On September 22-24, CARP Dominican Republic conducted 3-days Hyojeong Divine Principle Workshop participated by 24 young people at Finca, Bonao. The workshop was divided into two parts based on the level of the participants. The Divine Principle Workshop is for the new guest and new CARP members who want to understand deeply the Divine Principle. The other is Hyojeong Workshop which exclusive only for the CARP members who are giving DP lecture at CARP Center as well as the other second generation who wants to learn how to give DP lectures. The purpose of this workshop is to raise young lecturers by teaching them the standard of giving lectures set by our professional lecturers. Moreover, it is very important to see our young members who are giving lectures to other CARP members to make sure we they are following the traditional way of giving Divine Principle Lecture.
The Divine Principle was divided into 8 lectures to focus on the important parts that the new members need to understand. The Hyojeong participants gave the 8 lectures as well to learn how to give the Divine Principle Lecture in general. Each participant has their own topic to explain and after that all the lecturer will receive some comments from the listeners. In the end of the whole lectures, the participants have the opportunity to ask questions to the main Lecturers. Lic. Cesar Regalado who are in charged in Divine Principle Workshop gave clear explanations to every question from the Divine Principle Workshop participants whole Lic. Bernardo Cruz handled the difficult questions of the young lecturers.
The two workshops were concluded by having closing ceremony together. Lic. Jake Lavina, the President of W-CARP- Dominican Republic encouraged all the participants to continue to invest on their life of faith and establish a God centered life centering on the Principle. Everyone is happy to be part of this Workshop and they are more determined to face the new level of their life of faith with full of hope and inspiration. We do believe that through this workshop we could be able to educate our young people to live their lives closer to God and TP, and become true sons and daughters of God and TP as we open the New Era of Heavenly Latin America.
