Having completed his first Day of Hope speaking tour of eight American cities in 1972, True Father mobilized American Unificationists for a more ambitious 21-city Day of Hope tour to begin in New York City’s Carnegie Hall on October 3, 1973. By the end of August, more than four hundred Unificationists gathered to publicize the Day of Hope talks under the theme “Christianity in Crisis: New Hope.”
On September 22, a major rally was staged on the steps of Federal Hall on Wall Street. The New York Daily News carried a large photo and article on the rally. Time, Newsweek and Christianity Today all carried stories on the campaign, and Associated Press religion writer George W. Cornell’s generally positive feature story appeared in 79 newspapers throughout the United States.
The following is the official translation of Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon’s message at Think Tank 2022 Rally of Hope for a Heavenly Unified Korea on September 12, 2021.
I listened intently, with sincere attention and gratitude, to the keynote addresses delivered by all the leaders longing for peace worldwide, and particularly by the seven heads of state who attended THINK TANK 2022.
To see the completion of the providence of God that is the hope of this age, you who have been chosen based on the history of God’s work should know that God is fully present within the profound meaning of the work to bring about a world of peace and a heavenly unified Korea.
God, our Creator, is the Heavenly Parent of humankind. Today, we find ourselves in a situation where people, although they are Heavenly Parent’s children, are unable to go to Him. So, I would like to speak today on the subject of “The History of Modern Human Civilization and the Present Day from the Viewpoint of God’s Providence.”
