As the Unification Theological Seminary (UTS) reaches its 40th year, faculty and staff are preparing for an unprecedented, three-day event to mark this milestone. That includes graduation of undergraduate as well as graduate students, a reception, a thinkers’ conference for alumni on Sunday and Monday, a documentary slide show, and an open discussion with President Hugh Spurgin– all at the Barrytown campus where the Founder began the school in September 1975.

A visitor to the chapel of the Unification Theological Seminary (UTS) in Barrytown today will open the door, and the first thing that hits him or her will be the light. His or her eyes will be drawn to shafts of light streaming down from 16 brand new, double-paned, tinted, argon-gas filled, segmented windows.

SCKimBookInternational One World Crusade (IOWC) Publications has produced a new book in honor of Dr. David S.C. Kim's tremendous service to God's Providence. Dr. Kim has served for 50 years as a missionary in the United States, including 20 years as the first president of Unification Theological Seminary. In earlier years he was the first missionary to the United Kingdom and a charter member of HSA-UWC in Korea. Entitled "The Words of David S.C. Kim: Let Us Learn from the Past," this book is a compilation of his writings and speeches from those historical times.

The phrase "Let Us Learn from the Past" is often used by Dr. Kim. By this he does not mean that we should return to a past time, but rather that we must learn from the past in order to build a brighter and better future. Dr. Kim's words draw our attention to the precious truths revealed by True Parents and he exhorts us never to lose the heavenly traditions and standards that True Parents have established. It is our hope that this book can be a valuable contribution to the establishment of God's Kingdom, Cheon Il Guk.

Proceeds from sales of this book will be used to complete a project of the IOWC that is very close to Dr. Kim's heart. This is a monumental stone memorial inscribed with the "Letter from God" in both English and Korean. Dr. Kim compares it to the Ten Commandments on the tablets of stone. Many have already donated to this project, for which Dr. Kim is very grateful. He is determined that now is the time to complete it.

If you would like to purchase the book and support this project, copies are currently available from IOWC for $25 each (includes shipping). To order, send a check to IOWC, PO Box 1755, Poughkeepsie, NY 12601. Please include your correct mailing address and how many copies of the book you would like. Checks should be made out to "IOWC." For a limited time, copies of the book will also be available for only $20 after service on Sundays at the Mid Hudson Valley Family Church.
