Greeting from Rev. Shirasawa, President of Izunome Group

Su no Hikari Kyodan Headquarters Altar Room,
Atami Zuiun-kyo Sacred Grounds
July 1, 2019
Congratulations, everyone, on the Prayer for World Peace Service.

Today, I have received some time before President Narii’s greeting and I would like to say a few words.

First, member of the House of Councilors (of the Japanese Diet), Mr. Kunihiko Muroi is attending the service today and I would like to present him to you. Mr. Muroi, if you may, please stand.
This month on the 21st, the House of Councilors election is taking place. As Izunome Group, we support Mr. Muroi and would like for him to be able to continue his active participation at the national level of government. I ask from all of you, the members, for your further endorsement and combined efforts.

Thank you very much.

Next, with Izunome Group having received a place within Su no Hikari Kyodan from May of last year, we have been moving forward in coordination and collaboration with each other. And now, with “Always one heart with Kyoshu-sama” as the church guideline/motto, we are walking with the same thought, as one – holding services together including grand services and using the same publications, such as the organizational magazine Shinzenbi and the leaflet (Who We Are: We Were Born on Earth to Become Children of God).

In the May issue of Shinzenbi, one of Kyoshu-sama’s hymns was published, reading:

O God who creates!
Your purpose of Creation is to bear Your very own child.
Knowing this, I stand in awe and fear of You.

We would like to receive this God’s will and become a child of God united with the name of Messiah. For this purpose, as President Narii always says, we accept Kyoshu-sama’s guidance as the one and only, absolute guidepost to receive Meishu-sama’s truth and we serve single-mindedly in this new phase of divine work – this is our church.
In this way, the path that we, Su no Hikari Kyodan, Izunome Group and Toho no Hikari Group, are aiming for, the path that we are walking, is exactly the same. I believe that precisely because of that, all of us were able to receive permission to become one, gathering under Kyoshu-sama.
Under Yoichi Okada Kyoshu-sama, Fourth Spiritual Leader, who guides us on Meishu-sama’s true will in the founding of World Church of Messiah (Sekai Meshiya Kyo in Japanese), we are one church. That is how God is guiding us and in order to advance this new phase of divine work that He has prepared, we will make efforts centering around President Narii seeking still further unified ways, transcending coordination and collaboration.
Together with all of you, I wish to start anew as a church group in which Kyoshu-sama and all of us, members around the world, are able to have heart-to-heart exchanges without any obstructions and be a church in which we can seek Meishu-sama’s true wish through Kyoshu-sama’s guidance.
Everyone, “Always one heart with Kyoshu-sama,” let us become one and walk this path together.

Thank you very much.
