USA: Ye-Jin Moon and Family Members Visit Boston Family Church
Prepared by FFWPU USA
On Sunday, June 10, the Boston Family Church was honored to welcome members of three generations of the True Family: True Parents’ first child, Ye-Jin Nim, her daughter, Shinhwa and her husband Alex, and their three children, Shim-Mi, Sung-Jin and Hae-Un.
Ye-Jin Nim has written a thesis for her Unification Theological Seminary (UTS) doctorate entitled, “The Need to Recover Gender Balance, to Understand God as Both Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother.” She came to Boston to present a summary of the thesis as a Sunday sermon at the Boston Family Church. Prior to coming to Boston, Ye-Jin Nim presented her material to the New Jersey chapter of Women’s Federation for World Peace (WFWP), the Manhattan Family Church and the Maryland Family Church. As Shinhwa and her family live in Connecticut and is also a friend of the Boston Family Church Pastor, Catherine Ono, they decided to accompany Ye-Jin Nim to Boston.
Unificationist families came from all over New England to attend the service. Each participant had read a synopsis of her thesis ahead of time and filled out a survey for Ye-Jin Nim to use as research material. She elaborated on her thesis and the difficulties between men and women dating back to the coming of Adam and Eve. Now is the age of women, where Heavenly Parent can work through women, such as True Mother, to restore the role of Eve.
Following the presentation of flowers to Ye-Jin Nim and her family, a special ceremony was held during which Ye-Jin Nim presented congratulatory cards to all of the 2018 graduates in attendance. She also signed cards for those graduates who could not be there. “Through that simple gesture,” said Pastor Ono, “everyone felt Tue Parents’ love and encouragement.”
Ye-Jin Nim and her family then joined with the community to share in its weekly post-Sunday Service lunch. “We all felt as if we’d experienced a little taste of heaven,” said Pastor Ono, “for which we are so grateful.”
