Bergen aan Zee, Netherlands—Thirty participants gathered at a beautiful North Sea resort town for a seminar on the “UPF Vision and Peace Principles.”

The seminar, held at the Glory House estate from May 10 to 12, 2019, attracted UPF Ambassadors for Peace, religious leaders and other guests from Austria, Bulgaria, France, Germany, Russia, and Serbia as well as from the Netherlands.

Beginning with an introduction of the UPF founders’ life and vision, the program included presentations on the UPF Principles of Peace alternating with discussions and time to enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings.

Presentations on the UPF founders’ philosophy of peace included themes such as: the nature of the Ultimate Cause of the universe; the principles of interaction; human freedom and responsibility; the three stages of life; the causes and resolution of conflict; the principles of restoration through religion; faith and reason in modern European history; and the ideals of interdependence, mutual prosperity and universal values.

Concluding with a presentation on the UPF peace initiatives, the seminar was an opportunity for participants to connect the multiple activities of the organization with the fundamental vision guiding it, and to appreciate the founders in a new light, as peacemakers.
