We are pleased to announce that a newly revised version of the “Blessed Family Traditions” book has just been released. It replaces the publication that came out more than 30 years ago. This new version includes updated traditions established by True Parents since the last publication was released.
It is now available to download for free at: bfm.familyfed.org/traditions
Our True Parents established spiritual traditions through their life of attendance to Heavenly Parent. By inheriting their traditions, we can grow the heart of a true child, sibling, spouse and parent and express true love in our families.
“As Blessed Families who have lived in the same age as True Parents, what should you leave behind? Lineage is important, as are traditions. What is the tradition of Unification Church? The tradition of the Unification Church is Divine Principle. Of course, the Divine Principle book itself is not our tradition. The tradition is everything that is behind the Divine Principle book, which is heart.” – True Parents
Likewise, behind the external practice of the Blessed Family traditions is Heavenly Parents’ original and eternal impulse to give joy and receive love. By understanding these practices our devotion grows into a cultural identity rooted in True Parents’ teachings. By our example, we naturally bequeath True Parents’ life traditions to our children and children’s children, and God’s Kingdom of Heaven on Earth expands.
We hope you and your family will find this guidebook helpful as you express devotion to Heavenly Parent and True Parents, and carry on the traditions established by our True Parents. May Heavenly Parents’ love and blessings be with you always!
