Sun Myung Moon, A Legacy of Love – Life, Teachings and Testimonies

Universal Peace Federation held an event in memory of the Founder of this International organization, who affectionately was called Father Moon or Father of Peace, by the vast majority of the friends and supporters of this Global Movement.

This was a UPF national initiative, which aims to make known other aspects of his Life and Work, not so much addressed in the events of last year Centenary Celebrations, namely his most challenging teachings in his life cause of searching for world Peace.

The Program initiated with an introductory video with some passages of Sun Myung Moon teachings, and four national Testimonies from:
– The Magnificent Prof. Doctor Carlos Poiares, Vice-rector of the Lisbon Lusophone University
– Prof. Delmar Gonçalves, President of the Circle of Mozambican Writers in the Diaspora and a long time Ambassador for Peace
– Dr. Adriana Melges, Psychologist and Ambassador for Peace
– Lia Vieira, young member of HARP
The speakers could share some of their knowledge about the Founder and our Peace Movement, some of their experience alongside with our UPF organization, their participation in some nationally and/or internationally Activities, Events, etc,

Young Lia Vieira spoke about the fact that she was born within this peace movement and how the important lessons learned so far from the Moon Couple, have marked the difference in her moral and ethical choices during her young life, which can make her a better future adult.

After a Musical moment, there was the main Presentation by Dr. Sérgio Vieira, national President of Universal Peace Federation Portugal – “Sun Myung Moon, A Legacy of Love – Life, Teachings and Testimonies”, with the Centenary Posters, included with the choose of some main internal quotations of Father Moon`s discovering about God relationship with Human Beings, living for the sake of others, forgiving the enemies, the benefits of the giving and sharing Tradition, true love and the value of human beings as needed objects for God`s circulating love.

The program ended with some announcements about our next main events in April and the promotion of the two Autobiographies from the Moon couple.

Thank You to the Speakers and to all of the Participants “We Are Together”
