Let us be reborn into someone God wants us to be

first_imgLet us be reborn into someone God wants us to be! Unification Movement – Japan: After the Holy Marriage in 1960, True Parents paid a first visit to Japan in 1965. Commemorating the 50th anniversary of their visit, a special assembly was held at the church headquarters’ sanctuary on January 28th.Mr. Haruyoshi Yano, Director of General Affairs Department, served as the emcee. The assembly was opened with the rendering of the Cheon Il Guk anthem, then opening prayer by Mr. Tomihiro Tanaka, Vice President of Unification Church of Japan.The congregation could experience True Parents’ appearance and voice, as they watched a film of their visit in 1965. Mrs. Sonomi Kawanishi, representing Blessed Wives of Shibuya Church, read out True Father’s sermon “Align and unite with the center” originally given in the headquarters’ Sunday service on February 2th 1965.In the sermon, True Father described Japanese spirit: “You know the Yamato Spirit. What is Yamato? It signifies the belief of a big home, a big family. Is the Japanese spirit really the Yamato Spirit? It responds to everything and becomes one. If that is the case, it can unify the world.”He then prayed; “I pray they will remember this day we met in Japan, the words I spoke and everything that happened. May you protect and guide them so that their inconspicuous faith can reach God’s highest victorious realm!”In his commemorative message, Rev. Tokuno called out to “Give a big hand to Heavenly Parent, True Parents and True Love for guiding and protecting the development of Unification Church of Japan for these 50 years since True Parents first came to Japan!” The congregation applauded with gratitude.Rev. Tokuno shared that True Father had told him that he “tied a relationship of first love with Japan”. Rev. Tokuno said: “It probably occurred during True Father’s years as a student in Japan, around 21 years old when a person’s sensitivity gets very sharp.”“In the aftermath of the war when most of the Korean people were vindictive to Japanese officials, True Father actually protected the police officer who had once tortured him, even arranging safe return to Japan of this officer’s family”, Tokuno said. He also reminded that True Father had loved Japan more than anyone else and blessed us. “We should never forget this as Japanese people”, he said.Rev. Tokuno concluded: “Children of genuine filial piety are those who support their parents when they are most in need, taking up their cross unconditionally in order to lighten their parents’ burden. Let us unite into one as Unification Church of Japan, giving back joy and consolation to True Mother. We shall start a new 50 years!”Then a benediction was offered by Rev. Tokuno, followed by cheers of oek-mansei led by Mr. Masaichi Hori, South Tokyo Parish Director. The service closed after pictures were taken of the entire congregation.Commemorating the 50-year anniversary of True Parents’designation of the Yashima Holy Ground in Takamatsu City, Kagawa Prefecture, a special event was hosted by the Region 10 on February 4th. Rev. Yong Cheon Song, Chairman of the National Blessed Families Federation, was invited by Kagawa Parish for this occasion.Around 500 members gathered at Takamatsu Church, whose sanctuary and the monitor room accommodated them.After viewing the film commemorating the 50th anniversary of True Parents’ visit to Japan, Mr. Kiyoharu Takeuchi, Region’s Director of Family Education, reported on the history of Yashima Holy Ground as well as True Father’s words on the occasion.Mr. Keisuke Kamijo, Regional Director, offered greetings. Then, beautiful rendering of two songs; ‘Devoted Heart’ and ‘Love for Heaven, People and Nation’ was performed by Tokushima Parish choir, filling the sanctuary with their pure voices.Rev. Song offered a message full of love and consolation, from his heart to each and every member: “All of you are the finest gems to True Parents. Please remember that True Parents are always with you!” He added that “It is most important for ‘myself ’ to be reborn into a new being that God deems good.” He then passionately shared his own determination and challenge towards a victorious Vision2020.Rev. Song sang ‘Uri nun Hanada (we are one)’, uplifting the spirits of the congregation. It was a moving new beginning for all.Reflections“I felt the serious determination of True Parents.”Toyoko Fujii (777 couples) of Takamatsu Church: This 50th anniversary reminded me of the serious and strong resolve of True Parents when they visited here. I shall devote my sincere heart into building our church and educating the second generation, because, as a church elder, our family has received much forgiveness and tolerance. I made a new determination to give something back by bringing victory. “I made a determination to realizing God’s dream!”N.Y. (a group leader) of Marugame Church, Kagawa Parish: When I think of True Father who risked his life to visit Takamatsu, designate the holy ground and pray for God, the humanity, Kagawa and Shikoku, I felt I was here thanks to the overwhelming love, endurance and forgiveness on the part of God and True Parents. Through Rev. Song’s message, I made a determination to become one of those who would realize God’s dream as the Fourth Israel.last_img read more

