USA: Winter Workshop Held at Minnesota Church Center
District 8 held a winter workshop on December 28 to December 31 at the new Minnesota Church Center. There were 40 participants from seven states; Minnesota, Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, Illinois, and Michigan.
The theme of the workshop was “Invite to Ignite,” which encompassed the importance of inviting God, True Parents, family, and friends into one’s life to help prepare them for the new year. There was good internal guidance by first and second generation Unificationists.
There were a lot of fun activities, such as a scavenger hunt at the Mall of America, Open Mic night, and bowling. The overall workshop was a great success.
“I gained a clearer understanding of the purpose of inviting people into my life.”
“I learned to be more intentional about investing in my relationships and to invite people that I want into my life so that space is not taken up by unwanted people or things.”
“God really really wants to be a part of our lives and he really loves us with a love unimaginable because his love is so strong. Inviting people into our lives leads to being there for each other which leads to being stronger as a team and as an individual.”
