My tribal messiahship trinity group held a Marriage Blessing Ceremony on March 25, 2017. For ten years, our family used our family church as a base to witness by connecting more deeply with other Blessed Families, inviting guests, and holding study sessions. In the midst of that, last year, we believed that we could reach the goal of tribal messiahship through this trinity.
Last July, after participating the We Can Do It workshop, we resolved to make sharing the Marriage Blessing our ultimate goal. However, since this resolution, no Blessing Ceremonies took place within the year. And so, we discussed among ourselves what to do in the beginning of 2017.
We came to the conclusion that we must first invite our guests who were participating in our family church with us. From then on, we put our efforts in teaching our trinity members’ parents, who were from Nepal, the Divine Principle in six major sections.
On March 25, 2017, we held a successful Blessing Ceremony for these parents. It was our first time leading a Blessing Ceremony. Clifton Family Church Pastor, Manoj Jacob, and his wife, as well as members of the Clifton Family Church, helped to make it special.
My trinity gave me confidence that even we can hold the Blessing Ceremony, anytime and anywhere. It may be challenging to do for a single family, but other families can help by gathering and cooperating. That is the greatest thing about trinity tribal messiahship.
