'I wish I had been taught this years ago. I would not have done the mistakes I have made.' one participant commented. Others said they were inspired by the activities of UPF in support of many human rights issues. One said that the wide range of partners that the UK chapter of UPF work with was impressive. Tim Miller, Margaret Ali, Patricia Earle, Carlo and Barbara Zaccarelli and Robin Marsh made presentations during the weekend. The Interfaith Tim Miller Universal ValuesConsortium supporting an Integration through Learning and Service project was described, in the last session of the weekend, by Mr Baldev Singh Bains. On Sunday morning also the vision of the Founders of UPF, Father and Mother Moon, was explained. 

Other major themes included the Inter-religious Council that Father Moon proposed for a reformed United Nations in the founding speeches of the UPF. The Council would add religious wisdom to the political decision making process of the UN. The importance of marriage and family was a major theme. Patricia Earle shared about her experience promoting the rededication of marriage. Tim Miller shared a number of significant points about how to improve the health of relationships, marriage and family.
