Explanation of the Founders' Vision for Universal Peace Federation

Explanation of the Founders' Vision for the Universal Peace Federation (UPF):

One Day Seminar held in London HQ for UPF

On the 7th of May, Dr David Earle, Rev Dr David Hanna and David Fraser Harris presented a one-day seminar on the vision of Rev Dr Sun Myung Moon and his wife, Dr Hak Ja Han Moon when they inaugurated UPF in September 2005. During the day the Chair of the UPF UK Trustees, Keith Best, and Dr Michael Balcomb, the President of the FFWPU for Europe and the Middle East, addressed the audience as well. The audience included those in the room, with a big contingent from Birmingham, and those joining us from further away in the UK or other nations via Zoom, Facebook and Youtube. 

There was a great sense of happiness to be together again in person for those who attended the programme in Lancaster Gate. There was a joy to either review or hear for the first time the vision that underlies UPF and its activities both here in the UK and across the world. Please see the presentations through the links below.  

The explanation of the Founder's Vision for the Universal Peace Federation encompasses both the principles by which the UPF operates and the activities that it has done, is currently involved in and its future goals. We have tried to bring these elements into the days presentations.

It was very interesting to join in for UPF meeting yesterday thanks for this. I had almost attended all of the meeting. Pleased to listen to David (Earle) opening the meeting with all the good work you both are involved in & continue to do so. Interesting to hear about the Scriptures by David Hanna also it was good to listen all the work that has been ongoing for a number of years by UPF and other organisations. Heartening to listen to the experiences of different individuals attending the meeting, including yourself (Patricia Earle).
