On July 1, the July Monthly Service took place in the headquarters altar room under the presence of Kyoshu-sama, Master of Rituals and Ceremonies.
Masaaki-sama continued, saying with unwavering conviction that with His overflowing love, God has been waiting for us to return since the very beginning when He bore us, having already passed judgment on us and saying, “No matter what, I forgive you.” Even though we are ones who constantly seek for what suits us, God has forgiven us. It is important for us to think, even for just a moment, “God, I will seek no further. God, I will no longer expect from You anymore.” If we can go before God with courage, and be embraced by Him without hesitation, we will once again be able to experience the indescribable joy we once felt in heaven long ago.
It was raining on the day of the service. But coming to know that God is love only, members’ expressions were bright and cheerful, and they left the headquarters with great hope in their hearts.
