France: Teaching Divine Principle to Peace Ambassadors and Guests
Prepared by UPF France
Paris Education Centre, France, March 16, 2017
Since October 2016, UPF and WFWP have been organizing a weekly Divine Principle lecture for Peace Ambassadors and contacts, every Thursday evening from 7 to 9 pm, at the Paris Education Center.
Called “Jeudis de Barrault” (“Thursdays at Barrault”), after the public name of the center, “Espace Barrault”, the program has become a regular opportunity for our members to bring their guests and to meet, centering on True Parents’ precious Word.
The 21-week course featured presentations covering every chapter of the Divine Principle – with a particular emphasis on Chapter 1 – given by three lecturers: Jacques Marion, Didier Guignard and Hanna Lotterie. The last session on True Parents’ life, vision and activities, was held last Thursday March 9, concluding this first cycle.
After a one-hour presentation with slides, the lecturer invited participants for a question and answer session in a friendly atmosphere with snack and drinks.
15 to 20 participants attended the program regularly: an average of 5 to 6 guests, their spiritual parents and other members who came to support and refresh their minds and hearts with True Parents’ teaching. Some guests followed the course for practically 21 weeks.
The lecturers developed new series of 21 PowerPoint presentations.
