“One Family Under God;” Int’l Assoc. of Parliamentarians for Peace

Several Caribbean Islands joined the International Association of Parliamentarians for Peace at the end of September. St. Lucia, St. Vincent, Trinidad and Tobago and Barbados have followed the example of the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica as well as more than 40 nations around the world.

Going beyond race, religion and nationality, the IAPP is working to build “One Family Under God.” It works to resolve problems such as family breakdown, climate change, terrorism, the economy, among others.

However, one immediate task we must resolve at the moment is the peaceful reunification of the two Koreas as one nation under God. The IAPP is proposing a United Nation’s Peace Office at the DMZ to support both Koreas.

The founders of the Universal Peace Federation, Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon and Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon, launched the global “Parliamentarians for Peace” initiative in 2001 centered on the Ambassadors for Peace. This initiative was also a point of focus of the 2005 Universal Peace Federation Inaugural Tour to 120 nations, and has brought together many parliamentarians from around the world through diverse programs aimed at contributing to the realization of lasting peace.

Dr. Moon himself spent two years and eight months in a death camp in North Korea. Understanding first hand that a God denying ideology such as communism cannot bring about a happy and peaceful world, he worked his entire life to liberate his homeland.

Starting from a one room church that he made out of mud and army ration boxes, he walked a lonely course to build a world of peace. Now in 120 countries, Heads of State, Prime Ministers, Presidents and Parliamentarians are actually about to realize the dream of a peaceful and happy world.
