A Letter from Dr Michael & Fumiko Balcomb
Dear EUME Families,
Fumiko and I wish you every blessing for the two upcoming Holy Days, the 60th Day of All True Things and the 68th Anniversary of the Founding of HSAUWC which will both be celebrated this coming Monday 30th May. Most communities in the EUME region are planning to hold in-person pledge services, while other families will celebrate from home. In all cases, we are encouraged to keep our traditions by creating a Holy Table, making a holy day offering donation and investing all our devotion just as if we were hosting Heavenly Parent and True Parents in our own homes.
Additionally, we are all being invited to join the livestream broadcast from Korea with True Parents and with our brothers and sisters from around the world. As is often the case, this most Godly celebration takes place at what for us is an ungodly hour – 0130am for a 0200am start in the Central European Time Zone, and even earlier here in London. Looking on the bright side though, it doesn’t clash with anyone’s working schedule! Moreover, True Mother knows well that her loyal sons and daughters of EUME will be with her 24 hours of this special day. So, please let’s be together!
The very first Holy Day that I joined was the 14th Day of All Things (no “True” in those days!) It was the Spring of 1976 in San Francisco and we had a great picnic and music festival in a city park, inviting passers-by to join in our fun, games and feasting. And it was fun. In that spirit of witnessing, let’s invite as many people as we can from our neighbours in the holy community to join us in this festival of thanksgiving. Together, we show our gratitude to God for the good things in life given freely to all of us: “He makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust,” as Jesus said in the Sermon on the Mount (Matt. 5:45) In return, God expects that we too should love everyone, even our enemies. Timeless guidance for us all at this time when our continent is being torn apart by war.
Father talks about the founding Day of HSAUWC in his autobiography, As a Peace Loving Global Citizen. He did not want to create a new church, but the time came to make a new beginning, so:
We hung out a sign that read “Holy Spirit Association for the Unification of World Christianity.” We chose this name to signify that we belonged to no denomination, and we certainly had no plans to create a new one … our name is meant to say, “The spiritual world, centering on God, is with us.”
What a thought! Heaven and Earth, and God himself, are with us! True Mother is always urging us to inherit the spirit and faith of those early days.
Once again, every good wish for this special day. See you soon!

What is the History of the Day of All True Things?
This year’s Day Of All True Things, which celebrates all the things that belong to you with God, will take place on Monday 30th May 2022.
“Day Of All Things” was founded on May 1st, 1963 as one of the major Unificationist Holy Days. True Father added “true” to this holiday in 1994.
This year, the Holy Day will take place on Monday, May 30th 2022.
What has Rev. Sun Myung Moon said on the “Day Of All True Things”?
“What, then, should we do during the arrival of the era of all things? We must connect all horizontal nations and the entire realm of all things. When looking at America, what was the first thing Puritans did when they arrived in America? They built a church. Then they farmed and finally they created a new world culture. Today, America has become a leading country in the world. It served God first so it has been blessed. That is the principle. That is why I am doing the same thing.
The families that have been blessed until now all stand in a position of glory. In other words, they are in the realm of paradise and the kingdom of Heaven. Then from whom did you receive the benefit of entering into that realm? Did you receive it because of your own merit? It could happen thanks to Teacher. I have engrafted you to me on the family level. You should be able to repay that.
Why do we celebrate the Day of All Things? To unite all the things that belong to you with God. In order to do that, you must dedicate to God all jointly held property (everything that belongs to the country) not to mention private property. This is your responsibility. Hence, each time we celebrate the Day of All Things, you must think, has the Korean Peninsula become a nation that can be dedicated to God?
So far, even the village you are from is still in the grips of Satan’s realm, so you are not able to act freely on the foundation of Father’s name. You must think about how you can offer this up to God.”
