Mr. Timothy Miller representing the Unificationist perspective as a Vice- President of FFWPU Europe, explained about his personal experience as part of Rev. Dr. and Mrs. Moon’s Cross Cultural Marriage Wedding /Blessing and the vision of “World Peace through Ideal Families”. He described in detail the need for a “True” Family movement in order to create a new culture of commitment that is sorely missing today and causing a dangerous destabilization. Religion cannot have credibility if it cannot go beyond faith and denomination. If we cannot put deeds to practice, cannot live for others as an individual, unlikely that we can make a good marriage.
Religious people have an invaluable contribution to make towards peace and prosperity. How amazing that the place where man and women meet is the place where life is created, the same “place where love meets life and God”. Love, life and lineage. “Father Moon” often asked us, what is most important among the three? Lineage, he would say. Lineage connects the past to the future. Mr. Miller pointed out similarities among the different religions‟ high esteem for parental love. We need to swing the pendulum back to rethink values such as purity and fidelity.