Just 35 seconds in the fight and the imitable Mike

first_imgJust 35 seconds in the fight and the imitable Mike Goldberg would be yelling “IT IS ALL OVER!” Bader clipped Emelianenko with a lead left hook, followed up with a right hand as Fedor was falling down, and got two more lefts flush before referee Mike Beltran had to save him. Take a look! Bellator 214: “Fedor vs. Bader” aired last night (Sat., Jan. 26, 2019) via Paramount Network from The Forum in Inglewood, California. A year long Heavyweight Grand Prix came to its epic conclusion as Fedor Emelianenko (38-5, 1 NC) and Light Heavyweight champion Ryan Bader (26-5) fought to crown a new 265 lb. champion. Sale Amanda Nunes’ Biggest Threat? Bader spoke to John McCarthy afterward.“Yeah look I had a great night but first and foremost please give it up for that man (Fedor), one of the best to ever do it, competing against that man I have a ton of respect for him. I’m fighting Fedor, one of the greatest of all time, it’s surreal — ton of respect for him where he’s at to keep fighting. What a night. He was setting up that right hand, I beat him to the punch. My team and I gotta get with Bellator, figure out where we want to be, I want to defend both for sure. Thanks to Scott Coker and the brass for putting this tournament together.”Featherweight sensation Aaron Pico (4-1), winner of four straight fights, sought to prove his credentials one more time against a more experienced opponent in Henry “OK” Corrales (16-3). Even though Pico is known for his incredible stopping power, and did momentarily rock Corrales with an uppercut, when the two did a mutual clinch and started throwing haymakers like a throwback bar brawl it was Corrales who landed the killer right hand that made Pico fall back unconscious at 1:07.

Ah, a dream come true from Iraq, this is my home. I don’t give up in the war, I don’t give up on God, he never give up on me. This is my brother here. Unbelievable right now. First, this fight is for my dad. He’s going for chemo this week. I did this for him, challenge myself to do this, dad I love you and I know you’ll win too — don’t give up.

Watch Holloway, Cyborg Do Work Via Ghost Cam King Ryan Longsleeve Shirt Kiser fared slightly better than you’d expect, circling on the outside and connecting with a right hand to the head when Hager shot in, but Hager easily took him down and got on top in half guard. He considered a kimura but didn’t have the leverage for it. He did however succeed with a head and arm choke, getting Kiser to tap out at 2:09 of round one. After his first win Hager spoke with “Big” John McCarthy.“I feel like hard work pays off!! Perry, Oklahoma STAND UP!!! I was trying to slow everything down in my mind, keep control, I wanted to lay on him all day. I knew I’d get that big elbow in there and it was a matter of time before I’d get that arm triangle. I like it here at Bellator, I plan on this being life for the next decade. As long as you guys want to keep seeing me out here, I’m going to keep bringing it.”Bantamweights with only two losses between them stepped up for the main card as Juan Archuleta (21-1) faced off with Ricky Bandejas (11-1). There was one clear round for each man. Archuleta constantly switched his stance and knocked Bandejas backward with his surprising charges forward to throw big blows. Bandejas stuffed multiple takedowns and hurt Archuleta with head kicks throughout the third round. It would be up to the judges to decide it based on a close second round that could’ve gone either way. Latest From Our Partners Accessories Standard BJJ Gi WOW!

You know what dude? What’s done is done. Respect to Pico and all his people, but who the fuck is next? That’s five straight. I got my shit together in the desert. I’ll go with any of these dudes it doesn’t matter.”About ten more seconds of shout outs to people were also censored on the broadcast.A special attraction for the main card saw the man formerly known as Jack Swagger make his pro MMA debut as Jake Hager. To give him his best chance to succeed they paired him with J.W. Kiser (1-1), who didn’t seem to know where or for whom he was fighting. Hager and his friend Ron Killings certainly knew.

I knew he’s a stud, a stud wrestler, stud fighter, Caldwell spit shine that thing, Horiguchi if it’s you I’m coming for one of you guys.”Ilima-Lei Macfarlane and Rory MacDonald were at cageside to promote the recently announced Bellator card for April 27th. Macfarlane spoke about facing Veta Arteaga.“This is the best moment of my life and nothing can top that moment but I’m so excited to be back in the cage April 27th. I want to ride that Hawaiian wave and I’m still paddling. Veta let’s get it girl.”MacDonald talked about facing Jon Fitch in the final opening round bout of the Welterweight Grand Prix with his title on the line.“His strongest aspect is his wrestling, and his experience as well, but I don’t think that’s going to be enough when fighting a guy who is well rounded. Everywhere he’s strong I can counter that.”The opening bout of the card was Brandon McMahan vs. Adel Altamimi. Altamimi saw his brothers killed in front of him in Iraq before he was saved by the Marines, and he ultimately received a Bellator contract after training at Jay Glazer’s MVP gym (Merging Vets and Players). He made the most of it by winning via armbar 76 seconds into the fight.last_img read more
