdom Come” was launched at Cabbage Tree Creek, Sandgate and driven around to the pier where it was used to take members out fishing. The second and third generation particularly enjoyed the boat experience, though one shed tears of disappointment that he hadn’t been able to catch a fish!

Thanks to all who made the day a fitting memory of True Father and a great example of True Father’s vision for “hobby industry”
