Under the presence of Kyoshu-sama, the only one who inherits and carries out the sacred work of Meishu-sama, a Profession Ceremony solemnly took place on June 20 at the Nagoya Church. Masaaki-sama, Kyoshu-sama’s successor, was also present. Those wishing to become members came from various parts of the country, along with those that guided them.
At 1:30 p.m., the service began with Kyoshu-sama entering the altar area and offering the Opening Prayer to God. Everyone offered a bow of reverence to the divine image of Meishu-sama and then received Johrei from Kyoshu-sama.
The video “To Become Children of God: To Be Born Anew” was presented, and after a brief interval, Kyoshu-sama presented the Ohikari to each candidate wishing to profess their faith and become a member, ending the ceremony.
In a Sekai Kyusei Kyo made up of three organizations, new members received and wore the Ohikari of true brilliant light, the Ohikari consecrated by the legitimate Kyoshu-sama. What a joy this must be!
Together with our new members, our friends of light, let us boldly go forward on this path of truth faith shown to us by Kyoshu-sama!
