On Friday morning, October 26, the American Clergy Leadership Conference (ACLC) welcomed nearly 200 people to their weekly Prayer Breakfast held at The Bank in the New Yorker Hotel.
President of Family Federation for World Peace and Unification (FFWPU), Rev. Richard Buessing opened the Prayer Breakfast with the word of the day; “Gratitude.” He said to be grateful for all of the blessings God has given us, like our freedom and our freedom of religion. “We have a sense that our blessings are not just for ourselves, but for everyone around the world. We are living for the sake of others.”
Dr. Ki Hoon Kim, Regional Chairman of FFWPU North America spoke a few words about God’s miracles. “Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon is a miracle. Even when she encounters controversy, she does not fear. Last year at Madison Square Garden, Dr. Moon taught 20,000 people how to save this God-blessed nation.” Dr. Kim continued with the promise of witnessing miracles at the Peace Starts with Me Rally on November 12.
The keynote speaker for the Prayer Breakfast was Archbishop Angelo Rosario, Pastor of Church of God’s Children who touched on the importance of peace. He made the realization that even religions don’t live in peace. “They proclaim peace and then go to war.” God created Dr. Moon and her late husband Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon to make peace and not just talk about making peace. Archbishop Rosario concluded his message with a proclamation for peace; “If we lose peace we lose love, is we lose love we lose compassion, if we lose compassion we lose understanding, if we lose understanding we lose the love of God which will result in chaos within ourselves.”
